Morning Brew: December 21, 2006

Your morning news roundup for Thursday December 21st, 2006:

The city has found a place for its garbage after closing a $220million deal to purchase the Green Lane Landfill near London. Don't be fooled by it's name.

While youngsters are often coerced into prostitution, police are claiming no adult involvement in a recent case in Oshawa. Two 15-year old Oshawa girls were arrested for prostitution, and appear to have been acting on unconventional entrepreneurial inclination.

Media giant Torstar is cutting jobs in its newspaper division. They cite difficulties in securing advertising due to changes in the media industry, namely the Internet and free newspapers.

After airing CFL games since 1952, the CBC has lost its broadcast rights to TSN. Apparently the public broadcaster wasn't even invited to join in bidding. Is the CBC going to end up as a news only network?

In case you didn't notice, I have an obsession with YouTube. Here's what may be a Canadian first - a suspect in an active case turned himself in after police posted a security camera video to the popular video sharing web site.

Update: Hamilton Police are now saying that the video was indeed a factor in the suspects surrender.
