Ontario Liberal press officers can’t stop partying. At this point, @LibPressSec could easily be mistaken for a parody account, given its use of a Doug Ford meme inspired by “Is This a Pigeon?," and its decision to share a Toronto Sun assault on Andrea Horwath’s clothing costs. Meanwhile, the premier herself is going for smugly sarcastic contrition:

“Horwath’s hands full with poppy hating, 9/11 denying, Hitler meme posting and female oil wrestling dream team.” The Toronto Sun's attack on the NDP is now officially a three-ring circus.

Front-row seats to rejection for the Blue Jays. Love died within earshot of some Toronto pitchers on Friday night in Philadelphia, where the players couldn't avoid hearing a breakup in the stands. “Lovely entertainment for a few minutes, but we hope you’re ok," tweeted John Axford. "Feel free to come back tomorrow and discuss with us. We can provide the third party point of view.” Alas, the follow-up counselling had to be digitally dispensed:

Cadence Weapon is here to be the Jane Jacobs of hip-hop. Edmonton’s former poet laureate Rollie Pemberton, who moved from Montreal to Toronto in 2015 and couldn’t easily find a desirable downtown rental, has a track written from the perspective of a real estate agent with no concern for community:
