Your morning news roundup for Monday March 31st, 2008:

Earth Hour turned into Earth Sunday for a number of residents in the south end of the downtown core. Multiple power line failures left them without electricity all through the night. It's a great excuse to be late for work this morning, but likely a significant disturbance to routine (cold showers and convenience store coffee for all!).

With the help of an observant mall security guard, police busted a pervert who was shooting cell phone upskirts of unsuspecting school girls in the Eaton Centre. Link to his panty-laden web site after the jump...

Police have also made an arrest in the callous Lawrence Heights shooting case which employed chilling video posted to Youtube and various media outlets. A second suspect is still being sought.

There's talk of changing the legal age for drinking alcohol to 21 in Ontario. Expect condemnation of the suggestion to come from LCBO executives any day now. At the same time, the federal government continues with its witch hunt on less harmful, non-regulated drugs, while more or less eliminating harm reduction from the equation.

When are impenetrable walls of an armoured car not an asset? When one flips over on the highway and people inside are injured and inaccessible to rescue crews.
