On the way back to Quebec City from North Hatley, we took a detour to visit the town of Lac-Mégantic. Four months after the terrible train crash of July 6, the town is slowly recovering. Life goes on. Damage is visible on homes that were relatively near the fire, especially on houses with vinyl siding.


Edward "Ted" Patrick Walsh, 89, passed away in hospital on November 3, 2013, in Ottawa.

The Rouge et Or won the Dunsmore Cup for the eleventh time in a row and the twelfth in their history by defeating the Montreal Carabins 14-11 in a nail-biting game on Saturday, November 9, at the Telus stadium. By doing so, the Rouge et Or also extended their awesome record of 64 consecutive home victories.

Haiti, in extremis, the new exhibit at the Musée de la civilisation, is a stunning artistic voyage into the vibrant contemporary life of a country that Canadians usually hear about for all the wrong reasons.

Remembering all the way

Chalmers-Wesley United Church in Quebec City, like most churches in Canada, held a special worship service last Sunday which included an Act of Remembrance to honour the members of their congregation who died during the First and Second World Wars.
