HELP PLS #toronto Twitter.

Is there ANYWHERE in central Toronto that can DEFFO replace my Google Pixel 6 Pro screen today?!

Nobody in Eaton Centre has parts. I can't ring places to check if they HAVE parts.

I can't spend my holiday going to random phone shops in vain hope. 😭
Only way I can get online is by going back to my hotel and getting on the wifi with my laptop.

I can't be back-and-forthing to random parts of the city all day to phone shops I've found online, being told nobody has the screen part. I want to go to museums and art galleries 😭
Hell, if I have to drop $200 on an unlocked burner until I can get back to the UK because nobody in Toronto can get the part, then that's fine. I'll do it. It's worth it so I can get back to doing what I came here for (woo museums).

But I at least need/want to know that now.

At the close in #Toronto, the S&P/#TSX Composite Index was at 20,206.41 points, up 0.53% today, as dip buyers helped Canadian equities rebounded from last week’s selloff. The TSX was also supported by broad-based gains in commodities, towards which the index is weighted.
The energy sector was buoyed by crude prices, which is being supported by the likely enactment of a ban on Russian oil, from which Canadian producers are expected to benefit. China is also beginning to lift lockdowns, including in Shangai, easing concerns on the demand side.
The heavyweight materials sector also helped lift the TSX, buoyed by industrial metals, which are also likely to see demand rebound as China begins to ease back on Covid-19 restrictions.

We've seen the polls. Remember, those are almost always *province wide* polls.

We don't need to win province wide; we just need to win our ridings. And to do that, all we need to do is #UniteTheVote

But that means getting organized. Here's a thread🧵 of ways you can help:
First and foremost, if you're in #Toronto, you can pledge to #UniteTheVote behind the candidate best positioned to beat Ford's Conservatives in your riding.

Big reason for @notoneseat for #DougFord in #Toronto:

❌ used the Notwithstanding clause to screw city council

❌ and against free speech (see reply to this tweet for link)…

#DougFord used the dreaded notwithstanding clause to overrule the court and pass his undemocratic legislation limiting 3rd party advertising, i.e., free speech…

These are the scenes that break my heart. Yesterday this knapsack, full of life's essentials, was left under this tree. Today, no one has claimed it, it has been gone through through and half of it dumped out. What happened to this person? Where are they? 💔 #toronto
I worry so much about ppl making the transition from housing to homelessness. esp #pwd. it is one of the biggest shocks and most difficult things anyone will endure in life. there's no manual "so, now you're homeless!" there is little to no support.
you're making a difficult adjustment in every way but most importantly psychologically. community is most important at this time but when do you go? especially with the embarrassment and shame and sense of failure that can accompany. our egos can be cruellest at these moments.

Rich immigrants who moved to #Vancouver through Quebec's back-door investor program now own, on avg, $4.6m worth of housing. But they're only paying taxes on annual incomes of a paltry $100k. A gov.-enabled scam. Via @GoldinYVR, #vanre #vanpoli #cdnpoli…
2/ @Ayan604 says the system is failing new immigrants who’ve arrived to work and settle, if it also allows new immigrants who are here (simply) because they are wealthy and have an appetite for real estate investment. #vanre #torontorealestate #onpoli #Cdnimm #bcpoli #vanpoli

dumping fuel from the wings though,which I've never experienced in 20 years of traveling.I teared like a baby and so as the mother near me-cried a river.Passengers took videos of the fuel dumping.Good job @GretaThunberg. Lets dump over North Bay and breathe it with #COVID19
North Bay-hazardous waste out of #Ontario landfills and waterways,which I later learned.

I’m 17 and I’ve lived in #Toronto my whole life. My peers and I already know that we’ll never be able to afford a home in our city.

Entire generations are being priced out of Toronto. The #HousingCrisis is a massive problem that’s been overlooked for far too long.

A thread:
We know the main cause of Toronto’s #HousingCrisis: our population is growing faster than our supply of housing units.

We also know the solution to this problem:

🚨build more housing in Toronto🚨

This is the best, most environmentally friendly way to bring down housing prices.
Some specific reforms we need:

- End exclusionary zoning that permits nothing but single family homes in 75% of #Toronto

- High density zoning near transit

- Legalize multi-tenant housing citywide

- More investment in affordable housing (especially at the provincial level)

1/🧵Here is what a meltdown looks like:

#Ottawa has lost control”

“Ottawa needs to be rescued”

“This isn’t Jan 6th per se”

#Canada doesn't have effective control over its capital”

“What’s happening right now in Ottawa is absolutely catastrophic”

1/15. The #TorontoConvoy is now reduced to handful of ppl thanks to authorities moving out the trucks and crowds a few hours ago.

I spent the better part of the afternoon here.

Some observations. 👇🧵
2/15. Lets start with the ugliedt one.

I chatted with Greg here from New Brunswick, who carried around what was by far the most antisemitic signage of the day.

He said he's just sharing the truth (that Jews are behind COVID etc).
3/15. Greg doesnt represent everyone at the #TorontoConvoy, but as we spoke, a semi circle of nodding audience members formed behind me.

And every time I passed him later, he'd be talking enthusiastically with another person there. I didn't see anyone contradict him.

I decided to take the first @GOtransit train from #ldnont into #Toronto today. Here’s how the adventure went.
I arrived at the station 15 minutes early. The train was already sitting at the station. The media was there to see off the first train along with maybe 2 dozen riders.
First observation, no Presto machines. I guess since it’s only a pilot those won’t be going in at this time, need to purchase your ticket online.

"All my friends are dying.",
I realized as I lay on the floor contemplating how to live to 100.

I am dramatic
and obsessed with longevity.
Dramatically obsessed with #healthspan
not #lifespan.

I'm on a quest to live well for a century.

Here's the problem:
The problem:
I have no idea what health actually means.

Do we eat meat or not?
Does dairy actually cause cancer?
What about mercury in fish?
Is coffee good or bad?

There's too much conflicting information,
too many buzzwords
and @instagram was making it worse.

Frustrated, I decided to look at the places where people DID live to 100.
At least I could begin there. These places are called @BlueZones.

Dan Buettner's work studies the world's longest-lived populations and finds best practices.

Turns out, there are only 5 blue zones:

So I decided to shake things up and I'm here at Dundas Square where a few demonstrators have arrived. Rally is supposed to kick off at 12 but there's far fewer demonstrators here compared to the crowd at Queen's Park

#cdnpoli #Toronto #onpoli #antivaxxers
People are still coming in as the merch booths are being set up

#cdnpoli #Toronto #onpoli #antivaxxers
Just past noon and the size of the crowd sits somewhere between 100-120 last count. No sign of Chris Sky just yet.
