Morning Brew: March 22nd, 2007

Your morning news roundup for Thursday March 22nd, 2007:

Should the TTC stop thinking out loud? The latest transit proposal to go public sees a dedicated streetcar lane for the King St. route in the core. I'll bet businesses in the area are already preparing their defense. This is one small project that I'd like to see actually come to fruition right away.

According to the Star, mayor Miller's "One Cent" campaign isn't getting much backing from his allies. The campaign web site hasn't seen an update in the "latest news" section in almost a month as well.

A group of Ontario lawyers and sex trade workers are launching a challenge to our province's higher courts in what essentially amounts to the decriminalization of prostitution. They advocate that safety should come first, and that our current laws don't take safety into account.

Menu Foods, the Toronto-area pet food company that allegedly put too much vitamin D (which is toxic, and can kill cats and dogs), is now facing a slew of lawsuits from angry pet owners.

The Parkdale purse-snatcher who hurt an elderly woman and was shown to the public after being caught on video has been apprehended by police. The guy is well known to police, which hopefully doesn't suggest that the scumbag will be back for more trouble again in the near future.
