  1. Montreal Croupiers Take Electronic Poker Table Battle to Court by PokerPages.com Mon, Jan 28th, 2008 @ 12:00am Three unions representing 1,450 croupiers at Quebec area casinos lodged a request with Quebec Superior Court to force the board that regulates gambling in the province, the Regie des alcools des courses et des jeux, to address complaints that the 25 automated electronic Texas Hold'em poker tables installed Jan. 18 at the Montreal Casino are illegal. The croupiers, who have been without a contract since Dec. 21, 2006, are in ongoing discussions with the Societe des casinos du Quebec. The croupiers say the tables are illegal and charmless. The PokerPro tables, made by PokerTek, a North Carolina USA-based company, do not meet Quebec's legal requirement that slot machines be pure games of chance, said Jean-Pierre Proulx, a spokesperson for the croupiers union, affiliated with the Quebec Federation of Labour. Proulx maintains that poker has a large element of strategy as well as chance, so should not be treated the same as a slot machine. The union has been waiting for a ruling from the Regie on the legality of the machines. 43 Electronic Tables Already Installed Besides the 25 automated poker tables installed at the Montreal, 13 have been installed at Lac Leamy in Gatineau and 5 in Charlevoix. According to Vito Casucci, a spokesman for Pokertek, the machines can deal 50 per cent faster than human dealers, allowing customers to spend their money faster. The union is concerned that casino staff may consequently lose their jobs and that the new poker rooms represent a trend toward more electronic games. According to a union spokesperson, the Regie has steadfastly refused to meet with them or confirm that a complaint against the introduction of the dealer-free machines has been lodged. The union filed a complaint with Quebec's alcohol and gaming regulator Dec. 7, arguing that the absence of a human dealer makes the tables illegal under Quebec law. "We are asking the court to make a ruling that the Regie has to meet with us," union spokesperson Jean-Pierre Proulx said. "They have not responded to our demands, they put our lawyer on hold and said they have no file of our complaint. Technically, the Regie is not doing their job." He said the croupiers' unions, affiliated with the Quebec Federation of Labour and representing workers from Montreal, Gatineau and Charlevoix, complained to the Regie twice in December and twice this month. Regie spokesperson Rejean Theriault said receipt of the complaints was acknowledged but the situation could not be analyzed until the machines were opened Jan. 18. "It's like investigating a murder when there's no body," Theriault said. http://www.pokerpages.com/poker-news/news/montreal-croupiers-take-electronic-poker-table-battle-to-court--30339.htm
  2. Did you guys see this? It's a new illuminated electronic superboard (14' * 48') on the east bound 40 near Viau. It doesn't display video (yet) just a series of advertisments. Very bright and the resolution is impressive! I wonder if they will install others.
  3. Champlain College to open Montréal campus BURLINGTON — Champlain College announced that it is leasing property in Montréal to operate a study-abroad campus starting this fall. Students will be able to choose to spend a full academic semester in Montréal taking Champlain College courses. Champlain’s campus is believed to be the first U.S. campus in Montréal. Ten Champlain College courses will be offered there this fall — the same courses that are offered at its Burlington campus. Students will pay the same tuition and residence hall rates as they would in Vermont. Study-abroad applications for fall have been coming in and the college is now working with an architect to renovate the brownstone building on Rue Sherbrooke that will house Champlain’s academic center. The college has also contracted with L'Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM) to offer student housing in a UQAM residence hall on Rue St. Urbain. This is a francophone university that offers Champlain students the opportunity to live with students from Québec and Canada, as well as a variety of other countries. “With our new campus in Montreal, Champlain students can make the most of the many international business, multicultural and learning opportunities that are available in that major metropolitan center,” said David F. Finney, college president. “The Montreal campus is another way for our students to internationalize their educational experience.” In addition to study-abroad programs at partner colleges in Europe and a host of international internship offerings, Champlain also operates a satellite campus in Mumbai, India. Courses offered in Montréal will include: Modern Canadian Social History, Creativity and Conceptual Development, Critical Thinking, Practical Game Design, Animating Characters in 3-D, Game Development Senior Team Project, Social Responsibility in Media, Conversational French, and a required Québec cultural immersion course. Nearly 30 students are expected to spend the fall 2007 semester in Montréal. In the future, students from other colleges will be able to apply to study at the Quebec campus. The Montréal campus is open to students in all academic programs. Students in Champlain’s electronic and multimedia and graphic design programs may be particularly attracted to the experience since Montréal is one of “gaming’s global hot spots,” according to WIRED Magazine. Québec is home to more than 50 electronic game-related companies and development studios, including Ubisoft, A2M and Electronic Arts. Students in Champlain’s business programs can study in a province that is among Vermont’s most important trading partners.
