Mayor of St-Théodore-d'Acton dumps large rock on ex-wife's drive

In a bizarre situation in St-Théodore-d'Acton, Quebec, Mayor Dany Larivière dumped a 20-tonne rock on his ex-wife's driveway to 'wish' her a 'happy birthday'.
Larivière split up with Isabelle Prevost - who he was married to for ten years - last year.
As he also owns the local quarry, Larivière took full advantage of his assets and transported the large rock to Prevost's house.
Although he was stopped by confused police en route, he was allowed to continue after providing official documents.
Larivière told a local newspaper: "I brought what we call a big rock to my ex-wife."
"I took a rock from one of my quarries and I brought it to her place with a little message and a nice ribbon, just like a real gift."
The rock read: "Bonne Fête Isa xx"
He added: "I had to do something so she'd leave me alone. She never had a rock big enough for her tastes, now she has one. That's the biggest rock she'll ever get in her life.
"This is the final straw so that my ex-wife will leave me alone. She continues to harass me behind by back despite many warnings and legal appeals. This is probably the largest gift she will receive in her life."
Prevost later filed a complaint with Quebec Provincial Police, who are now investigating the incident. The mayor has since agreed to remove the rock from her driveway.
You can see a picture of the rock on the Metro's website.
