Your ridiculously late news roundup for Tuesday, July 15th 2008:

The McGill superhospital has been delayed by at least another year, which could add tens of millions to the already exuberant cost of the project. "It's about $100,000 a day. And it's silly each time this project doesn't move forward," said Yanaï Elbaz, the MUHC's director of planning for the redevelopment. Mo' money, mo' problems, right?

The Montreal police has been ordered to pay over $60,000 in damages in a discrimination case. Three residents were mistaken for robbers after a neighbor saw the trio clearing one of the resident's garage and called 911. One officer reportedly said that "bullets don't see color", while another told one of the men to return to his own country.

Projects to enlarge a waste burial site in upstate New York has raised some serious hell in Montérégie. Residents claim that the enlargement will affect their source of drinkable water, most of which comes from small wells.

The strike in the hosting industry hit the Delta today, so to speak. All 360 employees of the major downtown hotel declared an unlimited strike at 7:30 this morning. Small strike movements in other hotels had seemed to be shorter.
