Before it was brought to a halt by the pandemic, the Rivalry Series, a barnstorming tour of North America, had produced standing-room only crowds as well as strong TV ratings.

A dozen US cities just broke records for annual homicides , a feat that should shake the political establishment to its very foundations. From Toledo, Ohio to Albuquerque, New Mexico, people are having their lives cut tragically short due to cold-blooded murders, oftentimes through the cold middleman of a firearm. Twelve US cities just broke records this year for homicides , yet the bloody achievements carry a very distinctive footnote – they are all, without exception, run by Democrats.

Const. Jean-Pierre Brabant said the victim of the first homicide recorded in the city in 2022 was not known to police. Police spoke to witnesses and were looking for surveillance video from the area.

Quebec Public Security Minister Geneviève Guilbault offered her condolences on Twitter to the family of the victim. She said what is happening in Montreal is "worrying." Dedicated police units, she added, are working to reduce gun violence in the city and across Quebec.

Mayor Valérie Plante said on Twitter, "My heart goes out to the family, loved ones and friends of this young man."

He is the fifth young person to die violently in less than a year in Montreal.

In early December, Hani Ouahdi, 20, was gunned down in a car in the city's east-end Anjou district. In mid-November, Thomas Trudel, 16, was shot in the city's St-Michel borough as he walked home from a park.

Jannai Dopwell-Bailey, 16, died after being stabbed outside his school in October. Two people have been arrested in his death. And last February, Meriem Boundaoui, 15, of La Prairie, Que., was killed in a drive-by shooting in the St-Leonard borough.
