Good morning.

Our week begins with temperatures that seem tame compared to last week's deep freeze. At 6 a.m. ET , the temperature was a reasonable -2 C but the Toronto forecast, which you can read here, calls for temperatures to fall throughout the day. It will dip to about -7 C later today and keep falling to about -18 C overnight.

In the news, a Mainstreet Technologies poll finds that 53 per cent of Torontonians back a fourth stop for the Scarborough Subway while they are split on Mayor John Tory’s decision to study garbage privatization instead of moving forward immediately. 

Also police have identified Brant Gartner, 51, as the victim of Toronto's first homicide of 2015.

Overnight, CBC overnight reporter Tony Smyth posted to Twitter about a holdup at a Mac's convenience store and some minor flooding at Kipling TTC station. Also, he found gas prices in Brampton at 78 cents a litre. You can follow Tony at (@LateNightCam).
