Hoorah! Bou-Bou boo-boo corrected.

Mayor Tremblay has decided not to rename Avenue du Parc after Robert Bourassa after all: "My intention, as well as that of my caucus and the family and friends of Mr. Robert Bourassa, was solely to honour his memory, and never to generate any controversy."

I'm not so sure this is a case of the stubborn mayor coming to his senses as it is a result of the Bourassa family intervening, but, regardless, a good day for people power and whatnot.

Or... is it just more -- cue ominous buzzword -- accommodation raisonnable, as the slightly xenophobic commenters on La Presse's message board suggest.

I'm not even going to comment on the Parc thing. But did you see this?
