daily-aggregation1. SGI APPLIES TO RAISE INSURANCE RATES The crown company wants a 5.2 per cent increase. But what happens when the increase gets to 100 per cent? Huh? What then? Do they really think drivers will pay 100 per cent of their money to the crown? I don’t THINK so.

2. MORE ON YESTERDAY’S CASINO FIGHT Here’s the StarPhoenix’s Joe Couture’s story, and, if you missed it, here’s some nonsense I wrote. Meanwhile, FSIN Chief Perry Bellegarde isn’t giving up on the idea. I dunno, I kinda want to hear more about it too.

3. BABY BORN TO BRAIN-DEAD MOM Can’t imagine what this experience would do to the father. Cheers to him, R.I.P. to the poor mom.

8. HIPSTER BEER! Hmm, I can hear John Cameron saying “good body drunk” in my head…
