Letter to the Editor

A tribute to the Quebec Chronicle-Telegraph


As a student of the English learning centre Ateliers de Conversation Anglaise (ACA), every week our teacher, Mister Ron, used to give us a copy of the Quebec Chronicle-Telegraph newspaper during our class so that we could choose an article of our choice in order to comment on it and give a presentation on it during the next class.

Louis Riel – What of the music, what of the history?

Letter to the Editor

The pages of the Chronicle-Telegraph have often glistened this summer with the exploits of well-known yet foreign popular musicians and cultures whose great walls of sound have captivated the residents of the city, although primarily it seems for the mainly under-30 population (while the grey hairs often concentrate before the stage of the OSQ) and those amorous of métal lourd.

Dear Readers

This time last year, if you recall, the future of North America’s oldest newspaper was in peril. The Quebec Chronicle–Telegraph presses had all but stopped. Our traditional means of communication was on the brink of extinction. Thankfully the Stantons stepped in, purchased the paper and breathed new life into her pages.

Dear Mrs. Dompierre,

Remembering Jack

Letter to the Editor

I met Jack Layton in 1984 when I became the Executive Director of STOP 103, a multi-service agency supporting poor and marginal people in the urban core of Toronto. Jack was the fairly new but outspoken alderman for the area that included STOP 103. In a very short period of time, I found that his concerns were my concerns: homelessness, hunger, poverty and the environment.

Thanks to the troops

As the combat mission in Afghanistan transitions into other military activities, The Royal Canadian Legion would like to extend a heartfelt thanks to those service men and women, and their families, who have served with distinction and sacrificed on behalf of Canadians during these past several years.

The loss of Jack Odgers and Russell Walker

Letter to the Editor

It was with great sadness that I noted in last week’s edition the loss to the anglophone community of two wonderful people - Jack Odgers and Russell Walker. I knew both of them and they were true gentlemen and a delight to spend time with.

Spendthrifts with taxpayer’s money

The Association of Administrators of English Schools of Quebec (AAESQ) and the Quebec English School Boards Association (QESBA) held their annual Spring Conference, on May 26-28, 2011, in Gatineau, Quebec.

Thank you

I would like to express my gratitude to the cycling community and other residents of Quebec City for their warm welcome to me and my children last week. We returned to Quebec to participate in the Tour du silence and the Bruce S.
