The Future of Toronto's Sewer Covers?

Morning Brew: November 28, 2006

Your morning news roundup for Tuesday, November 28, 2006:

Street art is going to the sewers in Toronto: the city is asking residents to submit designs for manhole covers in Regent Park.

The Toronto Star is saying that it's a good thing that Howard Moscoe isn't coming back as TTC Chair, and the Globe is already pegging Mihevc and Giambrone as likely successors.

Harper may have won the historic Quebec vote (do I have to start calling it "la nation de QuĂŠbec" now?) but he did it at the cost of losing his Intergovernmental Affairs Minister.

In a story too Hollywood to be true, a 29-year-old man met two women at a Toronto bar, spent the night in Niagara Falls with them, and then returned to Toronto only to be pistol-whipped and have his Jaguar stolen.

Tokyo may be stealing our claim of having the tallest tower in the world, but at least Ontario's still a bigger auto-producer than Michigan. No wonder they don't want our trash.

People who live in the building where a grow-op was discovered last week might be getting compensation from the Ontario government.

It might not bother you, but it's definitely big news for me: Tropicana is raising it's prices. I may have to switch orange juice brands now. Either that, or just stock up.
