Your morning news roundup for Friday June 1st, 2007:

The recently completed ROM Crystal will open its doors to the public this weekend. We've heard so much about it, and I know I can barely wait to see it..

Once again, a bacterial infection in a neo-natal ward at a Toronto hospital has forced a closure. Unfortunately the trend of going to the hospital only to find yourself sicker is a real problem.

Torontonians, please give blood. People need it more than you do.

A builder is looking to make cottaging more affordable by creating cottages meant for sharing. $80,000 will get you 1/10th (about 5weeks) of time up north each year.

It was during this week last year that the TTC went on strike illegally (thanks for the reminder, Reading Toronto).

Recognize this location in/near Toronto? Post your answer in the comments, and check for the answer in tomorrow's blogTO Morning Brew.

Yesterday's answer: Pickering Power Plant.
