Climate change to blame for miserable weather?

Usually when people talk about the weather it’s because they’ve got nothing better to say. This so-called spring it’s different. These days whenever you meet someone, before you can even say, “How’s it going, eh?” there’s a dark oath uttered about – how do we put it? – this incredibly excremental weather, followed by, “What have we done to deserve this?”

It’s important to stop and think about the wonderful things Quebec City offers. As residents of this beautiful city, it’s easy to imagine most cities providing similar activities.

Allez-oop! A crane operator gingerly assembled a humongous brass elephant on spindly, bone-like legs in front of the Château Frontenac on May 29, part of the Galerie d’Art du Château Frontenac’s summer exhibit. Known as the Space Elephant, the work also has an elongated pyramid sitting on its back.
