Town of Rich­mond Hill THE GOOD: coun­cil­lors got a close shave Feb. 5, but it was for a good cause. The town’s mayor and sev­eral of its coun­cil­lors got buzzed in front of a crowd at Hill­crest Mall to sup­port World Can­cer Day. Do­na­tions were taken through #NoHairSelf­ie and ended up more than dou­bling the fundrais­ing goal of $2,500. It was ex­tra spe­cial for Coun­cil be­cause one of their own, Deputy Mayor Vito Spatafora, is cur­rently in treat­ment. The pro­ceed­ings saw coun­cil­lor Tom Muench and oth­ers get their heads shaved be­fore on­look­ers.

THE BAD: There will be no dream home for one win­ner of the Princess Mar­garet Can­cer Cen­tre Home Lot­tery this year. One of the prize homes, lo­cated in Markham, was yanked be­cause of mar­i­juana fumes. Ap­par­ently, a res­i­dent in a nearby home has a li­cence from Health Canada to legally grow pot for their own use. The ac­com­pa­ny­ing aro­mas have a habit of waft­ing on to the lot­tery house’s grounds. This will mean a win­ning ticket that doesn’t get new digs, but don’t de­spair for them be­cause they still stand to get over $1.3 mil­lion in cash.

Shel­don THE BIZARRE: Berg­son, a Thorn­hill man, changed his name to Above Z none of the and made it to the bal­lot in the Whit by-Oshawa pro­vin­cial by­elec­tion with nine other can­di­dates. Z none of the (now his le­gal last name) has run for of­fice in Thorn­hill pre­vi­ously and did the re­quired work of round­ing up 25 voter sig­na­tures be­fore reg­is­ter­ing as a can­di­date. And in case you were won­der­ing, adding the “Z” was so he could ap­pear last on the bal­lot below None of the Above Party can­di­date Ge­orge Vez­ina, an­other op­tion for re­cal­ci­trant vot­ers.
