Lo­cal sports fans are a pretty happy bunch right about now. The soc­cer team is poised to make an­other ti­tle run, the hockey team is the most ex­cit­ing it has been in decades, the Rap­tors are play­off-bound. And now we are home to the world’s first and only transat­lantic rugby team.The Toronto Wolfpack started its sea­son win­ning the first three league games in the U.K., and will soon make its home­town de­but at Lam­port Sta­dium ver­sus Ox­ford RLFC. Let’s go Wolfpack!


Toronto’s iconic Do­min­ion Pub­lic Build­ing, at 1 Front St. W., has been sold to a devel­oper for a whop­ping $275.1 mil­lion. Al­though no plans have been an­nounced yet, it seems al­most cer­tain that a mas­sive de­vel­op­ment scheme will be hatched in­volv­ing a condo and pos­si­bly a ho­tel. The Beaux-Arts build­ing does have con­sid­er­able her­itage pro­tec­tion, so any tower will likely rise from the ex­ist­ing struc­ture, which was built be­tween 1929 and 1935 and served as the Toronto Cus­toms House.


T.O. en­tre­pre­neur Matthew Cor­rin cer­tainly has some in­ter­est­ing busi­ness sense. The founder of the pop­u­lar health food chain Freshii re­cently re­leased a pub­lic let­ter of sorts di­rected at Sub­way fran­chisees ask­ing them to push the sub­marines aside and con­vert their out­lets to Freshiis. Sub­way cur­rently op­er­ates more than 40,000 lo­ca­tions around the world, whereas up­start Freshii boasts a cool 244. The lo­cal boy made good has moxie, we’ll give him that.
