Missing Saint Patrick’s Day and Quebec City and Times Gone By

When I was growing up in Quebec City, it was very important to demonstrate on St. Patrick's Day.

FORT Program important for networking and re-entering the job market

How would anyone like to have salt rubbed into an old would over and over again? I'm not suggesting that the reality of history be totally buried because of negative feeling the conflict stirs in some.
