The Provencher Bridge (over the Red River) links Winnipeg and St. Boniface, looking from the St. Boniface side, with the Museum for Human Rights in Winnipeg off to the right. Just like our bridges linking Quebec City and Lévis over Ruby’s fleuve … only different.

It’s Sunday evening and I’m writing an article for the Quebec Chronicle-Telegraph, having of course waited until the last minute. It’s exactly like almost every Sunday since I moved to Quebec City. Only... I’m not here (or there) anymore.
