Toronto rental supply jumps after Airbnb, short-term rental market plunges: experts

Joel McHale on ‘Becky’, ‘Tiger King’ backlash and ‘Community’ movie

Funnyman Joel McHale wants to make one thing clear: He isn’t abandoning comedy.

Hopefully, I get to do more of that in the future.”In Becky, which is available now on VOD, McHale,...

COVID-19 pandemic puts a silver lining on Father’s Day this year

It’s Father’s Day, a brave new day in a brave new world we are all currently living in. The COVID-19 pandemic has certainly shaken up the status quo, and dads everywhere are in the midst of celebrating what many perceive a new type of Renaissance as the roles they play in their family’s lives today are certainly different from what they were several years ago – in some instances, several months ago. Interesting to note Father’s Day also falls on the last day of Canadian Men’s Health Week, and several recent studys done in conjunction with the Canadian Men’s Health Foundation (CMHF) reveals...

Firestone recalls the firestorm leading to NHL draft lottery

Looking way back to his controversial contribution to the beginnings of the NHL draft lottery, original Ottawa Senators owner and co-founder Bruce Firestone insists he did nothing worse than think out loud.He is, however, colourful and candid in remembering the conversations that took place at the end of the Senators expansion season of 1992-93, in the quest to secure Alexandre Daigle with the first overall draft selection.Let’s rehash the history, going back to when there was no draft lottery.

It’s too early to be making selections for NHL awards

The NHL season is set to resume sometime next month or in early August. And when it does, I’ll have a vested interest in who advances past the round of 24.I’m cheering for Edmonton to beat Chicago, and for Vancouver to beat Minnesota. I want Winnipeg to advance past Calgary in their play-in series, or at the very least for it to be a low-scoring affair. It would also help if Nashville were to win against Arizona and for the Rangers to lose to Carolina.This isn’t about Canadian pride. This is about me not looking like a fool.On Monday, I submitted my ballot for the NHL awards. This was the...

A decision on the two sites for the 24-team playoff tournament is expected in a few days.On Friday, the feds confirmed their order in council which would allow American players and teams a...
