A controversial new ticketing enforcement bylaw for "unwanted behaviour" downtown that includes loitering, spitting and swearing is back at city hall this morning. Councillors will hear a presentation this morning on what harsher enforcement will look like. Check back with CBC Hamilton as the day goes on for the latest.

And are you a Germany fan who is basking in victory this morning, or an Argentina fan wallowing in defeat? If you're the former, have a look for yourself celebrating in this gallery of people watching yesterday's World Cup final.

Here's a contender for oddest video you'll see this morning. This is a club in Europe where they hand out headphones to everyone at the door.
