Morning Brew: April 22, 2009

Fresh brewed news for Wednesday, April 22, 2009

Happy Earth Day! How will you celebrate la Dame Nature? You could see the Disney Earth movie, which opens in theatres today. You can check out some Earth Day festivities at Jour de la Terre. Or you could plant a tree or otherwise try to help green up our earthly habitat, since it seems like we need it.

Quebec was ranked 9 out of 13 in an environmental report card for Canadian provinces and territories--behind Alberta. The report looked at factors such as transportation, energy consumption, biodiversity and green jobs. Quebec lost points for a leaky water supply system, but in the air quality category, gas-guzzling Albertans came dead last.

"Everything is possible," said Habs Captain Saku Koivu. And many Montrealers want to believe it. Tonight the Canadiens have to dig themselves out of a 3-0 hole against the Boston Bruins, or else kiss their silver centennial goodbye. Don't be surprised if you see CH flags flying at half mast on car windows tonight.

Some downtown merchants are preparing for much worse. A few store owners are closing early and papering their windows to avoid tempting disgruntled fans and/or lawless hooligans from looting their stores. Last spring, after a playoff win against the Bruins, a riot erupted on St. Catherine Street damaging dozens of cars and storefronts. Do you think there'll be a post-game riot?
