Finch Avenue West Collapses Last Summer

Morning Brew: April 27, 2006

Your morning news roundup for Thursday, April 27, 2006:

Jealous of all the attention Finch Avenue West was receiving after its collapse last summer, Sheppard Avenue West decided to crumble after a water-main break yesterday morning.

Summer camp staff and other city workers no longer have a reason to have a troubled conscience when they go to work, as Toronto City Council recently voted in favor of adopting a "No Sweatshops" purchasing policy for city clothing.

After yesterday's fatal stabbing near Fairview Mall, the fourteenth knife attack in Toronto this year, you can't help but wonder if knives are the new guns.

Yet another reason to take your bike to work: TTC workers are considering an illegal strike in order to protest shift changes.

Recognized as being the one man on the Toronto Blue Jays that was always smiling, as well as for his dominating presence on the plate and in the outfield, Dave Winfield was nominated for the College Baseball Hall of Fame for his pitching, of all things.

Despite its starring roles in Hollywood blockbusters like X-Men, Union Station just couldn't keep its renovation deal. Somebody needs a new agent.
