National Library of Quebec – 5 years!

April 30, 2010

Bernard Bujold took opportunity of the 5th anniversary of the National Library of Quebec in Montreal to revisit the place. “At first I went there every week because of my friendship with Lise Bissonnette then I stopped due to lack of time. I prefer Indigo which is a library in itself and that is especially two streets from my home … But the public library is still very interesting and I was very happy to go back. I will try to go there more often again! “

Happy Birthday Stephen Harper!

April 30, 2010

The Prime Minister of Canada celebrates today 51 years (April 30, 2010). Stephen Harper is Prime Minister since January 23, 2006 and Conservative leader since March 2004. Harper is married to Laureen Teskey and father of two children: Benjamin (1996) and Rachel (1999). Harper is of humble origins and for several years it is his wife Laureen (a designer of websites) which supported the couple financially. Despite a lack of charisma, Stephen Harper is a formidable politician and he managed to win the Conservative leadership to Belinda Stronach, who was supported by her father Frank, the rich businessman (Magna). Moreover, none of the other Canadian political parties can dislodge him ¸neither in popular polls, or in the electoral vote and Michael Ignatieff cannot surpass the efforts of Stephane Dion before him. An excellent biography of Harper was written by William Johnson:
