    Where to Get Your Alternative Toronto Blue Jays Gear

    With spring training in full swing and regular season games just weeks away, it’s time to start thinking about what you’re going to wear to your next Toronto Blue Jays game. I, myself like to prepare well in advance, because going to a game isn’t just about watching Kevin Pillar dive 11 ft to catch a fly ball, or watching Bautista hit yet another dinger. It’s about the atmosphere and how to completely immerse yourself into the team spirit. Here are my suggestions on how to get geared up without spending a fortune on an authentic jersey.

The little event provided sustainably produced food and handcrafted gifts to its shoppers. But the group of students truly went above and beyond: they sourced a raffle and silent auction, and provided gift-wrapping, a photo booth, and even a piñata for the kids. Aside from having a good time planning and hosting the event, the organizers learned a lot. “We take the availability of sustainable food for granted in Canada,” says Sarah Ojamäe. “We thought the task would make us…

    Because It’s 2015

    By now you’ve heard of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s famous response to the question: “why is [a gender balanced cabinet] so important to you?” But what else is he doing to help feminism in Canada? Aboriginal Women After years of Harper avoiding the issue, Trudeau has pledged to finally investigate the murders and disappearances of hundreds of Aboriginal women.
