Oddments from my news trawl

Oddments from my trawls through the feeds: the Robb Report on places to eat in town; Alan Hustak seems to be writing a potted history of the city for the Suburban, because this piece is labelled Chapter 1; Radio-Canada looks back at Jean Drapeau’s crazy scheme to borrow the Eiffel Tower for Expo 67 – text and audio; Gabriel Deschambault has a nice piece on Pamplemousse about Luc Laporte, who gave us the interiors of Lux, Laloux and L’Express; St‑Henri is getting a new bookstore, while the owner of Librairie de Verdun is planning to open a new branch in Lachine.
