Your morning news roundup for a windy Wednesday January 30th, 2008:

Air Canada flights with YYZ in their trip plans seem to be jinxed. When it isn't passengers losing it, or computer systems losing it, it's one of the pilots losing it. A pilot on a London-bound flight had to be bound after he had a psychological breakdown. Sound familiar?

Toronto District School Board members voted on the creation of a highly debated black-focused school to help combat a serious, ongoing problem (about 40% of black students in Toronto don't get their grade 12 diploma). The concept was approved by a narrow 11-9 vote and has many people rejoicing and others reciting Martin Luther King and Rosa Park quotes. Is this an endorsement for specialization or segregation in one of the world's most diverse cities?

As a kid growing up in Etobicoke, it was common knowledge that Peel region police were a little tougher and certainly stricter than the local force. Maybe it's because they've been jacking up on steroids?

It's crazy windy out there this morning. Stuff is being blown around and the winds have caused one street closure and several power outages already.

The "more than street meat" food cart pilot project was given the green light by city council, but the project needs a charitable injection of funds to get off the ground. Anyone care for a BMO samosa, or a CIBC sandwich?
