The truth is in the window. If the news media is too fixated on President Trump's lies to call out Justin Trudeau for abandoning his own electoral-reform pledge, it’s up to the Bloordale storefront next door to MP Julie Dzerowicz to publicize what happened:

“I’d like to welcome Kevin to the Conservative party and I'd like to welcome him back to Canada.” Kellie Leitch got in the big dig during Saturday's Conservative leadership debate, which eventually became a roast of Kevin O’Leary. Even O'Leary's former employer, CBC News Network, seemed in on it: the broadcaster cut him off as he was ranting about the prime minister. But a fusillade of zingers about O'Leary being a would-be “celebrity-in-chief” who “thinks he’s Rambo” make the race look more like his to lose.

Preszler Law Firm’s sage spokesman is no lawyer. John Fraser has a high school named after him in Peel Region, because he was an educator before he retired and began acting. (His biggest screen role to date was a tiny one in Good Will Hunting.) His current elder spokesman ubiquity as the face of Preszler Law made him a target for the Toronto Star’s series into the shady practices of personal injury firms. As with past target Diamond & Diamond, the probing evidently convinced the firm to start showing off everyone else who works there:

The post-simsub Super Bowl created new kinds of confusion. The CRTC’s Twitter account was busy last night, initially with inquiries about why Canadian commercials were still running on the Fox pre-game feed. But then a new wave of complaints came in from CTV viewers confused about why Bell's network wasn't showing the U.S. spots. The uproar was followed by another wave of confusion when Fox Buffalo aired a spot for Pizza Pizza.

Honest Ed’s lightbulbs may end up in some garbage bags on the curb. Mirvish Village's architecture could be saved, but the buildup to Honest Ed’s last hurrah in late February includes confirmation that the store's sign and its 23,000 incandescent lights are officially destined for scrap:

The case for the original Windsor Salt box. A recent lame makeover added a silver wave to the logo and reduced the box's dots to one line and one colour in order to make room for images of food. While the Globe and Mail was previously obsessed with telling readers to stay away from sodium, the package's vintage look earned this salty salute:

Vice-related judgments due in two hemispheres. This morning, the Ontario Court of Appeal was asked to throw out a ruling that requires Vice reporter Ben Makuch to hand over logs of his chats with an alleged ISIS fighter. Meanwhile, in Australia, the imminent sentencing of Jordan Gardner—the musician allegedly recruited as a drug mule by former music editor Slava Pastuk—will go ahead after the judge takes delivery of a petition asking him to show some mercy.

Word of the moment


Toronto medics reportedly responded to a call from someone with one attached to their ear.
