Morning Brew: November 16, 2006

Due to the lateness of this morning's brew, I can present you with some BREAKING news: Looks like the threat of 75mm of rain may have city officials closing the DVP mid-day today. Time to bring the hovercraft out of the garage.

Locals cabbies are fuming over 'illegal' limos *cough cough airport limos cough* bribing hotel doormen to get customers.

Cash grab or not, the City's collection agencies are following up on old unpaid tickets -- we're talking stuff from the '70's - and police are getting hit hard with the response from irritated citizens. Thankfully, they found time to arrest two suspects in Tuesday night's Malvern area shooting.

As mayoral candidates across the province deal with the aftermath of Monday's vote, the Star reports that losing your position as mayor is actually a profitable way to go out.

In sports, the Blue Jays are rumoured to be actively pursuing free-agent Frank Thomas and the NHL has scored a deal with YouTube which'll see fresh highlight clips making their way onto your screen regardless of whether you've got a fancy cable package or not.
