The Star reports that store owners near The Other Danforth - the strip around Greenwood Avenue - are hoping that Tim Hortons can breath some life into their neighbourhood.

The National Post weighs in on why the Toronto condo market just won't quit. The Globe and Mail wonders if the next condo boom will be in Oakville or Burlington. But be forewarned: the Globe does recognize that units priced at approx. $950,000 to $2,600,000 in rather well-heeled Oakville are "out of reach for most first-time buyers."
