Your morning news roundup for Tuesday, school-starts-in-a-week August 26th 2008:

Four more ready-made sandwich brands have been taken off the shelves, but the listeriosis outbreak is still raging. The total has been updated to 26 cases, 12 of them fatal.

In the same vein, a microbiologist now claims the food bug might have become resistant to the toughest sanitation measures, which is why it was able to survive Maple Leaf factories.

As if that's anything new, our mayor Gerald Tremblay and Benoit Labonté, leader of the opposition can't get along on the Montreal-Nord events. Labonté called for a commission on public safety, calling for emergency hearings of experts on social groups in Montreal-Nord.

Bank of Montreal (BMO) shares and revenues have been plumetting as the housing slump in the US progresses. The Toronto bank posted earnings lower than expected.

Montreal will count about 100 kilometers of brand spakin' new bike paths by next year, announced Montreal mayor Gerald Tremblay.
