Montreal’s Mayor Denis Coderre announced new safety recommendations aimed at improving the use of the roads on Monday.

According to CBC, the recommendations include allowing cyclists to use sidewalks in some situations and permitting the Idaho stop.

The recommendations also include increasing the fine for opening car doors when cyclists are near and for cyclists who break the law rather than giving them demerit points.

Making helmets and snow tires mandatory and Idaho stops at red lights were not included in the recommendations.

Montreal Homeowners will no longer have to pay for repairs caused by water or sewage pipelines on city property.

According to the Montreal Gazette, the old bylaw had cost multiple homeowners tens of thousands of dollars, including one NDG resident who had to pay roughly 30, 000 dollars to repair a sewage pipe 50 feet from his property.

Projet Montreal recommended the city assume responsibility for the repairs with homeownwers paying only 5, 000 dollars. 

In turn, Montreal's executive committee decided to have the city assume all costs instead, as long as the damage was not caused by the negligence of the homeowner.

Quebec began discussions on a possible animal welfare bill that would advocate for animal abusers to be jailed on Monday.

According to the CBC, the bill, known as Bill 54, would improve the rights of animals and make any offenders of the incoming animal cruelty laws face 18 months of jail time and fines of $750,000.

The bill could potentially make certain halal butchering techniques illegal, as the slow death of animals will not be tolerated.

Quebec has received criticism for giving unfavourable conditions to animals, notably through puppy mills.

The former cardiologist Guy Turcotte will undergo a second trial starting Monday, September 14th, for the murder of his two young children. 

According to CTV News, Turcotte was accused of murdering his 5-year-old son and 3-year-old daughter in 2009. He was declared to be not criminally responsible for his children's murder during the first trial in 2011. 

Quebec's Court of Appeal overruled that verdict and demanded a new one. He was later treated at the Philippe-Pinel Institute where he was released in September 2014. 

The trial will take place in a court house in St-Jerome, and is expected to last several months.

Exterminators say that Montreal's bedbug infestations are out of control and that they can hardly keep up with the demand.

According to CBC, Maheu Extermination Ltée specialist Harold Leavey says he would have one or two bedbug cases a year back in 2000, but now it is up to 50 or 100 cases a day.

Exterminators are also saying that bedbugs have become more resistant to the chemicals used to kill them, meaning more visits are necessary to fully eliminate the infestation.

'Love and Mercy' captures the musical talent of Brian Wilson

Directed by Bill Pohlad

There is no doubt that Brian Wilson is both extremely talented and an individual who is hurting deep down, as seen in Bill Pohlad's new film, Love & Mercy. The film succeeds at telling Brian Wilson's story, but at times the editing is very choppy. Paul Dano is convincing as a young Brain Wilson, however there are some issues with seeing John Cusack as a much older Brian Wilson. The songs are all there as they go through the surfer-boys phase, right up too Brain Wilson's Smile. Yes, Love & Mercy captures the musical talent of Brian Wilson and his personal issues, however it lacks the social background of the era.

Car owners in Repentigny found their vehicles vandalized over the Labour Day weekend with stickers carrying anti-Islamic hatred.

According to CBC News, among the many stickers included one that had an emblem of the Muslim brotherhood, and another with a message threatening people to convert to Islam, claiming that Quebec is Allah's land. 

A member of a local Islamic advocacy group believes the vandalism was done in poor taste to provoke fear against Muslims.

Repentigny police have increased patrolling around the town to prevent a repeat of the incident

A zoning change that would allow a ten storey complex to be built near the MUHC super-hospital was met with concern during a consultation on Wednesday.

According to the Montreal Gazette, the complex would house a Provigo, a Seniors residence and allow for apartments to be donated to the Children's Hospital Foundation to be used by families of hospitalized Children.

However, some residents near the site on the corner of Ste-Catherine and de Maisonneuve expressed concern over the possible increase in traffic and pollution if the complex was built – while others stated it is already bumper-to-bumper and pollution could not increase.
