Same hospital, different treatment

A few years ago on April 14, I arrived at the Bowen's hospital in Sherbrooke for a cat-scan. When I asked the employee at the reception how to get to my destination, I was directed rather abruptly to a room on the second floor. There, a nurse, or someone dressed like a nurse, told me to change to a blue thing-a-ma-jig that ties in the back and leaves your knees showing.

The tumult and the shouting have died; Clothilde Rapaille has left for parts unknown, licking his wounds and updating his CV, our Mayor has made his peace with the members of the Press and muzzled his Councillors with respect to you-know-who.

Kebs chalk up fourth win

The Quebec City Kebs won for the fourth time this season, beating the Maryland GreenHawks 110-101 Friday night in Quebec City.

The game was close thoughout, as the Kebs led by by four at the end of the first quarter and by only 2 points at halftime.
