    A 150-year-old house collapsed on St‑Christophe on Friday. It had sustained a fire earlier this year.

    It had been rather a handsome little house at one time.

      STM buses will have to skirt around the COP15 security perimeter and this is starting next week, even though the event itself only runs from December 7‑19.

      A chunk of lower downtown (map’s in the article) will be off limits to transit, and as of December 1st, Place‑d’Armes station will also be closed, and will be bypassed by trains. STM page.

        Three people were shot near Collège Montmorency in Laval (TVA makes it four people) Friday evening and the school was locked down. La Presse says at least one of the victims was in a street gang.

        Montmorency wasn’t even the only CEGEP locked down on Friday. In St‑Jean‑sur‑Richelieu earlier Friday, police told students to barricade themselves in and the school was locked down for seven hours. There was one arrest, although no weapons were eventually found.

          The St-Jean story is bizzare. The kid had been wearing a bullet proof vest to school since the beginning of the year. No one said anything, everyone thought “someone else” had vetted the situation and it was all “A-OK” (it’s not exactly bystander apathy). Ten weeks into the semester, with the kid wearing the vest every day, someone notices (freaks out?) and calls the cops.
          I can’t reason if the cops should have been called on the first day or not. When does tolerance become apaty?
