Long lines for pre-bought Big O baseball tickets

There were long lineups for people who bought online tickets to Friday night's pre-seaon baseball game at the Big 0.

The Jays took on the Mets in one of two games in Montreal.

Tickets had to be printed at the stadium, but fans said there were only four kiosks where they could do that and they felt it was taking forever.

One ticket buyer says he got to the Big O early, waited for an hour and the line barely moved.

He says he left the line at 7:15, fifteen minutes after the opening pitch.

CJAD News went to the Big 0 Saturday just before the start of a second pre-seaon game between the Jays and Mets.

There didn't seem to be any extraordinary lineups.

    A popular Cote St. Luc seniors drop-in centre will stay open, at least for now.

    The Montreal Gazette reported Saturday that the Caregiver Support Centre in the Cavendish Mall, which was supposed to close at the end of the month, had a late Friday reprieve from the health authority.

    Meanwhile the paper reports Cote St. Luc Mayor Anthony Housefather and Hampstead Mayor Bill Steinberg will meet next week to see if they can arrange alternate west-end facilities for the 40 seniors who use the centre.

    It's still not known if the decision is permanent, but certainly a relief for family members and caregivers who desperately want to keep their loved ones in their own community.
