I think it's safe to say that the results of the 2016 presidential election didn't exactly sit right with a lot of people, myself included. In reaction to this, women (and men) all around the world took a stand this past weekend to have their voices heard. And I'm very proud to say that 50,000 of those people were Torontonians.
It's been made very clear that Toronto will be a huge support system for women all around the world, and I am so proud to be part of a community with such caring, loving, and strong feminist figures, whether they be male or female.
For those of you who did not attend the march, I have compiled a list of 23 of the most badass signs to get you inspired on this Monday morning, enjoy!
As COVID-19 cases continue to drop, one of the province's top doctors has revealed that Ontario's reopening plan is on the way.
According to CP24, Christine Elliott, minister of health, told reporters on Tuesday that the plan will be coming "very soon."
"We have been working with the chief medical officer of health and the medical experts on a safe and careful reopening of Ontario because the last thing we want is to go into it too quickly and to get into a fourth wave. We have to do everything we can to avoid that so we are working on that and we expect it will be available very soon," Elliott said. "It is sector specific looking at what different types of sectors could perhaps be reopened and what their specific needs and timelines are."
All of Ontario is in a stay-at-home order, which is currently set to end on June 2. Yet, Dr. David Williams, Ontario's chief medical officer of health, had revealed earlier this month that the order may not be lifted until the province sees below 1,000 new cases a day.

The hospital posted a list of at-risk, high-risk, and highest risk conditions that are being prioritized for COVID-19 vaccines.
Sunnybrook lists autoimmune disorders, respiratory diseases and heart disease as at-risk conditions, along with many more. High or highest risk health conditions include, but are not limited to, those who have intellectual or developmental disabilities, organ transplant recipients and people with neurological diseases.
The hospital tweeted that appointments are limited due to the vaccine supply and their clinic's capacity, so they suggest checking back the following day if all of the slots fill up. Appointments are required and walk-ins are not accommodated at Sunnybrook.
