  1. Now, it's 2 dead (the gunman and a woman in her 20s) and 20 injured. The SPVM has just made a press conference. Quebec PM Jean Charest made one earlier in the evening. The gunman was believed to be around 25 and of Sri-Lankan origin.
  2. Hey, I have a solution while the STM waits for buses to replace the crap NovaBUS sent us in '96-99: Ask the TTC to loan us some New Looks! We might get ours back.. Seriously, maybe the STM should consider ordering from NFI and have the government and NoNovaBUS pay the bill. It would be nice to see some Inveros running here.

  5. I feel the events of 9/11 will be remembered by our generation as much as when our elders saw John F. Kennedy get assassinated on Nov. 22nd 1963. A lot of "Do you remember where you were?", and stuff like that. It is a memory that will be seared into my brain forever. I first heard of what happened at the WTC, back then I was working at McD's at Longueuil metro and our first assistant manager told us that two planes struck the towers. At first we didn't believe him, we thought he was making all this up. We had a TV in our break room so a couple of us alternated going to see what was going on. I was horrified to see the towers collapse. And I remember getting home and my ex having the TV on TVA and it was all that was on that day. The next day, I went and bought as many newspapers as I could. I think I got "Le Journal de Montréal", "La Presse", "The Gazette" and the "Globe and Mail". And later that month, I bought a special special edition of LIFE magazine. I still have them to this day. Saturday we saw "Flight 93" on A&E, last night we were watching ABC where we saw a movie depicting the events leading to 9/11 and the presidential address. I hope one day the prepertrators will be found and punished. And may the fallen heroes of that fateful day rest in peace.

  15. I've ridden RTL's 2-0101 and some other 201XXs and 20602 and also VIVA's AG300s, the first one was 5208. I like the overall ride, but I was impressed with the high back seats on the VIVA AG300s. On our first day, Nath and I rode VIVA Blue up to Newmarket to go back to the GO terminal to drive back to my cousin's and while on Yonge St. - we were sitting in the back seat - we hit some road work and hit a really big bump and Nath and I litteraly jumped up at least 6 inches from our seats! Nath almost flipped over the table and into the man that was sitting in front of her!!!

  21. They probably do. They just don't mention it. Just like on the city of Ottawa website. There must be some areas that are off limits though.
  22. What you saw a wolf??? It's loop BTW. Not that I want to nitpick or anything.
