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.

Dressing up the pet dog for Halloween may be fun (Darth Vader and Yoda are particularly popular costumes), but the Toronto Humane Society warns us to be cautious - dogs may try to eat their plastic disguise.

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. Maybe we should stop selling them weapons?
