Your morning news roundup for Monday July 16th, 2007:

Today is a big day for city council. They'll be voting on, and determining the fate of the much debated new land transfer and vehicle registration taxes for Torontonians.

People shoot and stab people, but city councillor Mammoliti suggests that rap music with violent lyrics inspires people to shoot and stab people at clubs. He wants to keep the gangsters, and their explicit music out.

The process of getting through security at Pearson airport is far less irritating when it runs smoothly and quickly, but ensuring speed may be resulting in compromised security.

Workers at a Mississauga mail handling facility have made a sweet discovery. 3-kilos of nose candy destined for the GTA were found hidden within honey pastries.

It all finally makes sense. Those rather relentless canvassers doing fundraising for Sick Kids (you've likely seen them with their clipboards all over the downtown core for some time now) are employed by third-party contractors that use a commission-based system of compensation.
