How many more courses does Bryan Hayes have to take before he's a Certified General Accountant?

What local convenience store was John Pountney managing last year?

What does Mike Matthews' minister say about his abilities as a Sunday School teacher?

In an editorial feature that only a political junkie could love, SooToday.com has posted every word on every document submitted to City Council on behalf of the 15 applicants for the Ward Three council seat vacated by Derik Brandt.

That's every resume, every cover letter, every letter of reference.

It's the entire 41-page package that your City Councillors are reviewing this weekend in preparation for Monday's selection meeting.

We've deliberately avoided correcting errors of spelling and grammar. This means, for example, that the candidate who asks to "be put on the ballet" requested exactly that.
