      More proof that we need to replace the police with groups who can deal with specific issues.

      It’s not every day I’ll link to a J-F Lisée column with approval, but he’s dead on target with this piece about the REM.

        A report is in on city metrics. This piece has a summary of the interesting statistics, and it’s curious how expensive our roads are. On the other side of the coin: low crime, and gradually improving reduction of trash output and enlargement of park space.

          After a temporary deal last summer, port workers are again threatening to strike.

          Also threatening to strike are school support workers in Montreal and surrounding areas.

            It sounds like a plot from a movie, but the woman who was convicted of killing an actor’s lover at their house in Longueuil in 1981 may soon be out of prison, although not quite – as the headline suggests – completely freed.

            It’s a very odd story, a young woman agreeing to carry out a hit because her druggy boyfriend couldn’t do it, later claiming she showed up at the house to offer her escort services to a couple of gay men. Odder still is that, to this day, nobody knows who originally contracted for the killing or why.
