Morning Brew: September 17th, 2007

Your morning news roundup for Monday September 17th, 2007:

Today marks the first Monday under the constrained budget squeeze that many city-run recreation and community centres are not open. Pulling on a locked door that's usually open will be a tendon-jarring surprise to some.

On a related note, Mayor Miller's campaign to bolster support for his proposed up-taxes-for-revenue plan seems to be getting some buzz amongst some community groups and developers.

Police cameras in public spaces in the Jane & Finch area have been rolling for 4 months now but recordings have not been accessed often and no footage has yet to contribute to any investigations. Perhaps they will, in the fullness of time.

Our already complex underground retail maze network (aka PATH) could double in size within a decade. I'm looking forward to the day when I can walk from Harbourfront to College Park in the winter without so much as seeing snow and slush.

Early statistics show that this summer has been the worst ever for West Nile virus cases, with 1800 infections so far. Most of the confirmed cases were in the prairies, and jokes about natural selection are completely inappropriate ;)
