Morning Brew: March 7th, 2007

Your morning news roundup for Wednesday March 7th, 2007:

1 in 6 Ontario children are living in poverty. Ontario Campaign 2000 cites our low minimum wage, gaps in social assistance programs, and increases in the number of temp jobs. I challenge you to think about that the next time you get upset when your iPod freezes or your flight to the Caribbean is delayed.

Revenue Canada's online tax submission system is broken, and a backlog is already forming. You might be better served by licking an envelope and snail mailing your return this year, if you remember how to do so.

In case you missed it - the TTC blames us for delays. The ad campaign is not going over all that well so far. I would imagine that Mayor Miller must be...ahem... pissed off.

Four Mississauga teens face sexual assault, child pornography, and other charges for the drugging and gang attacking of a fellow student. The victim reported the incident (which she didn't have any recollection of) after she saw photos and video of the attack circulating at her school. I hope these guys are all tried as adults and have the book thrown at them really hard.

Toronto street signs will be getting a new look, but it will take an estimated 25 years to complete the installation. The old signs may end up being auctioned off for charity. Is there a particular street sign that you're fond enough of that you'd hang it in your home?
