Happy Jeudi everyone. Here are today's headlines:

Andre Boisclair's leadership is under fire again from some of the PQ party's backbenchers. The Outgames organizing committee is also in some hot water for being unable to payback debts owed from last year's games. Other people in trouble: the engineers and contractors involved in the construction of the Laval overpass for not actually knowing how to construct overpasses.

There's an inauguration ceremony today for the Laval metro extension. Due to the negative Laval press above, the new subway stops probably won't be known as the Laval Underpass.

Digital art enthusiasts will be glad to hear Digital 04 Studios announced the return of the popular //ADAPT ( Advanced Digital Art Production Techniques) conference, which will hit Montreal in Sept. Check out the website for more details on the 20-some digital art masters, world famous film, vfx and videogame studios that will be attending.

If you thought the Leafs/Habs rivalry this year was exciting, wait until you see the competition heating up between the Toronto Stock Exchange and the Montreal Exchange. Grab yourself a beer hat and one of those big pointy foam fingers and cheer for your favourite options and derivatives dealer.

And finally, some sad news to finish off. The landmark Cheers bar on MacKay street declared bankruptcy yesterday. Despite owning a bar where everybody knows your name, the owner attributed revenue losses to the 2004/2005 NHL lockout, the smoking ban, and higher parking meter prices. Interestingly, the owner didn't place any blame on the hit TV show after which the bar is named, which has been off the air for over 14 years.
