Your morning news roundup for Tuesday, December 11th, 2007:

Yes, it should have a been a good deal worse: "It could have been a good deal worse," said Canadian-born former press baron Conrad Black as he exited a Chicago courthouse yesterday. Instead of spending 24 to 35 years in jail as U.S. prosecutors had urged, Black will likely spend "85% of 6 1/2 years" (read: 5 1/2 years). Judge Amy St. Eve ordered him to pay US$6.1 million instead of US$90 million. Black will be held in a federal minimum-security prison in Florida to accommodate family visits.

An Outremont daycare was closed yesterday because of flooding caused by a marijuana-growing operation. The Yeshiva Gedola daycare on Pratt St. discovered a leak over the weekend that came from the floor above. Montreal firefighters discovered more than 1,500 marijuana plants on the second floor when they were called to investigate the leak on Saturday. No one has been arrested yet because the building was being rented by an incorporated company. Since then, the investigation has been transferred to the Montreal police drug squad.

Laval mayor Gilles Vaillancourt called yesterday for an extension of the metro line as he tabled the city's $652.8 million budget for 2008. The Laval extension opened three new stops on the orange line in May, offering an alternative to driving into the city. Vaillancourt cited the price of gas as an incentive for the extension. He said he'll ask to the province to create "a dedicated tax fund" to finance the extension.
