Your morning news roundup for Monday October 15th, 2007:

Torontonians finished in first and second place in the annual Toronto Marathon yesterday. And kudos to my ex-girlfriend for qualifying for Boston. :)

The U of T football team is singing the blues, having broken the all-time Canadian university football record for most consecutive loses (48). Ouch.

Police in Richmond Hill are looking for a sexual predator who wore a Halloween mask during an attack inside his victim's apartment. Let's hope this creep is caught quickly.

Should it be illegal to smoke inside a car carrying children? Ontario doctors like the idea, which California recently adopted.

Harper continues to represent you and me, and demonstrate his fondness for Texan weasel policy. Our Prime Minister has secretly ordered the construction of his very own press center, where he'll have tighter control over what gets said by whom to whom. This news comes shortly after Harper used the National Press Gallery (a fixture for Canadian PMs since 1965) for the first time.
