Toronto is on a roll when it comes to car show in 2016. First off, the Canadian International Autoshow kicked off the year with the best show they have ever offered and it showed in the visitor counts.

Roughly 2,500 taxi drivers in Toronto are planning a strike next weekend, similar to the one they organized in December. In that action, cabbies brought the downtown area surrounding the Queen and Bay intersections, to a standstill for the better part of the day. The challenge this time is that next weekend Toronto plays host […]
