Fire damages downtown restaurant

A fire damaged a restaurant on Ste-Catherine near St-Dominique overnight. (Same brief CP story in English and French.)

When you read old issues of the Gazette, a news story like this would at least give the name of the restaurant. Stories about individuals often even gave their addresses. I wonder when it became standard procedure to be so coy about this kind of detail. I can see not mentioning where a person lives, but this minor story is hardly news if we can’t even be told where it happened.
