Your Toronto morning news roundup for Thursday April 17th, 2008:

TTC strike watch:
Unconfirmed reports have it that there's a good chance that Monday morning will mark the start of a TTC strike (and will be a complete clusterfu*k on our roads and on GO transit). An announcement to come at a news conference later this morning should confirm/dismiss our fears. Watch for an announcement on blogTO.

Here's a grrrreat idea: arm TTC special constables with tasers, bro!

Here's (actually) a great idea: free clotheslines for 75,000 Toronto residents! But be sure your municipal laws permit you to hang your undies before you race off to take advantage of this freebie.

Even if you don't use a car, the effect of rising fuel costs is going to bite you - at the grocery store. Proponents for the local food movement are looking smarter and smarter by the day. Eating seasonal/local is good for both the environment and the wallet.

Toronto schools are about to take a major hacking. Being eyed: smaller city schools with low enrollment will potentially be on the chopping block, along with school pools and ESL classes (which could affect as many as 30,000 students).
