Monique Lacombe is hosting Radio Noon this week.

But she did make time to answer a question from one listener.

Brian McMillan sent an email asking about the de Maisonneuve bike path that runs through the Quartier des Spectacles.

The new bike path is level with the sidewalk.

The only way to tell the difference between the path and the sidewalk is by the colour of the bricks.

Last time we checked out this path, there were no signs to indicate which was which - sidewalk or bike lane. We decided to go back and see if anything's changed.

People in Cote-St-Luc are hearing the sound of train horns a lot right now -- way more often than they are used to.

It is part of a national program of whistle security testing.

We spoke to Bernard Tonchin. He is resident of Cote-St-Luc.

We also spoke to CPR spokesperson, Breanne Feigel.
