ok thank you, those are the 2 i have been watching. I also sent a pm to Don, i dont know how they do it there but we have news at 11pm and it is all the news that went on that day. Do you know if they have like a newspaper online with accidents deaths ect. I know we do but i am unsure if they do. I will keep my eye open if they do

..so you passed the Biosphere over the Cartier Bridge, turned left on Viger Av? Chinatown in Montreal is a few blocks away. This doesn't strike me a rough area, McGill University is right around the corner!

um i went over the bridge saw the bio and the amusmant park. Went down a that road (maybe like 10 blocks) took a left (it was a shopping style street). Then after this all happened i went a few more blocks and took another left and drove like another minute and was in chinatown.

Wow, well, its possible there have been no reports as the cops may want to hold a press conference. But, much to my amazement, there isn't even a headline.

It didnt strike me as a rough area either minus all the homeless people beggin for money. Seemed nice, i dont know if it was a car jacking or what. But i know the escalade was very nice and both the driver and person with the gun (back seat) were hispanic. They drove right by me at only a few MPH and i saw them, the driver was swirving all over hitting cars and as soon as he was next to me we heard the gun shot and i saw the window literally explode and blood and then i saw the car hitting all kinds of cars sided to side and then went right up on the sidewalk and hit alot of people.

Right on. Thats how it should be.

Seriously though, I've not seen anything online yet. And the Gazette had stories updated as early as 5 mins ago! I'll check it out on the news later if anything comes up.

Well partially that is because when my car is running i am at the track every weekend and they pretty much know me (probably the reason)


If i see anything or can get any information i will send it your way. I am sure there will be something on it. I am not sure how it works in canada, but i know here if something like that happened there would be something out about 3-5 hours after it happen (just like a headline). Then the next morning there would be about a line about it, and then a pres conference that day where details would be released.
