Borat Comes to TIFF Midnight Madness

Morning Brew: July 26, 2006

Your morning news roundup for Wednesday, July 26, 2006:

Jak sie masz? Fans of comedy in Toronto rejoice at the inclusion of the new Borat movie in TIFF's Midnight Madness program, while Kazakhstanis shake their heads in disappointment.

A crack that's been around for at least fifty years is finally going to get fixed at Toronto's oldest firehall. Maybe it's like a scar: the crack adds character?

$980 million being paid to the city by an energy company, and not one cent being used for sustainable energy strategies. Then again, who's going to pay for that York University subway line?

The city is considering using private money to fund the building of infrastructure. If I had cash, the Vasta Center For Kids Who Can't Read Good and Want To Learn To Do Other Stuff Good Too would start construction immediately.

A motorist on the DVP is safe but a little shaken after the wheel of a minivan came off and flew into her windshield. So what happened to the driver of the minivan?

One of the Toronto Zoo's original residents died earlier this week, and it's only fitting that we give her a fond farewell.

What would you do if you found several thousands of dollars in cash on the street? Well, some people would give it back. Of course, it's definitely way too much money to be one of those Readers' Digest politeness studies.
