Ripped from the headlines this glorious Thursday: Smitherman comes up huge with seniors, Ford gets angry, and the Imagine Concert is no more

There’s really nothing like the continent’s largest phallus to get your patriotic blood pumping. This coming Monday, City Hall’s executive committee will vote on whether to erect North America’s tallest flagpole in Emery Village at Finch Avenue West, just west of Highway 400. If erected, our 125-metre flagpole will exceed the paltry current North American leader—a 113-metre pole in Iguala, Mexico—by twelve metres. We know what you’re thinking, and this is totally not about that Dubai monstrosity besting our CN Tower. Honest.
