1. UBER IS LEGAL
Uber is finally legal in Toronto but it will probably cost you more. City council voted to change the Uber X base fare from $2.50 to $3.25 per ride. Taxis will now be allowed to offer surge pricing online.
Big news Toronto… City council welcomed ridesharing today! Thank you Toronto and Mayor Tory. Excited for the road ahead. #TO4Uber

4. FORT MAC WILDFIRE
The entire city of Fort McMurray Alberta has been evacuated because of wild fires. Nearly 60,000 people have been displaced. If you want to help out, donate $5 by texting the word “Redcross” to 30333.
My thoughts are with people affected by the fire in Fort McMurray tonight. Stay safe and remember to follow evacuation orders. #ymmfire
