The sun was out and so were the neighbours and tourists in Old Quebec on June 10. La Maison de la Littérature and the Morrin Centre held a street party to get to know their neighbours better.

J.P. Chartier composed, wrote, composed, directed, played and performed in What if…? The Musical, which was presented at La Maison Jaune last weekend. There are four more performances scheduled for this coming weekend so I won’t give away too much of the story.

Canada 150 is about more than celebrating this impressive milestone. It is about the people that made this country. In St. Anthony, Newfoundland, I discovered one of these people.
