Just when you thought your morning commute couldn't get any worse: talks between GO Transit bus drivers and Metrolinx are slowly moving forward. How fitting.

Indie music fans rejoice! The Polaris Music Prize for best Canadian album will be announced tonight, pitting heavyweights like Arcade Fire against newbie's like Austra.

That's a wrap! Arab films dominate as TIFF comes to a close. A film based in Lebanon, called Where do we go now?, has taken TIFF's fan choice award.

City Hall could be in for another record-setting meeting today, with more than 300 deputants registered to speak on proposed cuts ranging from less frequent snow removal to selling off the Toronto Centre for the Arts.
