Jim Karygiannis is back on city council and Beck Taxi couldn't be happier!...Let's face it, the education system is broken but neither side seems to realize it nor do they wish to actually fix it, both sides would rather just up the rhetoric...Coach Babcock is gone and the Leafs put together a win streak, funny how that happens, eh?...The Provincial Liberals get their leadership race up and running; do you think they'll find an adequate palate cleanser?...CBC's "Anne with an E" gets cancelled with a capital "C"!...Andrew Scheer hangs on to his job after firing two of his assistants; hey Andy,they didn't lose the election, you did!

Were you one of the "Itoljaso" people after Babcock was axed?...Premier Dougie meets PM Trudy in Ottawa but won't meet with Scheer? Interesting...E-scooters, quite possibly the worst thing on the roads today...Hey, the Leafs won a game! That's right, one game. Putting things in perspective, the Dallas Stars have gone 9 and 1 lately so hit me up once the Leafs have done that...Have you listened to Don Cherry's new podcast? Has anybody?...And Prince Andrew, once known as 'Randy Andy' has put a fresh blemish on the face of the Royal Family...this time for much worse than his dating history!

Snow has arrived in Toronto! How long before the Federal PCs put out the 'Help Wanted' sign? Elizabeth May heads off to "greener" pastures. What's up with Willie Nylander? As the winter approaches, please remember the less fortunate who rely on food banks. The provincial government attempts a friendlier tone at Queen's Park...wonder how long that will last.

Looks like you've been riding for free a lot...well done, Metrolinx! Hey Leafs, cut the swagger and put some wins up on the board already!

Will anybody likeable win this election? Highly improbable...but please do be sure to vote! Are these Leafs the real deal? Early signs say "maybe not"...Pinball Clemons has a Sisyphean task ahead of him. Will the election of Scheer further delay the Scarborough subway? Remember the St. Mike's sex scandal? Well, guess who's been served with a gigantic juicy lawsuit? Cannabis edibles are now legal but you still have to wait just a little bit for your munchies. Molson and HexoCorp are working on CBD-infused spring water...giving a new dimension to the term 'joint venture'!

So summer seems to be lurking...not a bad deal! Are you digging all the election promises? Don't forget that what's being promised will be funded by you! The Leafs hope to announce a team captain soon...keep your pants on, Auston! TTC streetcars get cameras...to take pictures of cars sneaking by open doors...I guess fare jumping is a smaller problem?? Boy it sure is weird that Premier Dougie is not campaigning for Andy Scheer. Will oil hit the $100/barrel mark? Because gas isn't already expensive enough!

The provincial government has lost $42-million selling cannabis...and we all thought Dougie knew how to peddle...and then there's Justin's racist history (with apologies to Peter Green and Santana)...

Uh-oh, summer is almost over! Maxime Bernier...does he really have a chance to be PM? Premier Dougie wants to do something about gun violence in Toronto...but he did change his mind on autism, education, greenbelt, et cetera. Why is this pot shop lottery even a thing?

Federal PC Leader Andy Scheer is haunted by a clip from 2005...remember kids, the internet lives forever!

Boy oh boy the Argos are off to a terrible start! Toronto Police issued 800 tickets in one week to aggressive drivers...can we get on to the aggressive cyclists now? Are you exhausted by Kawhi-watch? Another Dean French appointment goes 'buh-bye'. The Federal Tories have a big bankroll for the fall election...now if only something could be done about their leader 'Andy'. Jobs are on the rise in Canada, but they may not be the job you want! More passengers stuck on a plane for hours in Hamilton...some folk just can not win!

Premier Dougie lays off 400 health care workers while also eliminating 400 posts that were vacant...why the hell were 400 positions vacant anyway? And Happy Pride everyone!
