“Nasty women” might be Broads – and not know it

Here’s a thought: Let’s take a break from Donald Trump’s hideous misogyny and the notion that women must conform to one specific shape and size. Instead, let’s talk about the celebration of the female form taking place at Broad. The warm and unpretentious Danforth East shop, owned by the lovely Sam Conover, specializes in bras for women with fuller busts.

Sam, you might say, is on a mission to educate women about buying the right bra, thereby feeling better about our bodies. Currently she is running a promotion called The Broad Body Project, or #whatabroadlookslike. Read more ›

Come celebrate our beautiful Coxwell Laneway Mural


The Coxwell Laneway is LOVELY!

Now that’s a sentence I never thought I’d write, after 25+ years of taking the pathway that leads from the Green P Lot on the Danforth to Coxwell Station.

For the last few decades at least, it’s been dingy, unwelcoming, functional. It had one purpose – to provide a shortcut to the station – and that is all it did.

Today the Laneway is a joyous and colourful focal point, thanks to the creative magic of talented artists (lead by Cristina Delago) and local volunteers. Work on this StreetARToronto initiative took place late in the summer and Wednesday evening the mural will have its official unveiling. Artists will be on hand, as well as City Councillors Janet Davis and Josh Cole, who is also TTC chair.

Everyone is invited to join them and celebrate this new beautiful public space.
