Midtown Post - - Neighbourhood News - by Neil Eti­enne & Nikki Gill

North Toronto’s Dal­las Green, also known as City and Colour, has been an­nounced as one of the main head­lin­ers for the Sept. 6 to 7 Riot Fest and Expo at Downsview Park. The singer-song­writer will be join­ing a long list of ma­jor acts as the di­verse in­ter­na­tional mu­sic fes­ti­val cel­e­brates its 10th an­niver­sary with more than 110 rock, punk, pop and in­die bands. Started in Chicago by fans seek­ing low ticket prices and ac­cess to in­die mu­sic, it hit Toronto for the first time in 2012 and is re­turn­ing with a wide ar­ray of styles to suit most tastes.

For­est Hill res­i­dent Michael Bud­man, along with his Roots co­founder, Don Green, will be re­ceiv­ing the distin­guished re­tail founders award for life­time achieve­ment at the Ex­cel­lence in Re­tail­ing Awards Gala on June 3 at the Toronto Congress Cen­tre. The award will be pre­sented by the Re­tail Coun­cil of Canada to rec­og­nize the con­tri­bu­tion Roots has made to the re­tail in­dus­try in Canada.

Haver­gal grad­u­ate Eileen Jur­czak teamed up with her em­ployer, BMO Fi­nan­cial Group, and her alma maters Haver­gal Col­lege and the Rot­man School of Man­age­ment to de­sign a pro­gram to teach Haver­gal stu­dents about ca­reer op­por­tu­ni­ties in fi­nance.

In what seems to be a sub­stan­tial fall from grace, for­mer Rosedale “Glit­ter Girl” Nancy Tsai — pre­vi­ously known as Nancy Paul when she be­gan the Cana­dian Breast Cancer Foun­da­tion in 1986 — is fac­ing fraud charges in Florida. It is al­leged the 66-year-old, now a res­i­dent of Palm Beach, bilked a 92-year-old Alzheimer’s pa­tient of trust ac­count money in or­der to fund a lav­ish life­style.
