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.

Anglo Issues Downplayed in Quebec Election Campaign

Of all of Quebec's political parties, only the ultra-nationalist Parti Indépendentiste has drawn reference to specifically anglophone issues this provincial election campaign. In particular, the party has proposed the closing of English hospitals and schools.
