Of bach­e­lors, books and Beker

Richmond Hill Post - - Editor’s Notes - By Ron John­son

I re­mem­ber watch­ing an old video of an in­ter­view with leg­endary punk band the Clash after their first con­cert in Toronto. Need­less to say, things were bro­ken, and the band was can­tan­ker­ous, to say the least. But, one of the gutsy young in­ter­view­ers, from Ci­tytv’s New Mu­sic pro­gram, held her ground with Joe Strum­mer and his crew. It was im­pres­sive to watch, and that young in­ter­viewer was none other than Jeanne Beker who, of course, went on to be­come Canada’s top fash­ion per­son­al­ity.

Beker has been a fash­ion colum­nist with Post City for years. Ev­ery Oc­to­ber, we fea­ture the lat­est and great­est in the city’s fash­ion scene cu­rated by Beker her­self. Hope­fully our Jeanne Awards will be­come an an­nual tra­di­tion.

In ad­di­tion, this month we are happy to in­tro­duce a new colum­nist to our pages.

Dr. Jessica O’Reilly, a best­selling au­thor and TV per­son­al­ity, will be writ­ing a monthly re­la­tion­ship col­umn fo­cus­ing on re­la­tion­ships and how to keep the home fires burn­ing bright.

Also in our life sec­tion, Re­becca Eckler finds out the lat­est trend in on­line dat­ing geared to mid-lif­ers, and we pro­file Canada’s lat­est Bach­e­lor, Tim Warmels.

Our food sec­tion in­cludes reviews of two hot new restau­rants: Mon­tecito and DaiLo. And we also pro­file the group be­hind 416 Snack Bar and the new Peo­ples Eatery in Chi­na­town; taste test the city’s best turkey pot pie just in time for Thanks­giv­ing.

In the arts, Post City colum­nist and founder of Yuk Yuk’s, Mark Bres­lin, pens a mov­ing col­umn on his life with the late, great come­di­enne Joan Rivers.

Also, we speak with ac­claimed au­thor Ann-Marie MacDon­ald about her pow­er­ful new novel, Adult On­set, and of­fer up our picks for the fall the­atre sea­son.
