In the context of our communication course, we had to organize an event that would be able to stand out as there were many offered to students in the same week.

When one hears “the waterfall” in Quebec City, we often think of Montmorency Falls, near the bridge to l’île d’Orleans.

Roch Carrier’s classic The Hockey Sweater (1980), sets rich textures of childhood memory: pure love of sport, the idea of hero, and an introduction to bitter-sweet rivalry. The pride and passion for Les Canadiens feels palpable, as a young fan is forced to wear the emblem of his favourite team's enemy.
