Happy Birthday QCT

Happy 245th birthday to the Quebec Chronicle Telegraph and congratulations for this outstanding achievement!
QCT is part of our common heritage and we are proud that the oldest newspaper in North America is still published in our city.
"Longue vie" au QCT!

Shopping bag distribution decreases

Four weeks after introducing a five cent charge for single-use grocery bags, Metro grocery stores across Quebec and Ontario (Metro, Metro Plus, Super C and Marché Richelieu) are reporting that 70 per cent fewer bags have been distributed in store, compared against the monthly average. Demand for reusable bags has increased fivefold since June 1, when the fee was implemented.
