    The city promised new social housing several years ago but has not been able to get started because of feeble provincial support. Now they’ve got some mitigation of the AccèsLogis rules that may unlock some extra funds to face inflation – but there’s still no news of new project starts.

      There were two homicides on Tuesday night, one in St‑Laurent, the other in Ahuntsic.

      Update: Radio-Canada says that the SPVM thinks the two killings may be linked.

      TVA says in the article linked above that the first victim, a 64‑year‑old man, is known to police, but QMI contradicts itself with this Journal piece saying the shootings were random.

      Another update says the older man killed in St‑Laurent was the father of boxer David Lemieux.

        Saying someone is known to police is just saying either they’ve been under investigation or they have a judicial record of some sort. You can have the latter, not be involved in any current criminal activity and be randomly involved.

        In this case, it mostly seems to mean the cops knew who he was – that boxer’s father. Nothing in any report says M. Lemieux had any judicial history.
