Your morning news roundup for Wednesday, October 17th, 2007:

Put on your election hats: Stephen Harper's Conservative government unveiled its priorities yesterday night in a throne speech that underlined major tax cuts, extending the Afghan mission until 2011, and new crime legislation. Although the Conservatives plan to reduce greenhouse gases by 2050, they declared the Kyoto Protocol "dead." (Good one, guys...good one.)

Marie Cinq-Mars has been named as Outremont's new interim mayoress following the recent booze scandal, in which former borough mayor Stéphane Harbour and his council were accused of racking up thousands in dollars in alcohol and entertainment expenses.

Pocket money: George Gillett, the owner of the Habs and the Bell Centre the team calls home, claims that the city is overtaxing him. The Bell Centre is valuated at $225 million, but Gillett insists it is only worth $75 million. When he faces off against the city in court, he plans to ask for $32 million in tax refunds.

Ex-PQ leader André Boisclair confirmed Monday that he is quitting politics. He will officially resign as MNA for Pointe-aux-Trembles on November 15 to pursue work in the private sector. The surprise resignation comes in the wake of a party nosedive in the March 26 election, which led to a public quarrel with BQ leader Gilles Duceppe and party infighting.
