Morning Brew: October 23, 2006

Your morning news roundup for Thursday, October 12, 2006:

Ontario Paint and Wallpaper owners watched with broken hearts as the remaining structure of their building was being torn down. On Friday, 170 firefighters fought the rare 7-alarm blaze that razed the historic building.

Today Porter Airlines will begin new Ottawa-bound flights from the Island Airport, and has plans to expand the service to include flights to Montreal, New York and Chicago . Downtowners will be able to get to the nation's capital quicker, but what's more intriguing is how this news will be handled by more local politicos.

Advance voting for the upcoming municipal election opens today. If you know you'll be doing laundry and can't get to a polling station, or are otherwise unable to vote on November 13th, take advantage of the advance voting options!

In what sounds more like an episode of Cold Cases or CSI, Ontario Provincial Police near North Bay acted on new tips from recent media reports and recovered the bodies of two people that went missing while boating over 50 years ago.
