What To Do when Visiting the Toronto Christmas Market

We decided to venture out into the city on a balmy late fall night last week to check out the much hyped about Toronto Christmas Market. We’d seen the pictures, heard the stories and we were pumped to see what all the hoopla was about. Needless to say, it being an unseasonal warm night, a few hundred others had the exact same thought and we found ourselves amongst a massive crowd of Christmas revellers. As first-timers, there...

Andrés Cepeda “Mil Ciudades” Tour in Toronto

Where to start, where to start…For those of us who have been attending Latin artists concerts for a number of years now the mere fact that the artist actually made it to our city could be considered a smashing success.

Let That One Sink In, Canada. And Get Ready

What can I say: I called it. It may be my lifetime exposure to dictatorships. It may be my gradual and irreversible loss of faith in humanity that has made me become so jaded. It may be that I have paid too much attention to the lessons history has thrown at us. And even though I did predict it, it still hit like a bucket of very Canadian ice wintery cold water. Let that one sink in, Canada (and the rest of the world): Donald Trump is...
