City councillors in Côte-des-Neiges–Notre-Dame-de-Grâce want to regulate Airbnb’s in the borough. Ensemble Montreal Leader Lionel Perez and independant Marvin Rotrand will present their motion during the next borough council meeting.

Airbnbs are not as prevalent in the borough as they are in the Plateau or Downtown. This preventative measure aims to prepare administrators to tackle the issue before it becomes a problem.

Borough Mayor Sue Montgomery also supports regulations of Airbnbs but has not commented on this specific motion.



Thousands of immigration applications could be purged by the Quebec government.

The new bill proposed by the CAQ would overhaul Quebec immigration law. Approximately 18 000 applicants dating as far back as 2005 would have their immigration requests eliminated.

The government will also have to reimburse approximately 19 million dollars in application fees.

Premier Legault had previously stated the backlog would be taken care of under current immigration laws.



Serial killer Bruce McArthur has been sentence to life in prison. McArthur had pled guilty to the murder of eight men, which occurred between 2010 and 2017. He targeted men of Toronto’s Gay Village.

McArthur will be eligible for parole after 25 years, when he is 91 years old. However, Justice McMahon told the court there is little chance he would ever be granted parole.
