City considers panhandling ban

Morning Brew: June 30, 2006

Your morning news roundup for Friday, June 30, 2006:

City Council considers a ban on panhandling, because of course, why help solve the problem when you can just make it illegal?

If the rising gas prices weren't enough of a deterrent to find new ways to get to work, how about the risk of corrosive materials covering the 401?

"If you are not doing needles and you are not gay, you wouldn't get AIDS probably, that's bottom line." The man who spoke those words is my city councillor. Ouch.

Happy Canada Day folks. See you all on Tuesday!
