Morning Brew: March 20th, 2007

Your morning news roundup for Tuesday March 20th, 2007:

For the second time this month, an armoured car was robbed at gunpoint in the west end. Police are investigating the possible connection between the two incidents.

If you see someone with a saw under your car, chances are high that your catalytic converter is being stolen. The metals in this exhaust component are worth lots on the scrap blackmarket.

Oshawa is still milking its publicity stunt / love affair with American TV icon Stephen Colbert, and will be hosting a party to celebrate their loser status. Colbert has no plans to be there.
