#VoteTOin27: First candidates event this Thursday

I’m pleased to let you know that this Thursday is the first all-candidates event of the campaign. I say “event,” because this is decidedly not a straight-forward debate. Instead, my opponents and I are told we will “have to work with and against each other in a series of game show–inspired challenges that test civic knowledge and comprehension.” In other words, it should be a fun night, in addition to being informative.

Hosted by Maggie Cassella, “#VoteTOin27: So You Think You Can Council?” takes place this Thursday June 10th at Fly Nightclub (8 Gloucester St). Doors are at 6 p.m., with the program starting at 6:30 p.m. The event is free, but in order to ensure admission it’s recommended that you RSVP for free tickets by clicking here.

Hope to see you there!

See you there!

Biking from Toronto to Montreal – Please sponsor me

This summer, Claire and I will bike from Toronto to Montreal as part of the Friends for Life Bike Rally to raise money for the Toronto People With AIDS Foundation, which provides support for men, women and children living with HIV/AIDS.

In order to participate, however, we need to reach our ambitious fundraising goals. That means that every donation will count, big and small. And we’d really appreciate your support.

This is the first public announcement of our donation pages, so you could be first! Hurry! You’ll receive a tax receipt for any donation over $20, and I’ll also be super grateful.

I won a thing

Those of you who follow me on Twitter will know that last Tuesday I participated in a Rock Band (the video game) competition for the Sick Kids Foundation. And my band won. And I’m really thrilled about it. A short video of one of our songs is embedded below and there’s a photo gallery on Flickr here. My brother Alex Tindal is on vocals (you may recognize him from the “Canada Land” Tim Horton’s Roll-up the Rim commercials), my wife Claire Salloum is on bass, and our friend Jerome Valero is on drums.

I will have you know that in this clip I am performing on “expert” and have lost my guitar strap, as has Claire. There are lots of hilarious things I could tell you about the evening, but main thing you should know is that our prize for winning this Rock Band video competition was recording studio time. Seriously.
