June was a month of celebration for 16 young hockey players; they won gold at the 25th annual Ottawa 67’s Minor Hockey Tournament. These eight- and nine-year-olds (all born in 1999) play AAA hockey for the Bulldog Association of Quebec. Jacob Simard of Everest Elementary and Ryan Massicotte of Holland Elementary are part of this team.

A view from Lévis of the skies above Quebec City during the Canada Day fireworks celebrations on July 1. The display represents the second in a series of three fireworks shows put on in 11 days in the city, sandwiched between the St. Jean Baptiste fireworks show and the upcoming Plein la Rue show for Quebec City’s 400th anniversary on July 3.

Quebec City finally turns 400 this week

From lower to upper town, downtown on Grande Allée and out toward the Plains of Abraham, Quebec City’s 400th anniversary party promises an epic eighteen-and-a-half-hour celebration on Thursday, July 3. With proper planning, the adventurous birthday party reveller can attend almost every event from 5:30 a.m. to midnight.

Driving my companion to Sherbrooke I decided to take AutoRoute 40 on the way there, then AutoRoute 20 to return in the afternoon.

On route 55 from Sherbrooke to Drummondville we saw those white plastic poles with the red tops being installed.

These are used to indicate the guardrails to the operators of snow removal equipment.
