City Won't Meet Bike Lane Target

Morning Brew: June 1, 2006

Your morning news roundup for Thursday, June 1, 2006:

It looks like the city won't fulfill its target for 495km of bike lanes by 2011. Apparently, City Council has forgotten about how valuable bikes were during the TTC strike earlier this week.

The Michigan landfill site where we dump our sewage finally mustered up the cahones to tell Toronto to keep its own waste. Toronto sludge will have to go elsewhere starting in August.

The Leafs sign a deal to keep Brian McCabe in Toronto, which may be the only good decision the Leafs have made in years.

Scarborough General Hospital faces a class-action lawsuit after a hepatitis outbreak.

Toronto hospitals begin stockpiling Tamiflu, bringing the threat of avian flu closer and closer to home.

The TTC Union puts its credibility in jeopardy by starting an attack ad campaign and threatening more strikes, leaving the public to be less sympathetic to even their most valid concerns. Not smart Mr. Kinnear.

Torontonians are left to wonder which is better, smog alerts or tornado alerts, after vicious storms slammed the city yesterday, grounding some planes at Pearson airport.
