QESBA to meet at Concorde next weekend; Bill 88 on agenda?

The Quebec English School Board's Association will meet next weekend at the Loew's Concorde Hotel for what is being billed as a professional development conference.

"We're going from a leisure schedule to a schedule that's more business oriented," said Porter Airlines spokesman Brad Cicero.

No room for spiritual or thought provoking commentaries in the QCT

I have been a subscriber to the QCT for the last six years. Even though I no longer live in Quebec City, I have continued to support it as an important vehicle for the Anglophone community.
