UPDATE: Man in critical condition after Plateau shooting

A 28-year-old man is fighting for his life and remains in critical condition after being shot on St-Hubert St. near Mont-Royal Ave. last night.

Montreal police spokesperson Daniel Lacoursière said residents heard gunshots around 7:50 pm.

They were able to see a man from their window sitting in his car covered in blood.

Officers arrived on the scene shortly after and found the man in his car.

Lacoursière said the victim was shot at least once in the upper body.

"This incident may be related to a [drug dealing] affair, and we're going to follow the health condition of the man in the next [few] hours," he said.

Lacoursière added there have been no arrests made. Police are currently canvassing the area looking for clues.

  • Recycling deposit error headache for Montreal dad

    Just in time for school to start up again, Five Alive juice boxes are on sale at Loblaws and Maxis across town. If you've bought any of these products a CJAD listener warns: check your receipts, you may have paid an unjustified fee.

    A listener emailed us at yourstory@cjad.com to share his experience.

    Over the past few weeks, local dad Alfonso bought his kids packages of juice boxes from 2 different Maxis and a Loblaws in Montreal.

    The grocery stores charged him an extra 5 cents recycling deposit for each juice box - the trouble is, customers can't return juice boxes to reclaim their deposit like with cans or bottles.

    Gomez, a representative from the Office de la protection du consommateur, says Carlos should report the incident to them.

    "We can not all the time do single cases, but if you call us we keep the information," said Gomez. "If many contact us about the issue then we may do an investigation. We have to pick our fights."

    The Loblaws corporation says it is aware of the situation and claims it was simply an error.

    A Maxi employee says the grocer offered to refund the extra fees if customers bring in their receipts, but Loblaws still won't accept juice boxes in return for past charged deposits.
