Here’s Why Toronto Smelled Like Dog Crap Yesterday

Case solved

A Toronto city councillor has seemingly solved the mystery of why Toronto smelled like hot garbage yesterday.

The question came up Thursday as Torontonians took to Twitter, asking others if they also smelled the dog shit smell had seemingly spread across the west-end.

Councillor Mike Layton says you can stop checking your shoes because the answer is Toronto’s sports fields.

According to a tweet posted Friday morning, Layton said the smell actually comes from the city’s Parks and REc department applying organic fertilizer to the city’s many sports fields.
