Man attacked after telling men not to tear branches from park tree

A 26-year old man is said to be in stable condition after an attack at Mount Royal park.

Police say he was attacked by three men, punched and kicked, after he told them to stop tearing breanches from a tree.

"The victim was found lying on the ground by police officers. He was transported to the hospital in serious condition with serious injuries to the upper body", said police spokesman Francois Collard.

The suspects were still at large.

    Kudos to the man trying to stop those guys, however you can't interfere with 3 idiots and not expect a fight. Just call 9-1-1.

  • 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.
