    1. 2008 GREY CUP PROGRAMMING LAUNCH LANCEMENT DE LA PROGRAMMATION DES FESTIVITÉS DE LA COUPE GREY Le Village de la Coupe Grey de retour au centre-ville Montréal, le 26 mai 2008 – Moins de six mois avant le match de la Coupe Grey à Montréal, le comité de la Coupe Grey 2008 est fier de dévoiler la programmation des festivités qui auront lieu au Village de la Coupe Grey, situé en plein cœur du centre-ville de Montréal. Des artistes québécois et canadiens de qualité dont les Porn Flakes, Kellylee Evans, Rock Story et Elevation (Hommage à U2) offriront des performances sous les chapiteaux du village entre le 19 et le 23 novembre prochain, durant la semaine de la Coupe Grey à Montréal. « Nous aurons une programmation excitante, divertissante et gratuite dans le Village de la Coupe Grey, » a déclaré le Co-Président du comité de la Coupe Grey M. Larry Smith. « Avec l’explosion de la popularité du football, nous invitons les gens de partout au Québec et au pays à participer à cette fête du football et à montrer leurs couleurs. » L’idée originale du Village de la Coupe Grey regroupant toutes les activités est de retour au même endroit qu’en 2001, soit à la Place du Canada située dans le quadrilatère des rues Peel, René-Lévesque, de la Cathédrale et de la Gauchetière. À trois endroits dans le village, on retrouvera les horloges officielles du décompte de la Coupe Grey qui n’est plus qu’à 181 jours. Parmi les autres artistes et différents spectacles gratuits présentés lors des festivités, on retrouve Véronique Labbé, Guy Bélanger, Take the Boys, White Faze, Marc Parent et Wang Dang Doodle, Angel Forrest, Young Soul et Sylvie Desgroseilliers (Motown Show). En plus des festivités du Village de la Coupe Grey, quatre événements majeurs se tiendront au cours de la semaine. Le Gala des joueurs par excellence de la LCF rendra hommage aux meilleurs joueurs de la saison 2008 de la Ligue canadienne de football et se tiendra le 20 novembre au Casino de Montréal. Le Cheer Extravaganza, le très attendu concours des cheerleaders impliquant les équipes de chacune des formations de la LCF, aura lieu au Grand Pavillon du village le 22 novembre. Le Gala Banque Scotia de la Coupe Grey aura lieu le samedi 22 novembre à la Gare Windsor. Plusieurs artistes défileront lors de cette soirée dont la chanteuse Nikki Yanofsky, le groupe de ballet Les Oiseaux du Paradis, Les Chorales et l’humoriste Sugar Sammy. Le Déjeuner des légendes, où les amateurs auront la chance de rencontrer les joueurs qui ont marqué l’histoire de la LCF, se tiendra à la salle de bal de l’Hôtel Mariott-Château Champlain 19 novembre à 9h30. Le 96e match de la Coupe Grey Un otal de 65 255 spectateurs avaient assisté à la finale en 2001 et l’objectif de l’organisation est d’éclipser le record datant de 1977 alors que 68 318 spectateurs avaient assisté à la conquête de la Coupe Grey des Alouettes sur les Eskimos d’Edmonton au Stade olympique. Près de 40 000 billets ont trouvé preneurs pour le match du 23 novembre. Les amateurs peuvent se procurer leurs billets de trois façons: 1) Sur le site internet officiel des Alouettes de Montréal: MontrealAlouettes.com 2) Par téléphone sur le réseau Admission: 1-800-361-4595 ou 514-790-1245 3) À la billetterie des Alouettes au 1260 University, 1er étage (lun. au ven., de 9h à 17h).

    4. MONTREAL - Actor Michael Douglas has volunteered to serve as the star attraction in May at a Montreal fundraiser for cancer research. Douglas has stepped forward to assist with this year's event, the 17th annual Head and Neck Cancer Fundraiser, held by the Department of Otolaryngology of the McGill University Department of Medicine. It is scheduled for May 3 at Le Windsor, on Peel St. in downtown Montreal, according to the calendar of coming events at the Jewish General Hospital - where, according to the actor's publicist, his recent case of throat cancer was diagnosed after other physicians had missed it.. "It was his very gracious offer to help us in view of his own battle with throat cancer," Dr. Saul Frenkiel was quoted Monday night by the Canadian Press news agency. Frenkiel, a head and neck surgeon who is the event's co-chairman, could not be reached for an interview by The Gazette. Douglas owns a vacation property in the Mont Tremblant resort area in the Laurentians. Tickets to the dinner have been priced at $375 each. VIP tickets are $750. © Copyright © The Montreal Gazette http://www.montrealgazette.com/entertainment/movie-guide/Michael+Douglas+star+cancer+fundraiser/4639105/story.html
    5. New broom sweeping Montreal clean INGRID PERITZ June 8, 2007 MONTREAL -- In Montreal this spring, a new army of enforcers is taking command of the streets and spreading fear in back alleys. They're tough, eagle-eyed - and armed with big brooms. The city in Canada best known for its insouciance and laissez-faire ways is suddenly aspiring to be Singapore on the St. Lawrence. This year, Montreal has declared war on trash. Besieged by criticism that downtown had become an open-air dump of litter and bulging trash bins, city hall made a clean sweep of it by adopting a bylaw on "civility, respect and cleanliness." Since last Friday, property owners downtown have become responsible for cleaning up in front of their homes and businesses. Fines start at $125 and reach $4,000 for repeat offenders. "This is probably the toughest bylaw of its kind in Canada, if not North America," said Benoît Labonté, mayor of Montreal's downtown borough. "There are no warnings, just tickets for violations. We mean business." Mr. Labonté has scheduled a news conference this morning to reveal the fruits of the new crackdown: In just seven days, the city's "trash troopers" issued about $70,000 in fines. Montreal was inspired by cities like New York and Paris, which turned around their notoriously unkempt appearance in a few years, Mr. Labonté said in an interview yesterday. "If it's good enough for New York and Paris, it's good enough for Montreal." Montreal has always had anti-trash rules on the books, but it put muscle this year into applying them: Ten more trash inspectors downtown, 189 young "cleanliness brigadiers," as well as 1,400 new garbage bins, 700 ashtrays and four solar-powered trash compactors valued at $4,700 apiece. Some people worry Montreal will get so clean it will be antiseptic. And the more cynical wonder if Mayor Gérald Tremblay isn't picking an easy target because it's a lot tougher to solve intractable problems like his woeful revenue sources. Still, many agree the city had let cleanliness slide in recent years, and civic pride with it. Complaints mounted about overflowing garbage cans, oozing back-alley dumpsters, and cigarette butts outside office buildings after no-smoking rules went into effect. "We'd let things go in the last few years, and it was visible," said Claude Rainville, head of a business development group in Montreal's Latin Quarter. "The industrial quantities of butts. The trash containers. It just wasn't welcoming." And the tough anti-litter talk isn't the only effort aimed at making Montrealers less unruly. Montreal police last year added 133 officers to its traffic squad to curb the notoriously bad habits of city drivers, cyclists and pedestrians. In the first four months of this year, police issued nearly 3,500 tickets for jaywalking, and plan to crack down on the habit through the summer, said Chief Inspector Réjean Toutant. "I understand that this is part of Montreal's culture. But that's no reason to let things go," he said. No smoking, no jaywalking, no littering - is Montreal losing its joie de vivre? Éric Montpetit, a political scientist at the University of Montreal, studied the city's litter problems and said the new efforts are long overdue. But the trash crackdown does appear to fit into a larger pattern. "Montrealers have long been the exception in Canada. We've been less disciplined and maybe a little less polite. But that wild side is also part of the city's charm," said Prof. Montpetit, who has lived in Ontario and Saskatchewan. Now, the efforts at behaviour reform may signal a shift. "Maybe," he said, "we're starting to Canadianize Montrealers."
