Morning Brew: March 6, 2009

Posted by Margot / March 6, 2009

Fairmount BagelFresh brewed news for March 6, 2009

You might have heard about the current uproar going on over St-Viateur and Fairmount Bagels. It seems that there's something "unenvironmental" about running wood-burning ovens 24/7, 365 days a year. Some argue it's as bad as running 9,000 cars non-stop all year. A ban on wood burning stoves is in the works, and it'll go up for public consultation later this month. Sure, I'm a fan of pulmonary health and a smog-free city, but how else are we supposed to get hot, steamy, delicious bagels at 3 o'clock in the morning?

Just when you thought this recession (there, I said it: recession) wouldn't affect you any further, Montreal Mayor Gérald Tremblay announced a $155M cut from the city's budget, with a whopping $40M being cut from transit. Let's hope STM invests a few bucks into making a "Two-Foot Express" option on Tous azimuts.

The Montreal Canadiens have called back a goalie, Marc Dénis, from the Habs' farm team, the Hamilton Bulldogs. Even though he's only played for 20 minutes this season, maybe Steel City toughened the guy up a bit. The season's not over yet.

And if you didn't get your fill of art and culture last weekend at Nuit Blanche, there's one day left to see New York-based artist Silvia Kolbowski's installation at the Leonard and Bina Ellen Art Gallery. Nothing and Everything questions the workings of culture, politics, history and the unconscious: how refreshing!

No bagels at 3am? This could be a provincial, nay, national crisis. I mean, I know we all have to do our part for the environment, but this might be where I draw the line (for all you greenies out there, that should be read with an appropriate hint of irony).

Welcome on board.

The new law wouldn't affect restaurants or the food industry, it's only for residential
