Two wintry days in Toronto - what should we not miss?

Arriving Sunday morning - have Sunday and Monday essentially to run around, eat and drink and have a good time. Staying near Union Station and relying on public transport...been to Niagara, so no need for a detour outside of the city. Suggestions? St. Lawrence market appears to be closed both days, which makes me very sad. Snowflakes inside. [more inside]

I need a high-risk OB. I want a midwife. How can I do this in Ontario?

Due to my history of pulmonary embolism, I have been told I need a high-risk obstetrician to handle my prenatal care and delivery. However, I want the more hand-holdy and actually present approach of a midwife. But you have to choose one or the other. Is there a team-based practice or some sort that I can use? Or get a midwife first and then get them to bring in the OB, or...? [more inside]

Bike goes flippy-floppy: need kickass double kickstand

The used hybrid I got for $200 a few years ago needs a proper, robust kickstand (ideally a double kickstand) to replace the weakass kickstand it has right now. I need something strong enough to hold the bike steady when loading the back rack with groceries, but I'm not thrilled at paying half my bike's cost for a model like this one. I've seen cheaper ones like this, but some reviews suggest that it rides really low when folded back. And this one is in-between in price, but I'm wondering about how effective it is. Suggestions? Easy shipping to Canada or a local store in Toronto would be appreciated.

How much time between flights to pass customs from Paris to Toronto?

I am buying my plane tickets for a trip this summer. One ticket has as its return a change of plane/layover time of 1hr 35m between the flight from Paris to Toronto and the flight from Toronto to Kansas City. Alternatively, I can go with a different flight that on the return goes from Paris to Chicago with a 2h 45m layover. I'm assuming the latter is the option I should go with due to Customs delays but want other traveler's opinions for confirmation. [more inside]

Toronto Hotel For A First Timer

We're visiting Toronto for the first time! We need a place to stay for two weeks! We don't know what to look for in a hotel aside from a nice place, but I'd like something fun and the SO would like a quiet place with lots of amenities (think wifi and breakfasts) that isn't too, in his words, "werid". All suggestions open and none of us drive, so public transit links/ access to typical tourist tat are key.

Quiet restaurant/pub with vegan options near St. Lawrence Market (TO)?

I want to have a series of conversations next week in a quiet restaurant (no loud music or background noise) which has at least a couple of decent vegan options on the menu. I'm hoping for something in the St. Lawrence area of Toronto, or, failing that, Corktown or downtown would be good. The group would be 3-5 people. Someplace with entrees under $30; $10-15 entrees best. Any suggestions?

Considering buying in Toronto -- what would you do?

I’m single, in my late 20s, living in Toronto. My family thinks it’s time for me to buy property and has generously offered to give me enough money to put down a 25% down payment. I’m feeling slightly overwhelmed and hesitant, for a few reasons. I'm at the very beginning of thinking about this so I'm probably missing some fairly obvious things. Please help me think through this. [more inside]

Which Toronto maker space?

I’m looking forward to a few months of planned professional downtime very soon, and I’d like to have access to workshop facilities to develop some 3D printed and laser/CNC-cut plywood constructions. I’m in the east end, and would prefer something readily subway accessible. I’ve heard that some of the better known places have their equipment over used and under maintained, and I’d like to avoid that kind of downtime. All suggestions gratefully considered.

What can I do to solve this?

I live in a studio apartment with parquet flooring. The building is old for one in Toronto (~25 years), and the heating comes from pipes embedded in the ceiling of the room. The tenants right under my unit have their heat constantly turned on, which means my floor is constantly hot. Turning on my AC and two fans all the time doesn't solve the problem, and is borderline surreal as I embark on yet another Toronto winter. [more inside]
