Newly re-elected Montreal Mayor Gérald Tremblay has vowed to clean up City Hall, partly by not attributing any new contracts until clear guidelines have been established. While many still point their fingers at Tremblay for stirring up impressive amounts of controversy, Quebec Premier Jean Charest is envisaging putting Montreal under some sort of guardianship - if it worked for Britney, why wouldn't it work for our fair city?

Last night's ADISQ Gala celebrated the diversity and creativity of Quebec musicians . The event, which was held at the Théâtre St-Denis on Sunday night, saw Ginette Reno beat out Coeur de Pirate for best album of the year. The veteran songstress was rewarded with 2 Félix awards, as was Mes Aïeux. Pierre Lapointe, Yann Perreau and Karkwa also took home one trophy each.

The H1N1 vaccination schedule might be moved up a few days to accommodate groups that are particularly vulnerable, according to Montreal public-health authorities. The shots, which were schedule to start being given on Friday, may become available to families whose members have weakened immune systems or parents of young children on Wednesday instead. For the rest of us, it's still off to December 7th.
