Anniversary Letters to the Editor

The U.S. Consulate General in Quebec City celebrates the QCT

250 years in print and still standing tall in the present

Paving the road of local history

With words and stories

Of the people



Hi Shirley,  Just a quick word to say congratulations for your outstanding achievements at the Quebec Chronicle-Telegraph!  We are lucky to have you!

- Best wishes, Sandra Holman 

I feel privileged that, just by doing something I love, I can be part of the rebirth of “the little paper that could.” It's a great way for me to keep up with what's happening in our community, and I always learn something in the process.

- Mary Hilton, 

consultant to the copy editor 


Congratulations for the Certificates of Excellence that you have won. You deserve it because you do a great job. Recent articles on the occasion of the QCT's 250th anniversary are very interesting. I am very proud of the publication of this English newspaper and I never miss an opportunity to promote it. We know more about English community and it is helping to a better communication between two cultures.

- Denise Duchesne


I spent approximately 38 years in Quebec and now that I've retired to Australia, I’m so glad to see your digital copy. CONGRATULATIONS ON CELEBRATING 250 YEARS. Well done to you all.

- William (Bill) Thomas Whitehead*


*Mr. Whitehead tells us he subscribed in the earlier years when the Quebec Chronicle-Telegraph was delivered, and later normally picked it up at what was then Demers’ diner at the corner of Belvédère and Saint-Cyrille (now René-Lévesque). He retired to Australia in September 2002 and lives in Seymour, Victoria, about an hour and a half north of Melbourne. He now subscribes to the online version of the QCT.
