Last week, the City of Toronto announced that anyone over the age of 18 living in a Toronto COVID-19 hot spot would be able to get their vaccine at a participating 18+ pop-up vaccine clinic.

A tweet from Toronto Public Health states that the partners working alongside the city to facilitate these clinics are not widely advertising their locations. Instead, they are promoting them to the communities they intend to serve.
"Our partners intentionally promote these location-specific mobile clinics to the [..] communities that the clinic is meant to serve," explained Toronto's fire chief and general manager of the Office of Emergency Management, Matthew Pegg, during the city's press briefing Monday afternoon, "Generally speaking, pop-up and mobile clinics are brought to the attention of eligible clients directly by primary care physicians, employers, building managers, faith leaders, and other local leaders [..]"*
While these establishments are no longer there, one building has remained for over 200 years and with it a mystery that goes back just as long.
In 1815, only several years after its construction, the Gibraltar Point Lighthouse saw the disappearance and rumoured murder of its first keeper, J.P. Radan Muller, a disappearance that remains a mystery to this day.
Officers with the Toronto Police Service basically stumbled upon a mini-IKEA after finding a shipping container filled with more than $120,000 worth of allegedly stolen office and home furniture.
Two Mississauga men have been charged in the incident, which started when a shipping container was stolen from the Jane and Finch area on Thursday, May 13.
According to a statement from TPS, officers found the container at a warehouse just a seven-minute drive away from where the theft took place, recovering a staggering amount of furniture.
Police say they found 193 boxes of office furniture, 97 pieces of home furnishings, 51 boxes of home reno equipment and cabinetry and 10 boxes of bathroom reno merchandise.
