Your morning news roundup for Thursday, August 7th 2008:

Yes, ladies and gentlemen. After the Radiohead show, life picks right back up.

Photo radars will be installed at 15 key intersections across Quebec, and more may follow. According to premier Jean Charest, Quebec drivers need a wake up call, that more tickets and higher fines have not been able to provide. Charest also pointed to the 32 road victims of the construction holidays, a number equaled only once in the past 8 years.

Our very own Cirque du Soleil has sold 20% of its parts to Dubai investors. The buyers, Istithmar World Capital and Nakheel PJSC, are both units of government-owned Dubai World.

A 24-year-old man is in hospital after an argument with a neighbour over the volume at which he played his music ended with him being struck in the head with a machete.

After "Bon Cop Bad Cop", Quebec and Ontario will be sharing again, and this time, it's a $45 million jackpot two residents will be sharing. A ticket sold in northern Ontario and one sold in Quebec will split the $45.1-million Lotto 6/49 jackpot, tied for the second-largest draw in Canada.

Montreal's Metro Inc. plans to spend $200 million to switch the names of a number of popular Ontario grocery chains over to its flagship Metro brand.
