Here’s what happened while you were trying to stay warm.

Montreal police have issued an arrest warrant in the case of a homeless, pregnant Inuit woman who says she was sexually assaulted in an alley off Park Ave. last week. 

Officers at Station 38 are actively looking for him.

The woman, 27, reported the assault and identified her alleged assailant on Dec. 6, but police merely questioned and released him on the spot. No one took an official statement from the victim, according to three witnesses. 

The 27-year-old says her assailant found her hours after his release and threatened to stab her. She told the Montreal Gazette she saw the suspect again on Thursday morning and ran away.

David Chapman runs a homeless shelter that pressured police to take action in the victim’s case. He says that sexual assault against homeless Indigenous women is alarmingly common on the streets of Montreal.

Of the 19 women who have reported being assaulted to Chapman since 2017, only one has seen their assailant charged.


It wasn’t pretty, but the Canadiens got back on the winning track as they outlasted the Carolina Hurricanes 6-4 Thursday night in a game that featured seven goals in the see-saw third period.

“It was a bit wild and it’s not the way you want to play in the third period, but it’s good to get the points to kick off these games at home,” said defenceman Jeff Petry, who scored two goals, including an empty-netter to seal the win.

This homestand, which continues Saturday with a visit from the Ottawa Senators and concludes Tuesday with a game against the Boston Bruins, is crucial because the Canadiens finish the month with six games on the road.

The Canadiens are currently holding the second wild-card position with 37 points, one fewer than Boston. They opened a five-point lead over Pittsburgh, but the idle Penguins hold two games in hand.

All you have to know about Thursday’s game is that Carey Price was outstanding even though he gave up four goals on 31 shots.


Kanye West is not sending Christmas cheer to Drake. West appeared to reignite a feud with the fellow rapper in a series of tweets on Thursday in which he claimed Drake had called trying to threaten him.

West wrote: “So drake if anything happens to me or anyone from my family you are the first suspect – So cut the tough talk.”

West alleged Drake was behind audience members rushing the stage and splashing fellow rapper Pusha T with liquid during a concert in Toronto in November.

Drake did not post a response. An email seeking comment was sent to a Drake representative.

The rappers have had an ongoing feud this year, but West had apologized to Drake in September.
