Dec. 1 was International AIDS Awareness Day. Since 1985, more than 76,000 positive HIV tests have been reported to the Public Health Agency of Canada, according to the AIDS Committee of Toronto (ACT). But what does this mean to Canadians now?

Join the discussion with experts and an HIV-positive Canadian tonight.

It's foggy this morning. Drivers: Stay Calm and Headlights On.

DayStarter Commute

The Red Hill Valley Parkway is still backed up from the LINC to Queenston Rd. after an earlier single-car roll-over. Take an alternate route if you can.

The LINC heading onto the 403 Toronto-bound is moving very slowly at 8:30 a.m.

In town, Aberdeen Avenue is slow moving from Queen to the 403. Main Street from the 403 to Victoria is moving slowly, as is King Street East from Dundurn to Victoria.

On the mountain, both Fennell and Mohawk roads both ways are moving slowly from Garth to Upper Gage streets.

Another reminder to drive carefully with headlights on this morning because of the fog.

Here's a map of the ongoing construction projects around the city you might run into this morning.

It's a balmy start to December. Right now, it's zero degrees and feeling very mild.

It's not going to feel like winter for this first week of December. The temperature is expected to keep going up this week, hitting a peak of 8 C on Thursday. Arm yourself with an umbrella.
