  10. My parents can not stand Old Montreal, anymore and they have been living here since May. They are planning on moving back to the West Island in about 24 months. I told them about prefab homes. My mother was like, those do not work here seeing you need a basement. My father was like you do not need one. So my question is, do you need a basement or can you have something above ground and nothing under?

Jackson considered moving to Montreal, according to new tell-all book Source: InMusic MONTREAL - A new book about pop icon Michael Jackson's final years says the singer once considered moving to Montreal because polls indicated Quebecers rejected child abuse allegations made against him.

  17. Having read of so many horrible experiences with immigration laws and officers, I always thought those things only happened to those who did not do their paperwork right or who did not meet the immigration requirements. Apparently I was wrong. My experience is nothing compared to the one of the Mexican mother who's all over the news lately, but what makes my case interesting is that the law is clearly on my side, and so are the Citizenship and Immigration Canada agents, yet there doesn't seem to be anything I or they can do about it, and I have to leave Canada soon with no right of appeal.
  18. Paul Russell: I'm from Montreal, not Montréal Tuesday's Post carried a small story about a federal policy that bans Canadians from listing "Jerusalem, Israel," as their birthplace on their passports, due to the ongoing conflict between Israelis and Palestinians over the control of the city. This letter from a reader attempted to bring the issue to our shores. Never mind “Jerusalem, Israel,” just try getting “Montreal” listed as a place of birth in a Canadian passport. I was told by the pleasant passport clerk last time I applied that the city’s name is not spelled that way; "it’s

Fedex again tried to change the address but couldn't and told me to contact BrightPoint to send them a fax for a change of address. I called BrightPoint and they said they can't do that seeing the product in transit. Called up Fedex again to tell them what was going on. One person said I need a utility bill to pick up the package in Burlington

Westmount neighbours battle over scenic view JAN RAVENSBERGEN, The Gazette Published: 6 hours ago Anytime a Westmount homeowner wants to renovate part of a building or add an extension, their plans are considered confidential - and not the business of any of their neighbours. That's longtime Westmount policy, architect Julia Gersovitz, chairperson since 2001 of the municipality's powerful planning advisory committee, testified in Quebec Superior Court yesterday. Other than Westmount urban-planning staff, city councillors and
  21. Yesterday I realized my METRO (Van-Horne at Darlington) is selling lots of expired products (like cheese that expired three months ago). I always check and this had rarely happened before, but a large amount of the products I checked yesterday were expired. Then when I went to return a particular product which escaped my obsessive checking, I realized that about 10+ items (more than half of the items) of that product were expired. I put them in a cart and took them all to the cashier, who was all like "ohhhhhh, you didn't have to do this". I told her that I did it for the people, not for the s
