When Escalators Attack

Morning Brew: November 10, 2006

Your morning news roundup for Friday, November 10, 2006:

Like a scene out of one of those weird sci-fi horror movies, an escalator at Union Station went berserk yesterday, sending passengers tumbling and injuring eight.

Defrauding a major corporation is bad, but defrauding the lottery? Now that's just plain heartless. The OLGC is stepping up security measures to make sure all lottery winnings in the province are legit.

Something must be wrong with our water, because people in this city are thinking funny: how could 50% of the people in this city OPPOSE bringing an NFL team here?

I'm not sure how this goes unnoticed for so long, but apparently the city is owed over $200 million in unpaid traffic tickets.

Yet another shooting took place in the city last night, as a man in his 20s was shot near Kipling and Steeles.

If they work in other cities, why not in Toronto? A new poll suggests that city residents are warming up to the prospect of tolls on major roadways. I wonder how the 905-ers that drive into the city every morning feel about that.

The Ontario government has recently committed $2 million in order to curb violence against aboriginal women.

Mayoral candidates' favorite films, in short. Miller: edgy. Pitfield: inspiring. LeDrew: weird.

Some people are finally taking notice of the fact that there's a school trustee election happening on Monday, as fears of a union-backed school board are making parents sit up and take notice.
