Changes in the French CBC Montreal; Louis Lalande force the departure of Alain Saulnier and replaces him by Michel CormierFebruary 24, 2012
There is a death spirit at Radio-Canada (Montreal) as the news director Alain Saulnier said that he had been forced to resign on 16 March. It seems he did not get along with the big boss Louis Lalande …
This is the Acadian journalist Michel Cormier who will replace Saulnier. Cormier had wreaked havoc on his recent arrival in the general direction of the CBC Moncton moving star host Abbé Lanteigne from the regional newscast.
Now some Acadians are suggesting that the new director of Radio-Canada Moncton should be Abbé Lanteigne!
Many observers also said that the departure of the host star Christiane Charette one year ago was also motivated by the arrival of Lalande at the top radio job.
One could say that a storm is blowing through the CBC … Stay tuned!

With the approach of the March Break 2012, many parents will find themselves on vacation at the cottage or elsewhere in the country.
An excellent book to pack is the latest thriller by Louise Penny: DÉFENSE DE TUER (translation of the original – The Murder Stone). The action of the book takes place in the Eastern Townships at the Manoir Bellechasse (fictitious name inspired by the Manoir Hovey in North Hartley).
The author Penny has been very successful in describing the atmosphere of a country house hotel and we appreciate her descriptive narrative as much as the murder mystery discovered by the detective Armand Gamache …
An excellent book to accompany the March break.
The problem of homelessness looks like a zombie horror film genre.
The police say to the homeless out of the subway and once in the street to move! But to where? Back on the subway?
In the horror film, the zombies end up being more numerous than the people around them and they invade the city! What will happen when the homeless (already more than 30.000 in Montreal) will outnumber the police? Will they call the army?
What will be the reaction by the Quebec Minister Raymond Bachand regarding the revelation by Jean Barbe about the “Party in Paris”?
Finally, the minister said that he do not consider the comment as serious…
