Sophie Pelletier-Roy is a 40-year-old mother of four, ages 3 to 14. She looks like a runner – small, thin and muscular – but she did not even start running long-distances until she was 39. “She was on fire last year,” said her partner. Sophie discovered she felt good running for long periods and extended her 5km runs with the goal of running the half-Marathon des Deux Rives in 2011.

When one hears “the waterfall” in Quebec City, we often think of Montmorency Falls, near the bridge to l’île d’Orleans. However, there are several grand waterfalls near the city which are accessible and well worth a day trip.

In order to complete a communication course project we made an event which would somehow help our community. Soccer for cancer was held on Thursday, April 5th. It took place at the Honco Stadium in Charny at 10 pm. The outcome of the event was excellent since our main goal was to have fun and not have lots of profits.

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.

The air was frisky on our way to the Sainte-Foy arena where my wife Denyse was going to skate for her first time this season. She was radiant with the thought of having the occasion to practice her favorite sport.

Somebody has the money, don't they?

Hockey team, what hockey team?

      Looks like a new (old) hockey team in Winnipeg is almost a done deal. They followed the rules , they got a new stadium ( paid mostly for by private money) and they're certainly as enthusiastic as Quebec City fans, if not more. Hockey is a great money maker for any city that has a team and I think it would be great if we had one here.

This is what came to mind when I saw the canoe on the St. Lawrence River at the Immigration Wharf (Cap-Rouge) or, more specifically La Plage Jacques Cartier. They were practising for the Winter Carnival race to be held at the end of this month and a second race in February. They will be crossing the river and back from Quebec to Levis.
