Morning Brew: January 4th, 2007

Your morning news roundup for Thursday January 4th, 2007:

Don't drink the punch. One woman is dead and other people are ill after drinking punch contaminated with methyl alcohol that was served at holiday parties near Chatham.

Five different police forces and a police helicopter were involved in a 100km high-speed chase around the GTA area. After assaulting an officer in Scarborough, the suspect hit the gas and fled. And like in a bad episode of Prison Break, he got away!

Today we're expecting Harper to detail a federal cabinet shuffle. How might changes up top affect Toronto?

Just weeks ago MPPs gave themselves a 25% pay raise, and just yesterday they gave Ontarians a $0.25/hour increase in minimum wage. Is the move appalling or appropriate?

Filed under shameful:
One of greatest symbols of cilvilan honour was posted to eBay. A medal given to a former recipient of the Order of Canada was up for auction before it was yanked by eBay. Will this be the next piece of metal to end up at a smelter?
