When the Google-Chronicle Telegraph project first appeared on my screen last autumn, soon to bring online early Quebec Gazette newspapers, the idea seemed novel, perhaps even a bit far-fetched. Having read through most of the Quebec Gazette from 1800 to 1873 on hard-copy and microfilm, I knew how the Gazette had brought news from the Lower St.

On the front page of last week's edition of the QCT, in a piece entitled "CQSB to change catchment area for Saint-Augustin, Cap Rouge," we mistakenly reported that changes would be made to several CQSB catchment areas. In fact, no such changes have been made, nor are there plans to do so. Catchment areas for the coming year will remain identical to those in effect this past year.
