$8.25

Value of a De­grassi roy­al­ties cheque that Drake (a.k.a. Jimmy Brooks) re­cently re­ceived and posted on In­sta­gram, 10 years af­ter his fi­nal ap­pear­ance on the show.

$100

Re­ward of­fered by a New York man whose “doofy son” for­got where he parked their Nis­san Versa af­ter a Me­tal­lica con­cert at the Rogers Cen­tre. A Good Sa­mar­i­tan named Madi­son Rid­dolls found the car four days later.

$550

Amount now-fa­mous 73-year-old Adi Astl spent to build a set of wooden stairs at Tom Ri­ley Park in Eto­bi­coke. The city orig­i­nally es­ti­mated the job would cost more than $65,000.

$10,000

Re­ported amount, ex­clud­ing labour costs, that the city spent to build a new set of stairs af­ter re­mov­ing Astl’s DIY project be­cause it wasn’t up to mu­nic­i­pal code.

$250,000

Amount Metrolinx is spend­ing on “re­brand­ing,” in­clud­ing a newly de­signed logo and ef­forts to ed­u­cate the public on what the or­ga­ni­za­tion does.

$3,000,000

Amount the city of Carmel, In­di­ana, paid for Cen­tre­ville’s 110-year-old carousel. The Is­land theme park sold it to re­coup losses caused by this year’s floods.
