Your morning news roundup for Friday, November 2nd, 2007:

The second Canadian in two weeks to be accused of sex crimes against children has been arrested in Vancouver. According to an RCMP source, 54-year old Orville Frank Mader was arrested at Vancouver International Airport and is now being detained in nearby Surrey, where he used to live. His arrest came shortly after a high-profile manhunt for sex offender Christopher Paul Neil of Maple Ridge, B.C. that ended in Thailand after Interpol circulated pictures of him, resulting in hundreds of tips.

Two teenage drivers were charged with negligence and dangerous driving causing death after being involved in a crash that killed a three-year old girl on ÃŽle-Perrot. Bianca Leduc was in her babysitter's yard helping her put up Halloween decorations early Wednesday afternoon when she was run over by a car that swerved onto the lawn. Area officials lamented a lack of police forces that make street racing difficult to control.

News from the sidelines: The Canadiens steamrolled the Philly Flyers 5-2 yesterday despite worries about the visitors' ultra-physicality. Our boys next play the Toronto Maple Leafs on Saturday.

Loonie watch: The loonie hits yet another record, topping $1.07 US.
