TORONTO SKYSCRAPERS

Morning Brew: March 31st, 2009

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

The province has made a bold move to shake things up for transit, knocking the current board off duty at Metrolinx [G&M] (many were elected politicians, Mayor Miller included) and replacing them with former Torstar top dog Robert Prichard in the interim. As a result, Go Transit now lies under Metrolinx authority [NP]. Some are concerned that Metrolinx will harpoon Transit City. Will the fate of our transit system end up being controlled by some powerful OMB-esque entity?

To kill the Beaches coyote or not? That is no longer the question [CBC]. [hype]But having tasted blood... will it return to kill again!?!?[/hype]

Flying out of Toronto Island Airport could get cheaper [Sun], if taxpayers money (rather than airlines' money) is used to pay customs staff. Always a contentious issue, this is sure to stir up some controversy.

It's like Y2K all over again, but this time it's only Windows users that need be concerned. The Conficker virus is set to unleash something unknown tomorrow [CityNews]. Wouldn't it be cool if it ends up infecting all Windows machines, taking full control over them, and installing a more stable and secure OS?

Starting tomorrow (no joke), parking at TTC commuter lots will no longer be free for Metropass users... unless you're a TTC employee [Star]. Commuters are doubly pissed off about this double slap in the face.

And yet another clown was caught doing over 200km/hr on the 400 [CTV]. While impaired. How long will it before he drives again?
