Yesterday, Montreal had a bit of a footballgasm. Thousands of the Alouettes' fiercest supporters poured into the downtown Montreal streets to celebrate their favorite players. The victory parade started around 11:40 AM, right around lunch time, to celebrate the Als' victory against the Saskatchewan Roughriders on Sunday, winning our fair city the Grey Cup.

Quebec's new drunk-driving measures, which brings the legal limit from 0.08 to 0.05 have been deemed insufficient by several public interest groups, including Éduc-Alcool and MADD. Both groups claim that such laws are completely useless unless police actually get tough and enforce them.

In case you didn't know, Montrealers can participate in a survey to help track the progress of the H1N1 virus online. In this survey, Montreal residents aged 18 and over are asked questions every week about their general health and the eventual presence of flu symptoms.

A Montreal study on porn and its effect on men has been ruffling a few feathers, notably in Britain (stiff upper lip, much?). Université de Montréal researcher Simon Louis Lajeunesse tried to find porn virgins - that is, men who do not watch porn - but he couldn't find any. "Guys who do not watch pornography do not exist," he said.
