Wondering WTF happened this week in Montreal? Us too. We’ve got the unfolding UPAC soap opera, a former spy/doctor with stage-four cancer and the death of a legendary sandwich. Plus: the pope’s pajamas!
Quebecers are feeling more religious, anglos are feeling marginalized and the guy we sent into space is doing his job by reading Reddit. It’s the Monday news round-up.
The Pope blows this popsicle stand, tanning salons start carding, education summit a lesson in being weirdly evasive and more, in this week’s Monday news round-up.
Quebec anglophones are not a community — we are part of many communities. They include our francophone spouses, colleagues and neighbours, just as they do our Arab friends, Hellenic bosses and Hispanic teammates. The same is true of most urban Quebec francophones.
For anglos like me, speaking French has become just as difficult as writing it, because now I have to think carefully before talking, lest I give away my mother tongue by using the wrong gender for a fucking pamplemousse.
