It doesn’t matter that Rob Ford is now powerless, because he has this replica of a Canadian football trophy in his hands. Give him a Grey Cup, and he’ll forget that he’s even embattled.

Yes, this is a such thing. Here is a graphic of bigfoot sightings in North America - both the United States and Canada - from 1921 to 2012. Josh Stevens, Penn State PhD candidate, mapped out 3,313 recorded sightings in the last 92 years. Stevens states, “These are sasquatch sightings we’re talking about and I’m way out of my area of expertise (do bigfoot experts exist?). But it’s clear that if the legendary biped is real, it’s thriving out west.”  This is wicked cool.

Meet Canadian businessman Mike Hallatt. He’s a big Trader Joe’s fan, even though the company doesn’t have any Canadian locations. He’s such a big fan of the store, in fact, that he regularly goes across the border, buys a ton of Trader Joe’s products, comes back, and stocks the shelves of his own Vancouver store, which he calls “Pirate Joe’s.” Really. Of course he’s getting sued.

Record-breaking Toronto storm drops 126mm of rain, causing blackouts, flooding and transit chaos
Monday evening’s record-breaking rainfall continues to wreak havoc on Toronto’s morning commute with subway and GO train delays, road closures, and power outages in the west end of the city Tuesday.

By midnight Pearson airport had officially seen 126 mm, a single-day record for Toronto. The previous single-day record for rainfall was set at 121.4 mm in 1954. The average rainfall for the entire month of July in Toronto is only 74 mm.

“We had 90 millimetres of rain within an hour and a half at the airport,” said Peter Kimbell, a meteorologist at Environment Canada, who said the storm ranked among the most intense rainfalls the city has ever seen.

Some 70,000 have been left without power since the deluge hit, with Mayor Rob Ford urging reduced electricity consumption, saying Toronto’s hydroelectric system is “hanging on by a thread right now.”
