  1. http://www.montrealgazette.com/Canada+driversdeserve+Roads+Czar/4434450/story.html I am not thinking highly of a federal office to solve problems. That said, the monies recieved from at least the federal gasoline and diesel excise tax & GST on gasoline should be invested in roads and highways and not the BS black hole it goes into currently (notwithstanding various federal-aid highway projects which seem to be common, like A-30, A-85, Montreal bridges, Calgary & Edmonton ring roads, NB Route 2 etc, the total investment is still much less than the excise revenues).

  6. Le Journal de Montréal 05/09/2007 La chaîne américaine Hooters, qui connaît du succès aux États-Unis avec son concept ailes-de-poulet-épicées-serveuses-sexy, s’apprête à faire une percée au Québec dans le marché déjà bien garni des restaurants de fast food. «Nous prévoyons ouvrir quatre restaurants d’ici à cinq ans dans la grande région de Montréal», souligne Sam Meghani, responsable du développement de la chaîne au Québec. L’investissement pourrait atteindre 5 M$, avec une moyenne de 1,2 M$ par restaurant. Il a acquis de Hooters - une chaîne de 435 restaurants basée à Atlanta - les droits commerciaux pour développer le marché québécois. Mais pourquoi le Québec? «C’était le seul territoire (province) disponible. Au Canada, toutes les provinces sont quadrillées de Hooters», répond Sam Meghani. Concept original Cet Américain d’origine pakistanaise vient tout juste de déménager au Québec pour voir à ce que le «concept Hooters», pour le moins original, soit respecté à la lettre. Dans les restaurants de la chaîne, les «filles» ont de 18 à 25 ans et sont vêtues d’un «uniforme» suggestif qui semble plaire à la clientèle masculine. Pourtant, Hooters s’affiche comme un restaurant familial qui propose à ses clients affamés des hamburgers gigantesques et des gâteaux au fromage au caramel fondant. «Nos filles n’ont pas nécessairement de grosses poitrines. Elles portent simplement des vêtements à l’image de la chaîne. Il ne se passe rien de dégradant dans nos restos», dit Sam Meghani, qui ne s’offusque pas de voir ses «filles» servir la clientèle vêtues d’une camisole et d’un short moulants. La publicité vante même «le mariage de la bonne nourriture et de la bonne bière froide servies (!) par une belle fille de Hooters». La chaîne ne manque pas d’imagination: elle propose à ses clients d’acheter le calendrier Hooters où apparaissent en tenue très légère ses employées modèles du mois. «Le calendrier Hooters: la seule façon de sortir avec l’une d’elles!», peut-on lire à l’envers du menu. Par ailleurs, les investisseurs intéressés par ce menu à la sauce américaine doivent avoir les poches bien profondes. Sur son site Internet, Hooters rappelle qu’un investisseur doit pouvoir ouvrir de trois à cinq restaurants sur son «territoire» et avoir des liquidités de 2 M$ US. Une franchise se vend 75 000 $ US, et l’investissement pour chaque restaurant varie de 800 000 $ US à 1,5 M$ US. √ Un premier restaurant de 210 places ouvrira ses portes le 17 septembre à Greenfield Park, sur la Rive-Sud.

  9. http://www.cbc.ca/m/sports/football/cfl/michael-sam-nfl-s-1st-openly-gay-draftee-signs-with-cfl-s-montreal-alouettes-1.3083647 Michael Sam, NFL's 1st openly gay draftee, signs with CFL's Montreal Alouettes Defensive end joins CFL after being cut by Cowboys, Rams 12:51 PM ET The Canadian Press media duration: 1:12play video Michael Sam signs with Alouettes VIDEO The Montreal Alouettes signed Michael Sam because they believe he can be a star rush end in the Canadian Football League. His sexuality is a non-issue, as far as general manager Jim Popp is concerned. "Michael Sam is a very good football player, and that's the reason we signed him," Popp said of Sam, who is openly gay. "He's an outstanding pass-rusher." Popp told CBC's Doug Gelevan that he thinks Sam's news teammates will accept him openly. "I think he'll be embraced," Popp said. "There's always a possibility of someone having an issue, as there always is in society. If there's any challenge with any individual, then obviously we'll get him the appropriate people to help educate. "But I think our team will be ecstatic and welcome him with no problem." Sam, a free-agent, agreed to a two-year deal. The 25-year-old is to be introduced at a news conference in Montreal on Tuesday and report to training camp the following day. "I am very excited and proud to join the Montreal Alouettes and want to thank team owner Robert Wetenhall, general manager Jim Popp and head coach Tom Higgins for this opportunity," Sam said Friday in a statement. "I cannot wait to put on the pads, get back on the field and work hard each and every day with my teammates to bring a Grey Cup to the great fans here in Montreal." The Galveston, Texas, native became a sensation when he came out before last year's NFL draft, and his NFL jerseys were an instant best-seller. When he was picked in the seventh round by St. Louis, President Barack Obama publicly congratulated Sam and the Rams, who made him the first openly gay player to be drafted for their courage. Congrats from the commish CFL commissioner Jeffrey Orridge did the same on Friday. "Congratulations to the Montreal Alouettes on the signing of Michael Sam," Orridge said in a statement. "Our players come to us from different places, different walks of life and ultimately they take different paths to get to our fields. "Today is another indication of how open and progressive the CFL is — consistent with our rich and storied history of great football tradition." Not blind to Sam's celebrity status, the team immediately put his No. 94 Alouettes jersey on sale on their website for $139.95. Sam was cut by the Rams after training camp last year. He joined the Dallas Cowboys' practice roster but was waived in October. He took another shot at landing an NFL job by attending this year's veterans combine, with no luck. The Alouettes had Sam on their negotiation list and Popp said he was in contact with him all along. The six-foot-two 260-pound Sam finally accepted a contract after completing his commitment to Dancing With The Stars. Popp said the key to landing him was patience. "Each time he was let go there were discussions," he said. "He wanted to give it one last shot at the combine." Popp said Sam was considered a "tweener" by NFL clubs, not quite the right body type to be a defensive end or an outside linebacker for that league. But he may fit perfectly in the CFL. Popp feels he can follow a similar path to Cam Wake, who was converted from linebacker to rush end when he joined the B.C. Lions in 2007. Wake had 40 sacks and was named CFL defensive player of the year in each of his two seasons with the Lions before signing with the Miami Dolphins, where he has had a successful NFL career. "If he proves [NFL] people wrong it would be great for us and I think he can do it," said Popp. Sam played four seasons for the University of Missouri Tigers in the NCAA, where he had 123 total tackles, 21 sacks and two interceptions. In his last year with Missouri he helped the Tigers beat Oklahoma State in the Cotton Bowl. sent via Tapatalk
