(via CBC.ca) Mayor John Tory goes to LA with plan to promote the film industry in Toronto. As we let you know earlier, Tory is taking a three-day staycation in Tinseltown where he hopes he can meet up with some of the biggest studios and increase development. Meanwhile, back home, labour issues continue, and the folks of CUPE Local 79 are currently working out a plan for their work-to-rule campaign.
