    Volunteer Oppurtunities?

    Ed007Toronto, I had sent an email to you regarding this, and I'm not sure if you have received it or not.

    Volunteer Oppurtunities?

    So, I am finally graduating, but I have very little job experience. I'll probably go back to college for a post-grad, but this summer I need some entry-level experience. I figure the only way to do that would be to gain some valuable volunteer experience. Any suggestions for places that...

    Toronto Sun Comments

    It doesn't bother me that much. The Sun appeals to the lowest common demoninator. The white trash demographic. These people making these comments don't strike me as very influential people. Now imagine living in the U.S. where Fox News is the highest rated news network, and is voted as the most...

    What To Do In Chicago?

    So I'm going to Chicago for a few days with my family, and I am trying to think of things to do. I've got all the touristy stuff included like Millenium Park, Navy Pier and maybe a river tour. But I'm getting nervous now because Chicago does not seem like it has that many cool neighbourhoods...

    Urban Planning Firms?

    I stumbled upon a Toronto-based firm called Urban Strategies: http://jump.dexigner.com/directory/4143 They say they offer experience to urban planning students as well.

    How to Become An Urban Planner?

    That seems soo complicated to me. So even if a person graduates with an undergraduate or a master's degree in planning, they still require experience in order to be accredited by the Canadian Institute of Planners? What benefit does this CIP certification have on one's career path and what...

    How to Become An Urban Planner?

    I thought in order to become a planner you had to pass a test? I didn't know a Master's was required to be certified. I guess I won't be going places with my measly Geography degree. I would like to be a double major, and I am two courses short of a Geography degree, and I'm assessing whether...

    How to Become An Urban Planner?

    So I'm rather torn about whether or not to pursue a Geography major. I might have to do two extra courses. But it is not an undergraduate in Urban Planning, but Geography. With that being said, I have a few questions: 1) Will a geography major be of any use in seeking an ubran planning...

    Where Should I Apply For a Job?

    Yeah, I applied for a few jobs on that website, but it's incredibly difficult to actually get those. They don't even pay very well, but the experience is probably worth it.

    Where Should I Apply For a Job?

    I'm in University and for the summer I would love a job that offers real experience in planning or even something more corporate than a typical student summer job. I take Communication Studies and Geography at McMaster and I was wondering where would be a good place to apply? I've applied to...

    A Walk Around South Rosedale

    I've always wondered. How does a neighbourhood that looks so suburban and low density exist right next to the intersection of Yonge and Bloor? It always boggled me. Won't the land in Rosedale become so valuable as the density and population increases downtown? Will the neighbourhood remain the...

    A Walk Around South Rosedale

    Anyone know how much this house sold for? And can anyone tell me if the image in #43 and #44 is a pool or an unnecessary fountain? http://www.elisekalles.com/listings/1611/gallery

    Greater Toronto's Sprawl

    Is sprawl in Toronto comparable to American cities? It seems Mississauga is compact sprawl, whereas Northeastern cities like Boston and New York have sprawling estates on the edges of the periphery.

    How to Make Friends In Toronto?

    The problem is it's hard to know what places to hit up and which ones aren't my scene. And I really hate to sound cheap, but that sort of lifestyle is so expensive. Where do young, student types hang out in Toronto?

    How to Make Friends In Toronto?

    Maybe I could take up clubbing or bar hopping? I'm sure if I go to enough places, I could meet some cool people. I'd like to make friends my own age, like maybe with U of T or Ryerson students.

    How to Make Friends In Toronto?

    It's really strange, a lot of people from Hamilton hate Toronto. They think it's dangerous and crowded. Mind you, these are the people who live on the mountain or in Ancaster and don't realize how awful Hamilton really is. I ask this question because a lot of people make the move to Toronto...

    How to Make Friends In Toronto?

    I actually go to McMaster and I don't know what it is, but it seems like everyone already knows each other, leaving little oppurtunity to meet new people. Besides, I'm eventually going to graduate, so I find it important to meet friends in Mississauga or Toronto because that is my home.

    How to Make Friends In Toronto?

    I live in Mississauga (sometimes Hamilton) and it's kinda hard to make close friends. What sort of things do I need to do around the Toronto area that could result in more friends? I'm 20 years old, so I'd prefer to make friends with my age group.

    A theory about Rob Ford's support base

    Yes, I'm sure that there are religious individuals who are progressive. But generally speaking, especially in the US, religion is used as a valid argument. Whether it's to promote abstinense instead of safe sex and individual choice. Whether it's to oppose gay marriage which has proven to be a...

    A theory about Rob Ford's support base

    Firstly, there is no bigotry in stating facts. Middle Eastern and Indian cultures tend to discriminate against gays. This is not racist or prejudicial, this is a true statement. Again, this is what previous posters mean when they say that being critical of a religion or culture that...
