Radar - Fake Babies and Big Budgets

Suspense is in the air this afternoon as the city awaits the provincial budget announcement at 4pm. Meanwhile, waiting is a practiced art for college students who are still waiting on a settlement that would get teachers back in the classrooms and the semester completed. Around noon, Minister Bentley asked teachers to go back. How polite. Binding arbitration has become the term du jour.

In other, government-making-decisions-that-make-or-break-us kind of news, the feds are forcing thousands of illegal immigrants to pack up their belongings, their kids, and their dreams and go 'home' -- even if there's no such thing. Their labour already exploited enough, a stamp on the passport will act as thanks. On a positive travel note, 2 men from Toronto and Montreal who'd been held hostage in Iraq have been freed.

Finally, along the periphery of this radar is the ridiculous bust of the evening: Driver caught in the HOV lane with fake baby in a car seat.
Att: Go Transit & Provincial powers that be: things are getting desperate on the highways... let's get some more trains running 'ere.
