A few more details are coming out about the shooting by police at Bonaventure metro on Friday. Officials are seeking in vain any family connections here for Farshad Mohammadi, a homeless man of Iranian origin known to several shelters around town. La Presse is soliciting information from anyone who knew him, but if he had any friends in the itinerant world it seems unlikely they’d be reading Twitter; it also seems possible he immigrated here alone and has no family to be informed of his demise.
The two officers involved in the incident have been released from hospital. It’s the second time within a year that a homeless man has been shot and killed by police.

As presaged, a protest was held Saturday night at the Bell Centre, a crowd of several hundred protesting not only the unilingual interim coach but also the prevalence of non-francophone players, English-language music at the arena and bilingual announcements made during games. I appreciate the honesty of the T-shirts shown in Le Devoir’s photo – trop d’anglos sur votre bateau. (How many is enough anglos?)
Interestingly, a French mag notes the exhibition of Paul Henderson’s Team Canada jersey from the mythic final triumphant goal scored in the 1972 Russia-Canada series. La Presse’s game report shows Henderson, Yvan Cournoyer and Vladislav Tretiak doing a ceremonial face-off at the start of the game.
