Police seeking help in motorbike fatality

The police are asking for witnesses to the fatal motorcycle accident that happened at Weston and Lawrence on Saturday, September 18.

They say that a 49-year-old man was riding southbound on Weston when he was killed by a northbound van turning left onto Lawrence.

“Police are asking local residents, businesses and drivers, who may have security or dash camera footage of the area or incident, to contact investigators.”

Hussen wins

Ahmed Hussen, the Liberal incumbent, cruised to an easy victory last night in the federal election. He received more votes than the rest of the candidates combined.

As always, voters were swayed by party leadership and national trends. The Conservative candidate, Sajanth Mohan, received more votes than the NDP candidate, Hawa Mire. I hadn’t heard of Mohan before the election (and didn’t see him during it), while Mire had built a campaign for months before the writ.

The PPC candidate received 5% of the vote, in line with national numbers. Nicki Ward, the Green candidate, came in last, with 2%.

ShowLove TO in Mount Dennis

Culinarium in Mount Dennis is going to be part of the ShowLoveTO DineTOgether program.

I haven’t yet been to Culinarium, but it looks super—and the DineTOgether program sounds like a great reason to go. For $30 a person, they’ll be serving a two-course, super-sounding Italian dinner of appetizers or deserts and a main—ossobuco (veal shank), cioppino (seafood stew), or eggplant parmigiana.
