Everyone’s favorite mayor, Rob Ford, left rehab Monday and returned to work by holding a press conference from which most of the City Hall press gallery was actually banned.
Conveniently, Ford returned to work just in time to take a holiday. Today, July 1st, is the day Canadians like Kevin celebrate Canada Day, which marks the birth of America’s politest neighbor.
YOU can celebrate Canada Day by listening to our Toronto episode!
Well, we didn’t want to be the first to say it, but somebody had to.
Ukraine’s Acting Foreign Minister, Andriy Deshchytsia, may need a lesson or two in the dos and don’ts of international diplomacy. But for now, we can’t fault the guy for speaking his mind. To be fair, Putin did cut off the natural gas supply to Ukraine this week. Which is a total dickhead move.

FLOATERS. A short film by Benari Poulten.
I recently spent the last few days with an intensely cool and creative group of people up in Big Bear. This is a one-minute movie I shot up there on my iPhone.
*There’s also a totally unnecessary and self-indulgent director’s cut. Maybe I’ll share it some day.*
Just when you thought the situation in Ukraine couldn’t look any more like a spy thriller…
KIEV, Ukraine (AP) — As Ukraine’s tax chief tells it, the billion-dollar theft was planned at a see-through plastic table in a vault of sound-proof steel.
The table and six matching transparent chairs sit in a secret chamber on an upper story of the Tax Ministry in Kiev. It was the epicenter, he and other tax officials say, of a massive fraud suspected of squeezing 130 billion hryvnias ($11 billion) from Kiev’s coffers over the past three years — an amount equal to more than half a year’s tax revenue for the entire country.
If you were wondering what the fuck Steven Seagal has to say about Ukraine…
