Painted red sky a glorious prediction of Thursday rain

The Toronto and East York sky on Thursday morning was dramatic and foreboding for the day’s weather. We are told to expect 5 to 10 cm of rain with a bit of snow overnight Friday. It will be sloppy on Friday as well. But it appears temperatures will stay at or above zero.  Photo: @marcusvichert, Twitter


Via Rail said early Thursday that all available $150 youth passes for unlimited travel across Canada in July had been sold out after the sales were derailed on Wednesday due to high demand on its website. The Canada 150 Youth Pass is intended to coincide with celebrations marking the country’s sesquicentennial. They went on sale Tuesday. The company said, however, that sales were temporarily suspended “due to high demand” and technical difficulties with its online booking engine.
