Your morning news roundup for Thursday August 30th, 2007:

An interim school safety report on C. W. Jeffreys was released last night. While students overwhelmingly agree that drugs and gangs are a major problem, the majority also say that they consider the school safe. Their new principal has high hopes for the school, and the panel wants to see assessments expanded to include other schools.

A police sting operation has netted a luxury vehicle thief ring. Sports cars, SUVs, boats, and even tractor-trailers full of bubble gum that are usually stolen and shipped off to places like Lebanon and Dubai were seized.

A Toronto family doctor has admitted to scamming OHIP out of close to $1million in street-salable downers. Your tax dollars hard at work!

Recent mail bombs in the GTA are causing some suspicious package hysteria, and police are being called in to detonate teapots and lost briefcases.

The Toronto ban on lawn pesticides may be extended to include municipalities across the entire province. In 10 years we may be living in fields of dandelions, which wouldn't actually be all that bad.

Breaking news: don't put your hair in your green bin.
