Toronto Grand Prix Revvs Up This Weekend

Morning Brew: July 7, 2006

Your morning news roundup for Friday, July 7, 2006:

It's Grand Prix weekend in Toronto, and I wonder: are Champ Car drivers being bogged down by the high gas prices like we regular folk are?

When running from the police, falling off a balcony might not be the smartest of escape routes.

Ontario has a new official tartan, meaning next time you go kilt shopping, you can wear your provincial pride.

The Toronto International Film Festival lineup features some big names for this September, meaning you'll at least be able to star-gaze if you can't get tickets to the screenings.

Have a few million dollars to throw around? Well, you could buy a new house in Toronto, or you can spare some to help me pay off my student loans. Good investment either way.
