You may have already seen this Star Trek: TNG cast reunion pic taken at Montreal Comic-Con. But has anyone Photoshopped William Shatner’s sad, photo-bombing face into other photos, Where’s Waldo styles? Because they really should.
Probe launched after cops prevented patients from reaching ER because FOOTBALL NO ONE CARES ABOUT EVEN
David van Frank took his father to the Royal Victoria Hospital early Sunday but couldn’t get his car through the police roadblocks in place for the Montreal Alouettes game at the Percival Molson Stadium. During Alouettes games, police bar access to Pine Ave. and the streets around Percival Molson Stadium to all non-emergency vehicles.
Though van Frank and his father were within one block of the hospital, police initially refused to escort their vehicle a few hundred metres to the emergency room.
“My mother can’t walk more than 50 feet without having to sit down for a half an hour. I tried to explain that to police and they were having none of it,” said Witteron. “My mother is pale, white as a ghost, she has no hair and you’re going to make her walk 500 feet? Come on. The cops wouldn’t even listen to us.”
Are we done yet? Because this really is the day that keeps on giving, news-wise. There’s barely time to complain about the cold snap or stupid new batch of freshmen.
Family doctors looking for 3,000 EFFING PATIENTS
Are you one of the 50,000 Montrealers waiting for a family doctor? Did you know the average wait time is 295 days?
Since it completed its expansion on September 2, the Victoria-Square medical centre has been ready to take close to 3,000 patients.
The director of the centre Judith Bélanger says they contacted Montreal’s health agency months ago, but still haven’t received a patient from the waiting list.
“We thought we would open the doors and people would rush into the clinic but it hasn’t been the case at all,” Bélanger said.
It was jurisdictional confusion over who manages the wait list that caused the delay.
Call it, doctor. Time of death: 10.30 a.m. Cause of death: Jurisdictional confusion.
Someone looked at the art chairs by Lafontaine and thought: You know what would make these better? My entire collection of books by that lady who single-handedly founded the neanderthal-erotica genre. And they were totally right.
Background checks promised after taxi drivers accused of sexual assault OH COOL YOU 'PROMISE' WELL ALL RIGHT THEN
There’s a law in place that says “no person may obtain, maintain, or renew a taxi driver’s permit if the person has been convicted in the last five years of an indictable or criminal offence,” but there is no province-wide standard for background checks in place so the law isn’t being enforced.
In fact many years ago the provincial government off-loaded responsibility for taxis onto local municipalities, and Montreal has its own Taxi Bureau responsible for inspecting taxis and issuing permits.
Quebec’s Transport Minister Robert Poeti is laying some of the blame on the previous Parti Quebecois government.
"I was very surprised that in the last two years no one was working on that," said Poeti.
Out of 11,000 taxi drivers in Montreal, only 3,000 have had background checks.
Wait… wait… I thought you guys were working on that? No?? Oh man… Well then that is surprising. Someone should, like, definitely… get on it. Because, assaults…
Montreal! Where people will steal your heart, your wallet, your bike and your artwork – right off the wall, too!
This piece (in the middle with the dark background) by artist Travis McEwan was stolen yesterday from Galerie LaCentrale Powerhouse on Saint-Laurent. So keep your ear to the ground and your eyes peeled! Though really, isn’t the kind of jerk who’d do this the same kind of douche who’d openly brag about it to anyone who’ll listen? Probably drunk, explaining that stealing it was actually a work of art in itself, and also, would you accept it as payment for coke?
Maybe it’s even the brave genius who scrawled this the other week.
Dan Savage gives a shout out to Just For Laughs Gags in this episode of the Savage Lovecast. Before you cancel your Magnum subscription, note that he admits he really only watches it while stoned and mostly just to marvel over how it could never get made in the United States — not without someone getting shot.
