Five things you need to know
1. Yogurt is causing a real mess on a Toronto highway
Toronto commuters were delayed today, but not by your typical accident. A transport truck carrying a full load of yogurt crashed on Hwy 401 and when it did, out came the yogurt. The busy highway was littered with yogurt. Unsurprisingly, there were huge delays for hours as crews scrambled to clean up the mess.
