There’s no column, in fact, from anyone. I think we are running a page of terrific editorial cartoons instead.
So, I just wanted to wish a Merry Christmas to all six of my regular readers. You are terrific, and you help make this website much more interesting than I could ever make it on my own.
I’ve talked to my kids, this morning, about the close to one million people in Toronto who are now on day three without power, without water, and potentially without food. If anyone can tell me who is coordinating efforts to help the elderly and the infirm in some of those cold high-rises in Scarborough, I would greatly appreciate it. My sons and daughter and I want to help them out if we can. Please leave whatever information you can in comments about who is coordinating help for those people.
In the meantime, here’s a snap daughter and I took while trying to get around yesterday. With most of the traffic lights down on this side of Toronto, it was hard to do. The trees are pretty but also sad. Christmas 2013 will be one to remember.
UPDATE: Son Two and Three help me deliver food and coffee and clothing to the warming center located at 2231 Lawrence Ave. If you are in the neighborhood, and want to help out, that’s one place where you can go.
