French Summer Camp: Supporting a Supporter of #realtalk

Camp Tournesol, the largest French camps in Ontario, has once again stepped up to support local, independent podcast.

Since 2001, Camp Tournesol has provided French camps in the GTA for tens of thousands of children ages 4 to 14. Whether your child is Francophone, in French Immersion, or has no French experience, they have a day camp or an overnight experience for them.

Camp Tournesol joins Great Lakes Brewery, Palma Pasta, Fast Time Watch & Jewellery Repair Property in the Six and StickerYou.com as proud sponsors of Toronto Mike'd, and I'm incredibly grateful for their support. Please consider rewarding these companies for stepping up in this manner.

If you have a child between the ages of 4 and 14, send them to French camp this summer. The benefits are many, and for a limited time you will get $20 off your first order by entering promo code "mike2019". Learn more at https://www.camptournesol.ca/.

Yesterday, We Were Perfect

Yesterday was a very good Friday for Toronto sports fans. We won 'em all!

In a crucial game five in Boston, the Leafs held on for a 2-1 win and a 3-2 series lead. This was a biggie.

Meanwhile, in Orlando, the Raptors beat the Magic 98-93 to take a 2-1 series lead. Pascal Siakam led the way with 30 points and 11 rebounds.

At BMO Field, TFC staged a comeback when Jordan Hamilton scored two goals at the 77th and 79th minute to defeat Minnesota United FC 4-3. Alejandro Pozuelo scored TFC's first two goals.

In AHL action, the Toronto Marlies kicked off the North Division semifinals on the right foot with a convincing 4-1 win over the Rochester Americans to take a 1-0 lead in the best-of-five series.

Blake Wallace and Gareth O'Brien scored three tries apiece as the Toronto Wolfpack rallied from a 12-0 deficit Friday to beat Barrow Raiders 52-26 in Betfred Championship rugby league play.

And the perfect day was capped when the Jays beat the A's 5-1 in Oakland. This has never happened before, in fact, this is the first time the Blue Jays, Maple Leafs, Raptors, and Toronto FC have all won on the same day.

Yesterday, we were perfect.

Notre-Dame Cathedral: My Pics

In 2012, I had business in Amsterdam, but took a few personal days to visit Paris first. What a city! I got engaged on this trip, proposing at the top of the Eiffel Tower.

We also visited Notre-Dame, a stunningly beautiful cathedral that took my breath away. And I'm a happy atheist!

Today, the Notre-Dame Cathedral burns into the night. Such a great loss, but we will rebuild. We must rebuild.

Here are some pictures I took of the Notre-Dame Cathedral on that trip back in 2012.
