The top news stories of the day in Montreal:
According to his new book, Brian Mulroney hates Lucien Bouchard because it seems Lucien betrayed him.
Newsflash Brian. You are both politicians, what can you expect? I'm sure you betrayed your share of people too in order to climb as far as you did. No one is whining about it. Seriously, get over yourself.
In other news.
Daniel Brière, a hockey player for those of you not in the know, chose to sign a contract with Philadelphia over Montreal. Two months ago. Quite a while you say? Yep, and yet....
And yet it's still front page news in Montreal that the guy went elsewhere. Feelings are hurt, I suppose, that a Quebecer would prefer somewhere else over Quebec.
I know Montrealers take their hockey seriously but this is ridiculous. It's been two (count 'em TWO) months. Stop whining! (again) Get over it!
He was quoted as commenting that if people were still upset after so long, he figured he had made the right decision. Well duh. Indeed.
The McGill subway station is in really bad shape and probably needs lots of emergency work. I'm thinking it'll probably collapse one day at rush hour, The Bay (a department store for those non-Canadians among you) will tumble into the hole and they can always blame a terrorist attack. As an add-on to this story, it would seem that a good portion of bridges and overpasses in Quebec are in dire straits. It's a matter of time before more of them collapse.
Of the three, am I the only one who thinks only the last item somewhat newsworthy?
