Group Wants to Bring Back Speeding Cameras

Morning Brew: November 22, 2006

Your morning news roundup for Wednesday, November 22, 2006:

You may have thought that everyone despises photo radar, but apparently that's not true: the Ontario Road Builder's Association is pleading with Queen's Park to bring the loathed cameras back.

Good to see a Canadian broadcaster taking some risks on the net, especially with one of the most watched shows in the country: CTV is releasing episodes of Degrassi on the web before they air on television.

A new report shows that people from more affluent neighbourhoods are more likely to feel healthy than those in less affluent neighbourhoods. Nobody is surprised.

What may be a bit more surprising is the extent of the problems that are plaguing the Toronto police force, and why they're being hidden from the public.

Just in time for Christmas, W.A.T.C.H. has come out with a list of worst toys for children, prompting Mattel to recall some 191,000 toys in Canada.

Triumph, a Toronto-based rock band from before my time, will be inducted into the Canadian Music Industry Hall of Fame next year.

Shots were fired outside the Eaton Centre last night. Luckily, nobody seems to have been seriously hurt. Shots were also fired along the 401 as police were engaged in a high-speed chase. Again, there are no reports of injuries.

With the holidays around the corner, CityNews has released some tips on what to do if you're arrested at a RIDE spotcheck. My biggest piece of advice: don't get arrested at a RIDE spotcheck, have a designated driver.
