Your morning news roundup for Tuesday, September 18, 2007:

Special Montreal transit shuttles ferry students from Mont Royal Secondary School to a nearby strip plaza every day, where youngsters can gorge themselves on fast food. The service is coming under fire from nutritionists, who see it as flying in the face of premier Jean Charest's efforts to limit the availability of junk food in schools.

Finger-pointing has begun within the federal Liberal Party, after Thomas Mulcair, the NDP's candidate carried the Outremont riding in Monday's by-elections. One theory has it that the poor poll results were partly due to efforts by Michael Ignatieff supporters to undermine Liberal leader Stephane Dion.

Benoit Labonte and two other municipal politicians bolted from mayor Gerard Tremblay's political party on Monday, citing their frustration with Tremblay's leadership style.

The case against handshaking: one in three main fail to wash their hands after going to the bathroom, compared to one in eight women, say researchers who covertly monitored users of public loos. Does anyone else find their methodology disturbing?
