Hey, why walk when you can steal a ride?

Four teenage car thieves in Winnipeg, Manitoba, decided it was too cold to walk to their counselling session (on why they should stop stealing cars!) so they stole a car for the ride. [Canwest News Service]

Three of the four alleged chronic car thieves were arrested shortly after exiting the Winnipeg Training for Youth program where they had spent the morning learning why it's wrong to steal cars.

But what's a teen to do in the deep freeze for which Winnipeg is world-renowned? Shiver in the cold while walking, or waiting for public transport? At least they were up and about. Many teens would prefer to stay snug and warm in bed for the morning.
