Your morning news roundup for Wednesday January 16th, 2008:

The Toronto Stock Exchange is taking a dip, as investors sell off crude oil and bank stocks. Apparently gold is where it's at, folks. Mr.T says "I told you so!" (fool).

GO Transit unveiled to the media its new, faster train yesterday. In what can only be described as no surprise, it pulled up 18-minutes late. Maybe they had to stall their arrival because Dalton, who was playing conductor, was so excited to be fulfilling his childhood fantasy that he had to take a number two.

Police are appealing to the public, in response to concerns that there may be several more sex slaves being hidden in the GTA. This is one rather sickening story, and cops are feeling somewhat powerless in their ability to find these people given the circumstances.
