On Thursday, January 02, 2014, an article was published on CTV news regarding a homeless man being threatened by a police officer that he will tie him to a pole outside in -30°C. The incident took place around 3: 00 p.m. on January 02 outside of Jean Talon metro station.  A 52 second video was posted online by a YouTube user in the name of Omar Tunisiano. The video ends with the cameraman speaking up for the homeless man. This video was seen by the Mayor Denis Coderre and he tweeted his reaction.

When I look around any classroom that I am in all I see is boredom, yawning, students falling asleep or in my case, sitting there looking but not listening. All we do is SIT.

Energy drinks are not needed for those who workout at an average level for their age.
