After four straight decades as one of theToronto Sunday Sun’s most popular columnists, Mike Filey is still telling the stories of Toronto, its people, places, and history. In this twelfth volume of his acclaimed columns, “The Way We Were,” Filey tackles the Union Station controversy, Toronto’s Kennedy family, and more.
Mike Filey brings the stories of Toronto, its people and places, to life.

Mike Filey’s column “The Way We Were” first appeared in theToronto Sunday Sun not long after the paper’s first edition hit newsstands on September 16, 1973. Now, almost four decades later, Filey’s column has had an uninterrupted stretch as one of the newspaper’s most widely read features. In 1992, a number of his columns were reprinted inToronto Sketches: “The Way We Were.” Since then another eleven volumes have been published to great success, with over 5,000 copies sold.

In his latest compilation, Filey recounts the story of the controversial (though not altogether surprising) renovations at Union Station, as well as the history of Toronto’s own Kennedy family.
