Your morning news roundup for Monday October 29th, 2007:

Crossroads Puzzles are back this week! Play the game after the jump.

Community housing advocates want bylaws that will make abandoned and neglected buildings easier to expropriate for affordable housing and community centre needs.

The USA have claimed all of Niagara Falls as their own! Views of the Canadian falls only possible from the Canadian side have been included in tourism videos commissioned by The State Department and Homeland Security Department's Customs and Border Protection agency.
