Tales from Quebec that really take the cake...

Forget Sidney Crosby. This rookie actually showed himself to be a superstar in his first game with the Montreal Canadiens:
With the arena's lights dimmed, the video scoreboard showed Canadiens defenseman Sheldon Souray looking into the camera in the team's dressing room and offering encouragement to an unknown, who was obviously making his debut.

Cheers filled the rink as the familiar mascot's image was seen wearing a Canadiens uniform and grabbing a toy stick and oversized puck before racing onto the ice to the approval of the audience.

Youppi! did a circuit of the rink, dropping a puck at center ice and — doing his best Guy Lafleur impersonation — driving the slot before burying a right-handed wrist shot into the wide open net, crouching down and pumping his fist as he skated back to the bench.
And, in other news, a 20-year-old man tries to steal a whole truck of delicious Jos. Louis and May Wests:
Police chased the driver all the way to Highway 25, near Montreal, says Sûreté du Québec spokesperson Chantal Mackels.

The thief tried to use the tasty cakes in an attempt to divert police.

"The doors of the Vachon truck were still open and the thief that had stolen the truck zigzagged so that the cakes would fall out while the pursuit was going on," said Mackels.
I blame Pauline Marois for making the youth of Quebec think it's okay to smoke pot...

Does anyone really want a lucid Quebec? I prefer more of an 'I Love Lucy' Quebec, myself...
