Montreal Stories.

Le Journal de Montreal may not be the best newspaper in the world, but its reporters have their ear to the ground and come up with some really great human interest stories.

I liked this one from a couple of weeks ago, about a woman riding the Metro for the second time... 40 years after her first ride.

Then, I liked this one about Joseph Lamontagne, panhandler at the corner of Notre Dame and Iberville who has just turned 65... and so is retiring now that's he's eligible for his old age pension.

[h/t to Kate, who reads Le Journal so we don't have to...]
