Your morning news roundup for Tuesday, October 23rd, 2007:

The six injured and the families of the five who died in the collapse of Highway 19 last September have opted for 1.6 million in indemnities rather than instigate long and unpredictable court proceedings. John Harbour, the president of the Société d'assurance automobile du Québec, claims that all involved were fully debriefed about their options but still chose the SAAQ's indemnity program.

Here we go again: Remember Hérouxville? The little Quebec town rose to prominence early this year for putting up an immigrant "code of conduct" that decreed, among other things, that women were not to be killed in public beatings or burned alive. Now, Town Councillor André Drouin says that religious accommodation should be stricken from the Charter of Rights. Failing that, he says, Quebec should opt for sovereignty to prioritize secularism. Drouin plans to present his views at the Bouchard-Taylor hearings this week.

News from the sidelines: The Habs crushed the Bruins in a 6-1 performance last night. (Oh, snap!) This is their second consecutive victory on home ground. The Canadiens next face the Hurricanes in Carolina on Friday, and the Penguins in Pittburgh on Saturday.

Actually Andre Drouin is a city councillor and not the mayor

This seems to happen quite a bit. Correction noted.
