LCBO Considers Returnable Bottles

Morning Brew: September 7, 2006

Your morning news roundup for Thursday, September 7, 2006:

Go to the liquor store and get some money back (to buy more liquor). Sounds good to most people, and the idea could become reality as the LCBO is considering moving towards returnable bottles.

Piece of advice: if you're a wanted criminal in another country, don't come to Toronto. Our police are surprisingly good, as one Polish murder suspect found out yesterday.

One of Ontario's top lawyers was sentenced to 15 months in prison after a investigation on corruption in the province's courts that has also implicated some Toronto police officers.

Toronto police have issued an alert after three robberies plagued Scarborough on Tuesday night.

Mayor Miller proudly announced that Dionne Brand's What We All Long For has won the Toronto Book Award.

It's not just in the video games or in L.A.: a drive by-shooting sent a North York man to the hospital yesterday evening.

If you haven't heard already, there's a little film festival going on in the city that kicks off today.
