Prince William and Kate will visit Canada and Montreal…

May 31, 2011

Kate and William’s decided to go ahead with their visit to Canada and they will come to Montreal on July 2. 2011. The exact route is yet to come.
A couple groups have promised to demonstrate against the monarchy which complicates the preparation of the organizers. For his part, Prime Minister of Canada Stephen Harper promised during the royal wedding to provide the young couple with camping equipment to help them to better appreciate Canada. A question asked by some: Will Pippa be on the trip?
Stay tuned!

Dominique Strauss-Khan and his old friends…

May 27, 2011

Dominique Strauss-Khan has friends everywhere, at least he had!
One wonders what Barack Obama said while he retains Dominique Strauss-Khan, who seems to go for Michelle Obama?
It was in the United State in September 2009 at the G-20 (Phipps Conservatory in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania).

The Old Port of Montreal, a beach in a bottle…

May 26, 2011

The team of the Old Port of Montreal is planning to build a public beach near the Quai de l’Horloge. The project is valued at $ 180 million and the Funds have yet to be obtained from various governments, particularly from Conservatives of Stephen Harper …
The facilities will offer no swimming except watering by artificial casings with jets in a drizzle. In other words, a beach in a bottle!
Mayor Gerald Tremblay is so excited about this project that he decided to celebrate the announcement with a stroll in Bixi … No representatives of Governments, however, has accepted to go with him!
Long live at the Beach! Long live to summer! Cheers water bottles!

Corey Hart is back in business…

May 25, 2011

Corey Hart is back in the music world, but not with Julie Masse.
The rock singer and father is in Montreal to present its first artist as a producer for Warner Music (Siena Records). Marie-Christine has voice and her songs are catchy and rhythmic. Sometimes we found a resemblance to Madonna and her album: “I’m Breathless – Dick Tracy” (1990).
The new album of Marie-Christine is titled: “Walk In Beauty”.
A very interesting album and an artist to watch!

The future of the news website RUE FRONTENAC…

May 24, 2011

The information website RUE FRONTENAC is threatened of final closure in less than 30 days unless a financial solution is discovered!
This site is one of the best in Quebec in terms of its quality as information website but it lacks the essential element to survive, a convergence that would allow it to be financially funded.
The situation is similar in all respects to that of We had over 60,000 subscribers by emails and a rising visibility with over 4000 daily visitors on the website. We were a small group of 5 persons but we had among us a financial patron and our goal was to “sell” our project to a large group, either French, Canadian or American, and that from its starting in 2005.
When the financial patron died in late 2008 and that we could not complete any negotiations with major private press groups, we knew the project was doomed to die and it would not continue. The group was closed in December 2009 and I kept the website as a personal blog with Miss X and the mascots …
The site RUE FRONTENAC has two major differences compared to site. It is primarily a social project, not a private business project, and secondly the team consists of a few tens of the best journalists and press photographers in Quebec.
If I have any advice to the organizers of Rue Frontenac it is to seek convergence towards electronic media rather than paper media. According to me, a group like Tele-Quebec is interesting because it could enjoy the contents of RUE FRONTENAC and the work of its journalists. This television network is currently disabled because it does not have a newsroom (even the Weather Network presents news bulletins).
RUE FRONTENAC is the best in town but with no money, it’s the end of the trip. Good luck!
