Today in Toronto: Dave Young Octet, Canadian International Autoshow and more

Canadian International Autoshow Every year the country’s top car show draws over 300,000 aspiring Jay Lenos looking to salivate over thousands of models. There are vintage Triumphs for those who want auto eye candy and a sea of energy-efficient hybrids for more earnest types. It’s just like heaven, only with GPS and supple leather seats.

Beckett: Feck It! Jennifer Tarver—the director behind the acclaimed Stratford production of Krapp’s Last Tape in 2008—looks to Samuel Beckett’s short plays for further inspiration. The Dublin writer has also long served as fodder for classically minded musicians. This production showcases accompanying tunes from a cabal of them—all Irish, all lovers of the absurd.

Ron James James’s pronounced hoser lilt makes Bob and Doug McKenzie look like sophisticated urbanites, and his humour is so folksy that even your dad groans. But James is a comedic road warrior, and he’s out there doing what he does best after wrapping the third season of his CBC sketch and stand-up show, offering homespun reflections on his childhood in the Maritimes, his hatred of new technology and his obsessive fealty to Tim Hortons.

WHO IS SHELLEY CARROL ?
Shelley Carroll is the councillor for Ward 33 Don Valley East.
Voters in Shelley’s ward gave Mayor Ford a majority.
When Shelley Carroll was elected along with Mayor Robert Ford I assumed that she would be more positive in her support for Mayor Ford initiatives!
I am sure Shelley Carroll knows that it is absolutely dumb when you go against the will of the people?
I would appreciate more overt actions by Shelly Carroll in showing support for Major Robert Ford initiatives. (NOT ROAD BLOCKS)
I expect Shelly Carroll to support the will of the voters in her district?
Sabotaging Subway Development
I am disappointed in Councillor Shelley Carol. Ward 33 Don Valley East
She is trying to carry on the Mayor Miller legacy of street car tracks.
Councillor Shelley keeps trying to tell her voters that they want street car tracks.
Councillor Shelly needs to respect what the voters are asking for. The voters want subways.
She probably does not like Mayor Ford but that is not a reason for not giving the voters what they want.
I believe the voter’s would rather have detected bus lanes if they cannot have subways.
Councillor Shelley did a lot of good work in her district, but she will be remembered for sabotaging subway development?
Subways are a high profile item for voters. If Councillor Shelley plans to continue on in her political career she will be remembered for not respecting voters’ wishes and a person that helped sabotage subway development.
