Morning Brew: May 8, 2009

Do you ever wonder where your tax dollars are going? You might be as annoyed as the next person if you heard about the alleged quarter million dollar public funds investment in a hotel for pets, instead of being used for regional development in the Eastern Townships. Maybe we could attract clientele like the world's oldest dog.

Speaking of public funds: remember that time taxpayers' money finally finished paying for that (arguably beauteous) monstrosity of an Olympic Stadium? It should be a fresh memory, since it was only two years ago. But it turns out that another $400M needs to be invested in it just to keep the place from falling down. Awesome planning, eh?

Last weekend to see
This Haiku exhibition
Some syllabic fun

And on the cusp of being newsworthy (but relatively interesting nonetheless): off-island telephone subscribers will soon share in the 438 area code, since 514-numbers were fast running out. Gone are the days when the "514" was implied, but I'm sure we'll get used to it eventually - we did with 450, right?

Thanks to Midnight Poutine Flickr pooler Humanoide for the adorable photo.
