Are there any beautiful or inspiring study spaces in downtown Toronto? We're graduate students living in the Annex neighbourhood of Toronto looking for somewhere to think and write. We know the cafe scene, Robarts library, and have been to the Pratt library. Are there other interesting and exciting (but still quiet) places to get some work done when we want to get out of the house?

Filming on mass transit in Toronto, Canada. Legal? ... A friend of a friend of mine was on a Toronto streetcar when a fellow passenger complained about the delay to the driver. The driver threw a fit and decided the passenger had to leave or she wouldn't drive on. The passenger refused. The driver called an inspector. The inspector sided with the driver (of course). My friend captured this on her cell phone video. When the inspector sees the camera (which was in clear view the entire time) he walks over and smashes the camera out of her hand (he didn't ask her to turn it off first). My friend wants to post the video but is unaware if filming on the transit system in the city is illegal as faces are clearly visible. I saw the video and was shocked and want it spread wide. Legally, what's the situation? [more inside]

I didn't activate mobileme.
My iphone was stolen from my bag in a yoga studio change room a few hours ago.
Called Rogers to freeze service, called apple, and called police to file report. No one seems to be willing to do anything to track it down.
Is there ANY way I can track its whereabouts?

How does an established professional but not well known artist best go about 'exhibiting' a collection of beautiful metal sculptures in Toronto?
Would they have to rent their own space and throw an event?
Do they pitch/apply to various galleries? Which ones?
Asking for a friend! Thanks in advance...I love the green.
