Your morning news roundup for Wednesday November 28th, 2007:

Yesterday the lights went out in the downtown core again, due to a transformer problem at Hydro One. Am I imagining things, or is this not happening far too often recently? Do raccoons, like cats, also have nine lives?

A foodbank in Parkdale has found temporary emergency funding and will remain operational as Christmas approaches after all. The rally and fundraising push by community activists was key.
