A weekend of intense bargaining has produced "the basis for a deal" that could bring a swift end to the strike by municipal workers in Canada's largest city.
The most visible effect of the 35-day strike has been the mounting piles of rotting garbage growing at temporary dumps across the city. But many other services, including city-run daycares, ambulances and applications for building permits have also been affected.
Here are some photos of what Torontonians certainly won't miss about the past month.
