Of kids, kind­ness and crime fic­tion

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

It’s al­ways a re­ward­ing ex­pe­ri­ence to high­light some of the amaz­ing peo­ple that call Toronto home. And when we fo­cus on young peo­ple, like we did this month, it’s even bet­ter.

This is our first Top 20 Un­der 20 edi­tion, and the only chal­lenge with our story was in lim­it­ing our list. As you’ll see in this is­sue, there are so many im­pres­sive young­sters soon ready to make sig­nif­i­cant con­tri­bu­tions in this city and around the world.

Our res­i­dent fash­ion colum­nist, Jeanne Beker, kicks off our life sec­tion with a look at the city’s most fash­ion­able mini-bags — an ideal hol­i­day gift, fel­las, so pay at­ten­tion.

In ad­di­tion, we of­fer the lat­est from our colum­nists Re­becca Eckler, who ex­plores the eye-open­ing world of ran­dom acts of kind­ness, and Jessica O’Reilly on how to spice up the hol­i­day sea­son with that spe­cial some­one.

Grant van Gameren gets into the fes­tive spirit in our Taste Test col­umn where he teams up with Del­ica Kitchen owner Devin O’Con­nell to test the best ginger­bread cook­ies in town. And Joanne Kates reviews two hot new restau­rants, Buca Osteria and Nodo. Caro­line Ak­sich checks out four unique and de­li­cious takes on hot choco­late.

In the arts, we pro­file an in­cred­i­bly tal­ented and pow­er­ful new mu­si­cian named Low­ell. Mark Bres­lin checks out a new book from An­drew Dice Clay and re­counts his own brush with the con­tro­ver­sial comic.

We also chat with crime fic­tion au­thor ex­traor­di­naire Peter Robin­son and of­fer up a few gift sug­ges­tions for the mu­sic and book lovers in your life

To close another year at Post City Mag­a­zines, we fea­ture our an­nual Naughty and Nice list where we rec­og­nize a few of the fine lo­cal res­i­dents that have made us proud in 2014 and a few oth­ers that we’d rather for­get.

Happy hol­i­days to all of our in­cred­i­ble read­ers. See you next year.
