Shannon Author Captures Irish-Canadian Experience

My dad was Irish and my mom was French -- another one of those mixed marriages. But they appreciated the same things. Of course, my dad said, "It took me twenty years to learn."

Playing the Player Piano

Somepianos today play automatically. It really gives you a shock to hearthem tinkering along without someone sitting on the bench. Iguess it's really great, but not too much different from aradio without advertisements or a CD -- and it takes up more room.

Timeless Tall Tales

The other day while passing by Chalmers Wesley Church I saw two cranes, one of which appeared to reach to the clouds. The workmen were replacing the shutters in the steeple with wooden panels in order to prevent rain and snow from penetrating and causing more damage. This could not wait until next summer when the steeple will be rebuilt. It reminded me of Baron Munchausen.

QC parents create child care oasis

Finding an open place for a child in a Quebec City day care can be like trying to find a drink of water in the desert. With few places and even fewer bilingual day cares, a group of parents in the English-speaking community have created Halte Garderie Oasis Daycare, a bilingual cooperative drop-off day care with registration beginning this week at the Eastern Quebec Learning Center.

Study seeks source of unemployment amongst Anglophones, Allophones

Why aren't bilingual anglophones and allophones being employed in Quebec City? The launch of a new study by the Quebec Multilingual Committee and Emploi-Québec promises to find out this winter.

CQSB bemoaning lack of volunteers, recognize their efforts

While volunteers in our schools are not an extinct species, they certainly are an endangered one, according to several members of the Central Quebec School Board's Parents' Committee. Members of that committee are trying to counter the decline in the number of parent volunteers with the launch of a Parent-Volunteer of the Month section on the CQSB website in the coming year.

Wendake Chief Sworn In

Days after the elections in Wendake, former Grand Chief Max Gros-Louis, 77, gallantly spoke with the QCT in his home in the village. Rummaging through letters and articles written to or about him, Gros-Louis, having announced his retirement, sat calmly at his dining room table and reminisced.

Kudos to the QCT

I'm sure that I'm only one of the many subscribers to the QCT that wants to underline the fact that we appreciate the local and world news that is provided by the newspaper (my parents and then myself have received it for some 60 yrs). Also great now that I read the digital version when in front of my PC.

Thanks again for your great work at keeping it alive.

Battle for the Leaves

As I gaze out my window my eyes are drawn by the sight of something the size of a Patton tank making its way up my street. The city uses these things round this time of year, for collecting leaves that accumulate alongside curbstones.

Lost in Translation

I am deeply concerned by the shoddy translation that is on the new monument unveiled for Remembrance Day at Valcartier.

Perhaps it is a small error and I should be more forgiving, but to me it shows the second-class position given to English.
