New Tokens Coming to TTC

Morning Brew: November 21, 2006

Your morning news roundup for Tuesday, November 21, 2006:

You've all heard it by now: the TTC is getting new tokens. I think they're pretty. A card-based fare system would be even prettier though.

So much for accepting defeat with grace: Peter Li Preti is still accusing new councilor Anthony Perruzza of slander and dirty tricks.

No functioning fire alarm in your apartment? Better get that set up, because Ontario's fire marshal is asking fire departments to crack down on homes that don't have one installed.

Toronto's pedestrian crossings will now get countdown clocks, but I'm still not sure that will prevent some people from starting their dash across the street when there's only a second or two left.

Your morning commute might be a bit hairy, with Lakeshore still closed because of the flooding and an exit ramp on the Gardiner closed because of an early morning crash.

The controversial play about Rachel Corrie might be coming to CanStage, as the theatre company is negotiating rights to stage the play in the 2007-8 season.

I'm guessing he doesn't have enough people that have added him on Facebook, because Ignatieff was out yesterday at a pub trying to get more supporters.
