I happened to be walking by tonight and caught a few photos. The local press has small write ups on the inferno and can be found here, and here, and ici.
What can I say, other than it‚??s a slow news day. The local media must be down to skeleton crews for the summer, because there‚??s not a lot of reporting going on. It‚??s either because staff is playing hooky, or vacations have kicked in ‚?? but can you blame them? The summer season is in full swing, and there‚??s not a bad weather report in sight.
As for today‚??s news it‚??s, well, less than thrilling‚?¶
All three levels of government are playing a role in today‚??s media coverage. While our prime minister, Stevie Wonder, is busy cozying up to Bush at the upcoming G8 conference, his cronies back home are finding resistance to their plan to deport a Montreal woman without her daughter.
Today is National Denim Day and it‚??s not too late to donate to the cure foundation to fight breast cancer. Actually, it‚??s never too late, but if you donate before the end of today, you can truthfully explain to your boss why you‚??re wearing jeans to work (of course, if they‚??re acid wash you may have a hard time explaining that to anyone).
Generally, it‚??s a slow news day for the city. With no new hijab controversy, the press is turning its attention to the changing seasons and improving weather, which, according to la presse, is a perfect time for the criminal element to emerge from hibernation‚?¶
