    Fifteen bars in the Quartier Latin will be allowed to stay open till 6 am Saturday morning in an effort to give a push to night life in the area.

      If you consider late-night stabbings “push”, sure. That’s not a very safe area even at the best of times, let alone drunk off your ass as the sun rises.

      It will be interesting to see if the 3:00AM fights and stabbings shift to 6:00AM. I have a feeling, though, that most of the stabbers will be home in bed at 6:00AM.

      No, that’s what cocaine is for.

      I have never thought of the Latin Quarter as being anywhere close to unsafe.

    An STM bus piled into a parked pickup truck Thursday night in RDP because, it’s alleged, the driver fell asleep at the wheel.

      Metro has posted video of the four visits of Queen Elizabeth to Montreal.

      The Journal has a surprising sheaf of stories: what a coronation is like, how Charles will be proclaimed king Saturday, the political impact of the change. A tacit admission is made that even if people say the monarchy doesn’t matter, if nothing else, the monarch marks their era. Their lives and major milestones act as a kind of common yardstick.

      Whatever else happens, 2022 will be remembered by many as the year Elizabeth died.

      Le Devoir looks forward to shaking off some of the royal symbolism it feels unsuitable here, although it also has a piece on the Queen’s immutable personal style.

      CBC outlines what will happen about the Queen’s funeral and other rituals.
