A time for change

 

Spring is a time for renewal, a time to blossom and grow; a time for change.

After much thought and a few tears, I have decided to "retire" from the QCT to take on a new adventure.

Volunteers are green power

This is one powerful week – as we celebrate volunteers and the planet.

It’s National Volunteer Week and Earth Day whirred by on Tuesday.

Volunteering keeps us physically and mentally motivated. It keeps us active.

CBC Radio's Go! a hit at Morrin Centre

Brent Bonhomme Banbury and his motley crew touched down in Quebec City in mid snowstorm for a week's worth of adventures leading up to their live show at Morrin Centre on Saturday, March 15.

Let’s not bury our heads and our heritage in the sand

Our Mayor seems to be more worried about what other people might think about the ruins of the former St-Vincent-de-Paul church, perched precariously at the top of Côte d’Abraham, than saving a part of our city’s heritage.

Fingers crossed for action plan

Our fingers are crossed that the federal government’s cross-country minority-language tour will bear fruit in time for the action plan being prepared by former New Brunswick premier Bernard Lord.

Groups from across the country met with Lord to pitch their ideas and voice their concerns over, among other issues, the current funding formulas.

Seniors on the Road

There's plenty in the news these days about seniors on the road -- driving and walking!

When it comes to seniors driving, it can be a very touchy subject. Giving up a privilege that one has had for decades is a tough decision, especially when it lands in the hands of the family, a physician or the police to be the bearer of bad news.  

Kudos for Rosina

Congratulations to the students and teachers involved in the recent production of Rosina, the operetta that was recently performed at Morrin Centre's College Hall. Kudos to Morrin Centre's team -- and to France Cliche -- for maing it happen after the idea was suggested by one Edwina Carson.

Make your own history in 2008

Well, 2008 is finally here! As we recover from relaxing and feasting over the holidays, it is time to get into the rhythm of Quebec City’s 400th anniversary celebrations, if we have not already.

This city was founded through the courage and determination of those who first landed here and believed in a new world, a land of opportunity.

Shalom from Quebec, shall we continue to welcome?

On December 10, 1948, the United Nations adopted the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. The same date also marks Canada’s ratification of the UN Convention on Discrimination Against Women.

Dignity, equality, freedom and social justice are among the rights protected under these conventions.

But what have these steps meant? Have we progressed?
