Your morning news roundup for Monday, July 21st, 2008:

Think you're in the wrong program? Consider becoming a driver for the Montreal Transit Corp. Some doubled their salaries last year and made up to $100,000 with overtime pay. The MTC spent $1.87 million on the latter in 2007; the normal maximum salary for a driver or metro operator is $50, 729.

Paul McCartney doesn't speak french. Nonetheless, he made the effort to address 200,000 over-joyous fans in french on the Plains d'Abraham, played 'Michelle' and led the two hour singalong with candor. It's with music that we connect, not conquer...but still, The Star has to write an arrogant headline after all that hooplah about re-stirring 1760 sentiments.

If you're missing a meter-long python, it's been found - under 31 year-old woman's bed. 'Oh no, the snake got out...', hmm, maybe you should question your snake-owning abilities?

The premiers have agreed: it's time to cut back on the megawatts. They've pledged to increase energy efficiency by 20% by 2020.

"The Star" wrote an arrogant headline? Which Star? The Montreal Star folded in 1979...

Oh, I see, the TORONTO Star. Since this isn't a Toronto website, you might want to make that more explicit... ;-)
