      The shooting death of 15-year-old Meriem Boundaoui two years ago, as she sat in a friend’s car, came about because of an ongoing dispute about parking spaces between two families, one owning a store and the other a barbershop, on Jean‑Talon East in St‑Michel.

        Cadillac Fairview’s notion to develop a dense residential project on part of its massive Fairview parking lot – handy to the REM and the highway – has met the refusal of Pointe Claire city hall to countenance any such densification because it will increase traffic.

          Maybe my neighbourhood has been spared, but I don’t see the kind of snow that was forecast or that’s being reported elsewhere in town.

            Ditto at my place near the UdeM metro station about halfway up the mountain in Côte-des-Neiges, which, as it name implies, is usually one of the snowier parts of the city. A very stiff breeze has the treetops swaying, however.

            Next to nothing over here (Longueuil), but the day is young.

            The overall forecast was between Wed overnight and Fri around 5 am, but overnight I got maybe 2. Wasn’t even so windy in the morning. Can’t say I’m disappointed.
