Your Toronto morning news roundup for Thursday April 24th, 2008:

I've gone from cold to cool with the idea of naming private buildings after corporations (even though I still call it the SkyDome), but please do not sell naming rights to TTC subway stations in the same manner. Find needed money elsewhere, please!

In other TTC-related news, the union is seemingly divided on the tentative contract deal raising fears that a strike might soon be a renewed consideration.

Pedal/electric-powered EcoCabs are set to begin service downtown next week, but may not be able to due to legal and licensing issues. Cyclists are also not thrilled with the idea of these blocking already hard-to-find, clear bike lanes.

Defence lawyers lost in their bid to seal some details about the alleged Toronto terrorists plans for mass destruction. Based on how things have proceeded so far, it's very difficult to know what the heck is going on here - did law enforcement agencies thwart a major terrorist attack, or are we seeing a "Torontanamo" in the making?

Some economists are using the R-word to describe Ontario's situation. Don't smash open that piggy bank just yet though.

Things are certainly coming to life outside as spring bloom continues. Now is a perfect time for you green thumbs to brush up on your strategies for great green growing in your garden.
