2017 seen through Garnotte’s eyes

Le Devoir gives us 2017 as seen by editorial cartoonist Garnotte; the Gazette also revisits the notable local news stories.

CTV lists out the 24 homicides of the year, some with more detail than others. The discrepancy between the 22 homicides noted here on the blog and the final number was due to police adding two suspicious deaths from 2016 to the total.

CBC has a quite tricky quiz about events in 2017.

Le Devoir posts a flash review of Bye-Bye and Infoman.

CBC also asks whether the celebrations of the city’s 375th were a success. It seems that participants generally felt satisfied with the events, but my feeling is still that there wouldn’t’ve been such a fuss if Denis Coderre hadn’t intended to use it as a springboard for re‑election.
