Morning Brew: October 10th, 2007
Your morning news roundup for Wedneday October 10th, 2007:
It's Provincial Election day, and many media outlets are wondering why Toronto's Mayor has been silent and why funding for cities never became a prominent election issue. Instead of fighting hard down the home stretch, Miller waited until the last minute and rather vaguely advised that we "look at our local candidates."
A Hells Angels biker is taking a Vaughan strip club to court after a security officer on their hire shot and wounded him. If the biker wins the $1.1million lawsuit, he may still walk with a limp but he'll have some sweet new leather tassels and a killer ride.
Violent and abrupt storms have contributed to relatively dry and rather devastating conditions for trees in the GTA. The city's forestry department has been forced to forgo regular maintenance to respond to emergency calls, and their budget is creating further woes.
Someone shot pepper spray in an east end school yesterday, prompting an evacuation.
Veterans aren't happy after the mayor quickly curbed the suggestion that we rename the DVP the "Veteran's Memorial Parkway". Isn't there a classier way to honour our war dead instead of renaming roads?
