Morning Brew: January 5th, 2007

Your "bringing it home" morning news roundup for Friday January 5th, 2007:

Team Canada takes on the Russians in the world junior hockey championships this afternoon in an attempt to bring home the title for the third consecutive time and become the winningest country in the history of the tournament. I know I'll be glued and won't be getting much work done this afternoon. You can watch live on TV and broadband internet courtesy of TSN. 12:30pm.

An RCMP jet brought former Olympic medalist Myriam Bedard back to Canada after she spent two weeks in a US jail. Now that's service!

It's a touching story. A bracelet worn by a Canadian WWII soldier was found on a former battlefield and is being returned home to his daughter in Toronto.

Bacon. Apparently more of us are bringing it home now than ever before, as Canada's unemployment rate has hit a 30-year low.

If you're leaving home by air, keep your eyes on your fries. Pearson Airport baggage handlers have been busted for theft. Citynews has a list of precautions you might consider if you want to leave and return home with all of your valuables.
