There's a lot going on in Toronto and it can be hard to keep up. Today in TO is Toronto's news podcast. Every Wednesday, host, Dani Stover, brings you inside the biggest stories in the city and helps connect the dots on what's really going on and how we got here. If it matters to the GTA, you'll hear all about it on Today in TO -- from the people who make Toronto the amazing place it is.
On this episode, host Dani Stover breaks down why the Eglinton LRT is delayed again, and what it has to do with a lawsuit from the company building the line. And have you ever struggled to find parking in Toronto? You're far from alone, but if we do get more parking spaces, will that mean we have to sacrifice green space? Or maybe we should sacrifice ugly parking lots for beautiful parks like the Village of Yorkville Park. Listen in and learn about what's happening Today in TO.
Host Dani Stover speaks with Toronto improv resident and star of "Whose Line Is It Anyways" Colin Mochrie! Colin and Dani talk about the love of improv, what projects Colin is working on and what it has to do with hypnotism. And Toronto city council has FINALLY voted in favour to allow drinking in public parks...but not completely. Dani Stover helps to break down when and where you can go, unwind and enjoy an alcoholic beverage in a public park.
As we draw ever closer to the election for Toronto's top job, Host Dani Stover sits down to speak with mayoral candidate Chloe Brown. Chloe tells Dani why her mother is such an inspiration to her career, why she believes the city is far from broke, and how she would act to improve public safety in Toronto.
Host Dani Stover has a conversation with musician, author, comedian, actor and all-around amazing human being Nick Offerman! They talk about his critically acclaimed episode of "The Last of Us", Gordon Lightfoot and even Earthworm Jim. And the TTC has shut down a major intersection in the downtown core to start on the Ontario Line, all while more and more people express their frustration with Metrolinx for not completing the Eglinton LRT. Dani breaks down the new developments with the Ontario Line, why the LRT has been delayed...again and what it means for Toronto.
We have more information on the ever-elusive Ontario Place redevelopment plan...and it includes a European company getting a 95-year lease on Ontario land! And the Science Centre is moving to make room for affordable housing, but nothing can be built in the ravine. But we do have an abundance of "Yellowbelt" land, and if we changed a few simple rules we can get to building! Listen along with host Dani Stover as she breaks down recent developments with the Ontario Place/Science Centre switcharoo, and what needs to change for more housing to be built on the Yellowbelt.
There are now 48 people running for mayor of Toronto and some of them don't seem to have their plans set just yet. Candidates like Mark Saunders, who has plenty of ambitious plans but can't explain how he would enact them. And Toronto has a housing and skilled labour shortage that is only getting worse. And more people are experiencing poverty due to still high cost of living. But one company is trying to address all these issues at once. Listen in as host Dani Stover dives into new platforms and announcements from the mayoral candidates, and also explains what Blue Door is and what it's doing to help make Toronto a better place.
After Ontario Place shut down, its grounds have been left semi-vacant since. The province wants to build a spa and Toronto mayoral candidates all promise to do something else with it. Dani Stover breaks down the issue at large, whos promising what, and if any have Toronto's best interest in mind.
As the wave of violence on the TTC continues, the cries for cell service on the TTC grow louder.

After 16-year-old Gabrial Mageles was killed in yet another act of random violence on the TTC, people are demanding something be done to increase safety. And mayoral candidates, MPPs and even the Premier have come forward with ideas, but do they actually address the root issue? And now that we are out of the pandemic, the province is planning to eliminate a much-needed program as well as heavily reduce incentives for seniors. Follow along with host Dani Stover as she dives into what happened at Keele Station, why bail reform is part of the conversation, and why the province may need to start investing more in its most vulnerable citizens with healthcare and housing.
Only a few highways can get you into Toronto, and only the Gardiner gets you right to the core. Since it's so important, is it fair that Toronto foots the costly bill or should the province help out? And as the mayoral race draws closer, more candidates have thrown their hats in the ring. Dani Stover not only helps break down some of the new candidates, what some of them have planned for the Gardiner Expressway, and why it can make for an interesting election run for the city.
Toronto is stuck in a weird phase of awkward growth as we're still waiting to find out who will be our next mayor, let alone all the new condos going up and plans for expansion in-store. Follow along with Dani Stover as she explores the fears of residents in Corktown, and why one mayoral candidate is pushing for free public transit. And stories of real estate scams have become more common in the past few months. Dani Stover dives into how people's houses are being sold illegally from right under their noses...and who could be responsible.
The city is building thousands of new homes, and that means some older ones will have to be demolished. But could it be done sustainably while making a profit? Dani Stover speaks with Meredith Moore, the founder of Ouroboros Deconstruction about how demolition can be done sustainably, and what "deconstruction" is. And have you ever wondered why we have nicknames for our political parties? Dani Stover and Sabrina Nanji, a journalist and founder of Queen's Park Observer about why we call our Liberals "Grits", and Conservatives "Tories"
After Tory's abrupt departure, more possible candidates come to light every day. Host Dani Stover highlights some of the big names being tossed around and what's next for Toronto. And as thousands of homes start going up, QAnon has somehow become entangled in a convenient neighbourhood layout. Dani helps define what 15-minute cities are, and why QAnon is involved.
On this episode of Today in TO, host Dani Stover takes a look at some big changes the city has recently gone through, and some that are still to come.

Dani Stover takes a look back at the former Mayor's tenure, why he left office and what's next for TO. And the city has plans to make some major changes to Hanlan's Point. But some groups said the city left them out of the discussion, and fear they will be excluded. Dani speaks with Daniel Fusca, the manager of Toronto's Parks, Forestry and Recreation Public Engagement Team about why the City decided to take a step back and revisit the issue, what the proposed changes would be, and what's going to happen to TO's only nude beach.
