Motorcyclist killed in collision with drunk driver

Article content

A 52-year-old motorcyclist died Saturday in the Lanaudière region in a violent collision caused by a driver who failed an alcohol breath test.

The victim was identified by the Sûreté du Québec on Sunday as Marcel Aubry of l’Épiphanie.

According to the SQ, the collision took place at about 2:45 p.m. on Route 335 in St-Calixte, about 50 km north of Montreal.

The motorcycle was heading northbound, driving “normally,” when a car heading southbound veered into his lane, said SQ spokesperson Claude Denis. The motorcyclist was unable to avoid the collision.

The driver of the car, a 48-year-old man, was arrested for driving with diminished capacity. He was taken to a police station, where he failed a breathalyzer test. He was released with a promise to appear in court.

Horacio Arruda will earn nearly $1 million in his three-year contract

Article content continued

Since he became national health director in 2012, Arruda’s salary has increased by about 20 per cent.

In terms of hierarchy, Arruda is not at the top of the pyramid: Officially he occupies the position of assistant deputy minister of health — and yet, he earns substantially more than his immediate superior, deputy minister of health and social services Dominique Savoie. Appointed in June, she is paid $276,109 to head the largest government ministry — it has 10 assistant deputy ministers.

Savoie is paid significantly less than her predecessor, Yvan Gendron: He was paid $310,000, one of the highest salaries in Quebec’s public service.

Arruda’s compensation is nearly equivalent to that of the government’s highest-level public servant: Yves Ouellet, Secretar...

Canadiens had the matchups they wanted in Game 1 win over Penguins

Article content

TORONTO — As the Canadiens approached the start of their qualifying round series against the Pittsburgh Penguins, coach Claude Julien talked about the difficulty of matching lines because the Penguins had the last line change in the first two games of the best-of-five series.

As it turned out, his concerns were for naught.

Sidney Crosby spent most of the night playing against the Canadiens’ defensive specialist Phil Danault and young Nick Suzuki.

“I was a bit surprised,” said Danault, who was matched against Crosby for 19 faceoffs. “I know they double-shifted him a lot so I guess we were going to face each other.”

Crosby was on the ice for 30 shifts in the Penguins’ 3-2 overtime loss, but Danault also did some extra work...

Man who killed Verdun girl denied parole 26 years after the murder

Article content continued

The girl, who was babysitting for a woman Cobb knew, had been stabbed through an eye and bruises were found on her slit throat. The prosecutor in the case, André Vincent, who is now a Superior Court judge, said at the time that it was “one of the most horrible crimes I’ve ever seen.”

The violent death of a child followed by the indignity to her body shocked Montrealers. But that reaction was multiplied when media revealed that, just five weeks earlier, the Crown abandoned a murder case Cobb was charged in.

In June 1993, Cobb’s trial before a jury was well underway when Justice Henry Steinberg, the judge who was presiding over it, was suddenly promoted to the Quebec Court of Appeal. Steinberg declared a mistrial before moving on to the higher court.

“Because people will think, ‘OK, it’s fine,’ and then go crazy. It won’t be worth it.”

Gravel said she feels for people who have missed big life events during the pandemic, noting some families have been waiting to celebrate milestones or anniversaries since March.

“If I’m invited to a big ceremony that’s worth it, then yes I would go,” she said. “But I would make sure to keep my distance and make sure everything is clean.”

Steven Fagan, 71

“I think it’s the wrong choice. Actually, I think it’s insane,” said Fagan. “I mean, 250 people. How do you control their distancing from each other? You would probably need a football field in order to distance properly.”

“It’s cuckoo. It doesn’t make sense to me,” Fagan added...

“Up until that last lap everything was relatively smooth sailing,” said the six times world champion of a race with two long safety car periods. “The tires felt great.

“I heard that his (Bottas’s) tire went and I was just looking at mine and everything seemed fine. The car was still turning no problem… Those last few laps I started to back off and then just down the straight it just deflated.

“That was definitely a heart in the mouth kind of feeling…I was just praying to get around and not be too slow. I nearly didn’t get around the last few corners. Thank God we did.”

The victory was the 87th of Hamilton’s F1 career — leaving him four short of Ferrari great Michael Schumacher’s all-time record of 91 — and his third in a row...
