BLAME CANADA: Toronto have cooked up a plan to persuade people it's safe to visit despite all that SARS business. They're going to have a big gig with Avril Lavigne, Barenaked Ladies and Sum 41. Yes, it might convince people the place is safe, but it's not going to make them any more likely to go there, is it? Faced with a choice between a 28 Days Later style urban meltdown and a gig where barenaked ladies warm up for Avril, I think I'd strap a Hello Kitty facemask over my gob and risk my health.
We did like this, though: "We want summer to start with a real bang, something that's going to bring a lot of livelihood, rockin' and poppin' and all that," Ontario cabinet minister Brian Coburn said. Presumably he's got the Daddio portfolio in the cabinet?
