Torontonians are bracing themselves for a stinking hot summer strike after talks with the city ended at a standstill and thousands of city workers walked off the job late last night.
The city got a taste of summer heat yesterday, and it's expected to continue throughout the week, with temperatures and humidity that would make impending piles of uncollected garbage all the more noxious.
Closed public pools and lack of ferry service for non-island residents will leave Torontonians with fewer options when it comes to cooling off. But shuttered city daycares are forcing parents of more than 2,000 children to rethink childcare plans.
Well if you think you can drink your sorrows away...maybe not. If the LCBO and its workers cannot reach an agreement by 12:01 a. m. on Wednesday, roughly 7,200 unionized employees will go on strike. The city will really get dry.
