Great Article Mr. French

Mr. French, your article on Vincent Larochelle was excellent. In our class, reading and math were daily treats to be enjoyed. He and three others were captivated by The Hobbit. I'd like to use this occasion to encourage all parents to read to their infants as soon as possible. No other action will have as much of an impact on your child's future success in school.

We hosted over 120 people at the Les Voûtes du Cavour, Thursday, December 4. Of those who attended over 40 were newcomers to the Quebec City area. We were very pleased to see such a great community turn out. Congratulations to those who won the door prizes and we hope to see everyone at the next VEQ happy hour in February 2009.' - Jean-Sébastien Gignac, Executive Director, VEQ.

 

No talent to waste: literacy an economic priority

To the Leaders of Quebec’s Political Parties,

We heard proposals during this past electoral campaign on how to deal with the economic crisis at our door. The situation is, in fact, worrisome, and the economy is the focal point of each party's position.
