Update from the Publisher First-year round-up

Amazingly, it has been a year since I took the helm of North America's oldest newspaper. Over this year, I have learned a great deal about and have become integrated into this city; it has been a profound learning experience for me.

My French is certainly better, and I feel, now more than ever, a part of Quebec City's close-knit anglophone community.

Reminder

Hello to the wonderful Quebec City readers of the Chronicle Telegraph, Job Patstone here.

Society’s silent auction provokes outrage

Thomas A. Reisner, Professor of English Literature (retired) Université Laval

I am sure I speak for many readers of the Chronicle when I express outrage and revulsion at what can only be characterized as the rank hypocrisy of David F. Blair’s apologia for the silent auction currently under way at the Literary and Historical Society of Quebec.

Tour guide deplores book purge

As a Québec City tour guide, I make a point of taking visitors to the chaussée des Écossais and talking about the contribution of the anglophone community to the history of our city.

I tell them about the City Gaol, Morrin College and the Literary and Historical Society of Quebec, insisting proudly on the fact that the latter was the first learned society in Canada.
