  1. Quebec will sue big tobacco, health minister says

  3. Gilles Duceppe insists he's finished with politics

    Former Bloc Québécois leader Gilles Duceppe has announced he won't be returning to politics nor joining the Parti Québécois ranks, as rumoured.

  4. Dog electrocuted in Montreal's Outremont

    An apparent electrical malfunction in Montreal's Outremont neighbourhood has killed a dog and injured another.

  5. ADQ votes for CAQ merger

    Quebec's most popular political party has officially joined forces with another, smaller party - the Action démocratique du Québec.
