We stopped by 99 Sudbury on Oct. 11th to check out the 3rd Annual Paws for the Cause gala – a yearly fundraiser dedicated to raising money for animal welfare. This year, all proceeds went to the Central Toronto Veterinary Referral Clinic. I think it’s safe to assume there are a multitude of dog lovers in our […]

Concert Photos and Highlights | Dispatch @ Sound Academy

American indie group, Dispatch, made a stop at Toronto’s Sound Academy over Thanksgiving long weekend (Oct 8).

Whether you’re with sports buddies, school peers, family or even a casual date – BP is always a […]
