Your morning news roundup for Monday March 24th, 2008:

There's a Torontonian out there that appears to be frustrated with our city - so much so that he/she has started a stickering campaign to get the message out. Spacing contributor Todd Harrison came across a "My Toronto Does Nothing for Me" sticker in the Beaches this weekend. I'd love to meet this person and pose many questions to this person, but until we figure out who this person is we're simply left saddened by the reality that some people actually feel compelled to react to our city's problems in such a negative, unconstructive way.

You've likely been wondering how the city will cope with the spring melt this year. The city has been working hard to manipulate the melt of the zajillion tonnes of snow in the city by using a massive melter at Ontario Place and sending mobile melters out around the city. The fear that the melt this year could trigger flooding is real, so we also have a ponding patrol on the beat.

Playing with martial arts training weapons in the studio, at 2am, while drunk, isn't a good idea. A punctured lung is a recipe for far more than a nasty hangover.

It's dangerous out there. Beware of the salmonella affected cantaloupe from Honduras, the potentially nutty Cadbury mini eggs, and the wrath of the potholes, and the guy who enters a coffee shop and sprays his shotgun.

Canoe reports that Pearson Airport won't be included in a major 2008 survey assessing International airports. The report is due in May, but the survey's researchers feared legal action after the GTAA sent them an intimidating letter. I'm unsure if the GTAA has a reputation to uphold or a reputation withhold.
