Fallen pole blocking roadway Rte-138 at Rue Clément

 A traffic accident about 90 mins ago shut down the highway on both sides toward when a pole fell across the roadway. Emergency crews have just cut up the pole allowing traffic flow toward Montreal.

Those attempting to head toward Kahnawake, Laprairie and Chateauguay are still crawling toward the bridge via the roadway’s shoulder at Rte-138 near Rue Clément. Traffic is backed up, for a long, long way onto the 20 west. Crews are attempting to cut and remove the pole on the westbound side.

We suggest taking the Airlie entrance toward the bridge!

Reportedly like a Hollywood movie, a robbery  in South Shore Brossard last night has police seeking clues and information. An Garda Armoured Vehicle was in front of the RBC bank at Place Portabello on Taschereau blvd. at approximately 11 pm when two guards were confronted by 2 men reportedly wearing Halloween like masks. The two robbers were armed – one with a hunting rifle, the other with a handgun.

After pepper spraying the guards,the perps were able to immobilize the guards and steal a reported $ 431,000 dollars, although the exact count has not been determined.

“We have no description of the suspects because it happened quickly and they had their faces partially covered,” said Ghyslain Vallieres, spokesman of the Longueuil police.

The investigation continues…
