Your morning news roundup for Monday March 17th, 2008:

Hey ladies. Ever get that feeling that you're being watched? While you urinate? A Mississauga man is facing one charge of voyeurism after a tiny camera was found in a women's restroom at a corporate office.

Does your Ontario include Pit Bulls? Rambo, yet another dog on death row, is likely to be euthanized simply because of his genes. What's making things even harder is that he's not allowed to see his owner and is likely going to die in melancholy.

One of Conrad Black's sons, Jonathan David Black, is following in daddy's footsteps by landing himself in serious trouble with the law. It's alleged that the young Black was driving under suspension, without insurance, when he crashed into another car and promptly fled the scene. If he'd done this in Florida, I might have thought he was planning to break his dad out using his elaborate tattoos.

Ontario co-op wine project Niagara Vintners Inc. has gone way belly up. Sold under the name "20 Bees" (you've likely seen the horrific black and yellow packaging), the co-op is $40million in the hole. Anyone want to buy the remaining 3.6million litres of bulk wine?

Toronto's Pearson Airport got a bad report card from Transport Canada. Low marks for efficiency and fee levels add further evidence to the belief that our airport isn't so hot. I wonder how much weight was put on how poor the link to city center is.

A huge thanks to everyone that contributed opinion and feedback in my post last week.
