A look at the day’s events in and around Montreal:

Montreal speed limits to drop to 30 km/h on residential streets

Mayor Denis Coderre announced on Tuesday new safety regulations as part of project Vision Zero, which aims to increase pedestrian and cyclist safety.

Engineering, construction bosses plead guilty to collusion in Laval

The man who used to run the city of Laval’s engineering department is likely to be heading to a federal penitentiary as soon as next week, after having entered guilty pleas to the same corruption-related charges that saw the city’s former mayor incarcerated just months ago. 

Claude Deguise, 60, the city of Laval’s head of engineering between 1997 and 2008, entered guilty pleas to three charges at the Laval courthouse on Tuesday. Two other men, the heads of construction firms, also pleaded guilty to being part of the same conspiracy that, according to a statement of facts presented during a hearing before Superior Court Justice James Brunton, was part of “a system of collusion and corruption where colluding companies” agreed to pay back two per cent of the contracts they were awarded to city officials. 

Jocelyn Dufresne, the head of J. Dufresne Asphalt, pleaded guilty to conspiracy and fraud at the Palais de Justice in Laval, July 4, 2017.

Full-time students over 25 to pay reduced transit rates as of Sept. 1

As of Sept. 1, full-time students attending classes in an educational institution recognized by the Quebec government will benefit from reduced fares on Montreal-area public transit even if they’re over 25 years old.

The Autorité régionale de transport métropolitain (ARTM), the newly created agency that oversees Montreal-area mass transit, made the announcement on Tuesday and noted the move will help the estimated 30,000 full-time students over 25 who did not benefit from the existing discount.

Black man mistakenly detained by Montreal police sees profiling complaint dismissed

A Côte-des-Neiges man who was handcuffed and wrestled to the ground by Montreal police in a case of mistaken identity says he’s angry that his complaint to the Quebec police ethics commission has been dismissed.

Errol Burke said he entered a dépanneur to buy milk last February when police officers threw him to the ground, pointed their pistols at him and dragged him outside. Burke, a 54-year-old illustrator, said an officer also pinned him to a wall and then ordered him  to “shut up and stop resisting” while he was on the ground.
