CBC (and now Metro) have this story about a local musician who says his hard drives were stolen, containing “master tapes” for an album, and somehow he got them back. Cool story, bro.

Some food trucks are operating this winter, which is odd because I definitely remember the trucks had a defined season, at least at first.

Right now the city only opens emergency cold-weather shelters when it’s –27°, not a temperature we often get. A petition launched this week is asking for this to be adjusted up to –15°. I don’t even understand the quote from Matthew Pearce about preferring to force people into regular shelters when he must know some have animals which will not be accepted. The petition is here.

The truck that knocked down and killed a pedestrian on Tuesday afternoon wasn’t a FedEx van after all and the driver may not face charges.

It’s a joke, isn’t it? A cop has received a two-day suspension for bludgeoning two student protesters in 2012 who were doing nothing more than holding a banner, while a colleague pepper-sprayed them. Took ‘em nearly four years to sort that out.
In contrast, police who shot a man dead when he came at them with a knife during an intervention in a domestic dispute in May 2015 will not face charges.

Two readers have recommended another Buzzfeed piece today, a good long piece about the Montreal melon. Is somebody really growing bananas on Île Perrot? I can well believe the man in the story is growing sumac. Sumac grows all over, like weeds.
