Your morning news roundup for Wednesday September 26th, 2007:

Truck drivers are making themselves look really bad lately. Yet another major tractor trailer accident has the northbound and southbound 427 ramps to the 401 closed.

Also on the topic of roads, American consultants are tossing out the idea of building a new highway from Buffalo to Toronto to ease congestion and create jobs. When our dollar hits $1.10US it'll also make it easier for people to race to the outlets malls south of the border.

Tourism Toronto launched a new ad campaign targeting Mexico and UK. The ads aim to appeal to travelers and tout our city as a posh, high-end escape where you can shop 'til you drop. There should plenty of opportunity for crowd-free shopping, since we'll all be in Buffalo.

And lastly, our kids are delinquents and not afraid to admit it.
