Your morning news roundup for Thursday November 1st, 2007:

Toronto got its smog report card, and scored a rather shameful C+ grade. The Toronto Environmental Alliance, the watchdog group that did the assessment is calling for a TTC fare freeze until 2010, amongst other recommendations.

The Toronto Raptors got off to a great start, beating the Philadelphia 76ers in their season opener.
