Gionta is the Canadiens’ 28th captain; the National Post notes that he’s now the shortest captain in the NHL at 5’7″. Tweets inform me he’s the second American to captain the team, Chris Chelios having been the first.

Heretically, I always wonder why we send tourists to Jean-Talon market. I love the market myself, but that’s because I have a kitchen a few minutes away. I don’t quite get the point of going there if you’re staying in a hotel room. It’s a massive resource for cooks, mostly – am I not right?
It isn’t brand new, but I’ve become aware of petluck.ca, a site for lost and found pets in the Montreal area that uses Google maps to good advantage.
It’s hard to believe that Berger Blanc, which does animal pound work for a part of the city, doesn’t even have a microchip reader to help it reunite pets with their owners, or post any information about found animals on their website. The city should insist on better services – in fact, if animals matter to you, dropping a line about this to your city councillor might be a good idea.

Andy Riga has some maps showing the Park Avenue excavations and what’s being done about them. He says the work is to take place after October 11, but that part of Park was already obstructed by repairs in mid-August.
Also, nothing is shown of the extensive closure of Bernard west of Park, blocked to traffic for street repairs: some empty storefronts are already visible along that stretch. Park has a few signs up indicating that businesses are still open, but the city ought to be helping the folks on Bernard too.

There was an oil spill in the river last night from an east-end terminal – La Presse says it’s “indeterminate” but also that the slick is more than 2.5 km long. The Gazette calls it major but says guys are out in boats trying to assess the spill – which they don’t even call oil, but the more disturbing “possibly toxic material.” CBC calls it a mix of petroleum products.
