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.

I have a baby shower to attend at two this afternoon, on Amarone Avenue in Woodbridge. I'm presently at my home in the west end of Toronto. I had thought I could take the GO, but it seems it doesn't go to Woodbridge on Sunday. How can I get there and back on public transit?
I want to know if I am crazy or not, because the last thing my life needs right now is More Bad Stuff. I am going through a very tough time lately (due to infertility and a dying parent). I also own two (neurotic) cats. I think I need a dog because an outpouring of goodness and unconditional happiness is sorely needed. But I'm trying to get knocked up, both my husband & I work full time, and I've never owned a dog before. Snowflake details inside, plus bonus question: if we get this dog, should it be a puppy or adult? From a breeder or a shelter? [more inside]

My partner and I have been trying for a while to conceive. We’ve used charting and ovulation predictors and, after six months, it’s not happening. I’m 38, he’s 37, and we want to get ourselves to a fertility clinic stat. Where we are, there are three to choose between. How do I make that choice? [more inside]
Moving to Toronto: Please help with our TTC questions [more inside]
My partner and I have decided to get knocked up via donor sperm. We are a queer couple and my partner is unable to get me pregnant. I'm still figuring out how this all works, but one thing I know is that I need sperm. Is there a good/reliable sperm bank in the upper midwest that you can recommend? I know that sperm can be shipped from the far far away lands of the coastal United States, but somehow I feel better if it doesn't have to travel so far -- it will be much more affordable as well.
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]
