Morning Brew: June 8, 2006

Your morning news roundup for Thursday, June 8, 2006:

The Star looks at the places to party in Toronto during the upcoming FIFA World Cup. And now we have something to watch on TV that is much more exciting than the Stanley Cup.

After a few deadly crashes resulting from racing on Toronto's streets, Queen's Park introduces a new street racing bill, which really should have been around for years.

The city is looking into plans to get stoplight timers, meaning you'll now know if you have time to run to the trunk for a snack before the light turns green again.

A truck rollover blocked the 400 yesterday morning, meaning a lot of people who live up north had an excuse to take the day off.

A 72-year-old is suing the city for erroneously strip-searching him while searching for a 26-year-old suspect. That must be one young-looking senior citizen.
