Morning Brew: March 27th, 2009

What's happening in the GTA (and sometimes beyond):

Bow-chicka-chicka-bow-bow [Star]. Three city councillors had lunch (mmm... "finger me foods") with beats blaring and boobs bouncing at a south Etobicoke strip club, and gave the "facility tour" a thumbs up. They didn't look at the girls, of course, but they did return late for their 1:30pm meeting.

The Ontario budget was unveiled by Liberal Premier Dalton McGuinty yesterday, but it looked a lot like a Conservative plan. This prompted the Globe & Mail to publish two separate pieces: one likening McGuinty to Flaherty, and another suggesting Harper and McGuinty are partners. While it's unlikely that both are cheating on their wives and secretly dating each other, the budget does ring more nonsensical than I expected.

There's been an arrest in the despicable needle-in-the-ham food tampering case [CityNews] out in Guelph, but the "big jerk" who threw a live puppy in the garbage [Sun] is a mystery. Incidentally, the Sun's puppy story also wins today's "headline-that-could-have-been-written-by-a-6-year old" award.

And 6 new condo developments have been approved by City Council [NP]. It would appear that the boom isn't dead yet!
