Finally, change we can believe in. City council has officially rolled back the time at which people can start drinking by one hour for the duration of the World Cup. From June 11 to July 11, Torontonians can toast their favourite footie teams at 10 a.m. instead of 11 a.m.

The early drinking doesn’t start for a month, which means that, so far, the best thing about the news is this line from the Toronto Star: “Council voted overwhelmingly for the extra hour of drinking time.” Taken out of context, it almost sounds as though we’re being led by a group of tipsy college kids who don’t know the difference between “yes” and “no.”
