Your morning news roundup with a new brewer.

The ADQ, led by Mario Dumont, was trumped during the by-elections held yesterday in three Quebec ridings. According to preliminary results, he was even less popular than the Green Party. Péquiste Nicole Léger was re-elected in Pointe-aux-Trembles and Liberal Maryse Gaudreault won Hull over, while PQ runner-up Maka Kotto was elected in Bourget.

Richard Doucet, the Selwyn House teacher who was arrested on charges of sollicitation and possession of kiddie porn, is set to appear in a Virginia court on June 9. Virginia police say there might be more charges added when they finish running through the information on his laptop computer. In the meantime, Montreal police is still encouraging whoever has information to come forward.

For all of you who drive yourselves to work or school, there is hope. Industry minister Jim Pentice promised to keep an eye on crook gas vendors to make sure customers aren't shortchanged or given less fuel than they paid for. "Fines will be increased from $1,000 per occurrence to $10,000 per occurrence," Pentice said. According to the Ottawa Citizen, 5% of all gas station pumps inspected dispensed less fuel than they should have, and 30% shortchanged customers.
