Here’s what happened during the calm before the storm

Alexandre Bissonnette’s parents criticized his sentence for the Quebec City mosque shooting as “very harsh.”  Bissonnette received an automatic life sentence when he pleaded guilty to six counts of first-degree murder last year. On Friday, Quebec Superior Court Justice François Huot determined that Bissonnette will have to serve 40 years of that life sentence before he becomes eligible for full parole. On Monday, Bissonnette’s parents, Manon Marchand and Raymond Bissonnette, sent a letter to media outlets stating: “Before allowing consecutive sentences, those condemned of serious crimes could keep some hope in the possibility of applying for parole after 25 years and being placed under the supervision of the Parole Board of Canada for the rest of their lives.”

Quebec introduced new guidelines for parents of minor hockey players. The Education Department in conjunction with Quebec’s minor hockey federation has put together a behaviour protocol governing how hockey associations should handle aggressive and unacceptable events involving parents of minor hockey players. “Excessive bad language and disgraceful conduct cannot be tolerated in hockey,” Junior Education Minister Isabelle Charest said Monday at a news conference presenting the 43-page booklet. “And unfortunately today, we continue to see this type of behaviour too often in Quebec’s arenas.” Paul Menard, head of Hockey Quebec, said the guide will be sent immediately to all minor hockey associations across the province. He said parent behaviour won’t change overnight, but he expects people to fall in line soon.

Houston police say some people who went into an abandoned home to smoke marijuana found a caged tiger. They called police on Monday and the major offender animal cruelty unit and animal shelter volunteers arrived on the scene. Authorities nicknamed the tiger “Tyson” after the movie “The Hangover.” Officials tell KHOU-TV the tiger was well fed, but the cage was secured by a nylon strap and screwdriver. Officials say it could easily open and the tiger could have gone on a “rampage.” The tiger was taken to an animal shelter and will be transferred to an undisclosed animal sanctuary in Texas. It’s legal to own a tiger in Texas if the owner has a wild game permit. But it is illegal to have a tiger in Houston.
