  • It's been a dramatic and historic week in the U.S. culminating yesterday with the Supreme Court affirming same sex marriage in all fifty states just in time for Pride Weekend here in Toronto and in New York City.
  • Well that was a ride. This past weekend was the 8th Ride to Conquer Cancer for Princess Margaret Hospital. 4 800 riders from all over Ontario saddled up on their bikes in Niagara Falls and Toronto and then traded places. We met up in Hamilton Saturday afternoon for a party. 
  • I'm doing the Ride to Conquer Cancer for a second year and I would love it if you would lend a hand. I've joined one of the most succesful fundraising teams in the event Team Hicksfire, made up of some very good friends who have been hit hard by cancer. Maureen survived breast cancer, our team leader Helen and her two young daughters lost a husband and father. 
  • Mad Men came to an end Sunday night. I wont spoil things in this first paragraph but if you have already seen it or don't mind spoilers they do lie ahead. 
  • People were surprised to see just how many parents held their kids out of school on Monday to protest the province's new sex ed curriculum. But when I heard what some people were saying about it I was struck by two things: 1) that many people simply objected to any mention of homosexuality and 2) that a lot of the things they’re upset about simply aren't in the text. 

About

Born and raised in Montreal, John Moore arrived in Toronto in 2003 to take over the afternoon show on NEWSTALK 1010 but was already a regular contributor to the morning show since 1999 – the show he currently hosts. Moore in the Morning, the informative morning show airs Monday to Friday 5:30AM – 9AM.

John holds a degree in Communications from Concordia University and graduated from the School of Community and Public Affairs. He cut his teeth as a hard news reporter and anchor in the 1980s before moving into entertainment and arts reporting which involved fewer separatist rallies and more free wine. His movie reviews and freewheeling entertainment commentaries were a staple for years on several Montreal stations, NEWSTALK 1010 and Global Television.

John was one of the founders of the award winning On the Spot Improv and spent years playing reporters and evil lawyers in film and television. He worked as a director and reporter at the French language CBC for two years before they decided his accent wasn’t nearly as cute as everyone had thought. Moore also writes regularly for The National Post.
