Morning Brew: April 2nd, 2007

Your morning news roundup for Monday April 2nd, 2007:

GO train commuters can now watch news, weather, and get service announcements via onboard TV screens. I think the ad revenue should be used to retrofit an on/off switch onto each unit.

The province's most dangerous stretch of road has resulted in another fatality, after the latest victim's car plunged into the canal.

Police have made an arrest in the strange OPP imposter case but still don't know why the man was donning an official uniform, visiting several GTA hospitals, and asking strange and disturbing questions.

Will a US Army deserter win his appeal and be granted refugee status in Canada? At least 17 other American AWOLers in Toronto are watching the legal battle closely.

Is a strict policy on violent behaviour in schools resulting in increased instances of homelessness amongst Toronto's black youth community? A Ryerson University study asks that very question and recommends changes to policy.

We're the #15 place to live in the world. Not too shabby.
