Your morning news roundup for Friday August 17th, 2007:

A potential arson was thwarted.

Ontario is getting new GO buses courtesy of the provincial government. Queue the onslaught of complaints about the aging TTC fleet...

Hydro rates will be going down in the fall. Much like with gasoline pricing, with all the ups and downs it's becoming difficult to remember what 'normal' rates were.
