  3. Jack & Jones et Vero Moda entrent au Québec Mise en ligne 31/07/2008 04h00 © Argent Marie-Eve Fournier Le Journal de Montréal Deux autres détaillants étrangers s’apprêtent à faire leur entrée au Québec. Les chaînes danoises Jack & Jones et Vero Moda ouvriront des succursales au Carrefour Laval, a appris le Journal. Les deux boutiques de vêtements, qui appartiennent à l’entreprise Bestseller, accueilleront leurs premiers clients en octobre. Elles partageront le même local mais auront chacune leur entrée. Jack & Jones offre des collections pour hommes, surtout des jeans et des t-shirts, tandis que Vero Moda se spécialise dans la mode féminine très tendance, à bas prix. En arrivant à Laval, les deux enseignes feront aussi leurs premiers pas en sol canadien, un vaste marché que Bestseller veut développer. D’ailleurs d’autres locaux dans toutes les grandes villes du pays sont actuellement recherchés. «Des négociations sont en cours avec plusieurs centres commerciaux», a confirmé au Journal Eileen Halpin, du bureau d’Oberfeld Snowcap, à Toronto. En outre, Bestseller a ouvert un bureau régional à Montréal, ce qui explique pourquoi les premières boutiques du groupe verront le jour au Québec, dit Mme Halpin. 4 100 magasins dans 41 pays Bestseller est une entreprise familiale qui a été fondée en 1975 à Ringkøbing, au Danemark, par Troels Holch Povlsen. Aujourd’hui, les 11 enseignes du groupe, toutes spécialisées dans la vente de vêtements, sont présentes à travers le monde. Au total, l’entreprise possède 4 100 magasins dans 41 pays, et emploie 39 000 personnes. Ses collections sont également vendues dans plus de 12 000 autres points de vente, dont La Baie et Simons au Québec. En 2006-2007, les ventes de Bestseller ont atteint 1, 97 milliard d’euros (2,21 G$ CAN), en hausse de 17 % par rapport à l’année précédente. L’été dernier, Vero Moda a fait parler d’elle en embauchant comme tête d’affiche le mannequin le mieux payé au monde, Gisele Bündchen. La Brésilienne, qui a déjà été la petite amie de Leonardo DiCaprio, a gagné 35 M$ US, l’an dernier, selon le magazine Forbes.

    Montreal Haunts

    Montreal Haunts Kathleen Murphy Issue date: 10/30/07 Section: halloween edition Behind every great city there lies at least one chilling ghost story and Montreal is no exception. The Old Port is believed to be the most haunted part of the city. Before it was converted to a restaurant, Le Saint Gabriel was the oldest inn in Montreal and was said to be haunted by the ghost of a young girl who died there in a fire during the 19th century. The Old Port is also the home of Marie-Reine Besnard, the witch of Hotel Dieu, and the infamous lovers Claude Thibault and Marie-Josèphe Angélique, who were allegedly responsible for the fire that destroyed most of the Old Port in 1734. Marie-Josèphe-Angélique was found guilty and gruesomely executed, but Claude Thibault disappeared and was never seen again. London may be famous for Jack the Ripper, but at least all of Jack the Ripper's victims remained dead. This was not the case for victim and prostitute Mary Gallagher. In 1879 she was beheaded by her best friend and fellow prostitute Susan Kennedy. Rumour has it that a downstairs neighbour heard Gallagher's body fall, followed by the sound of an axe chopping for ten whole minutes. Every seven years, Gallagher returns to haunt the streets of Griffintown where she died. Ghosts are still being sighted in Montreal to this day. Le Spectre Montreal is a team of ghost hunters who will help anyone "troubled by paranormal phenomenon" free of charge. If they can't resolve the problem, they recommend people, such as mediums, who can. In November 2001, Le Spectre investigated an old Bed and Breakfast that was haunted by the spirits of previous owners who committed suicide in the building. Images of these spirits can be seen in pictures taken inside the house. Another Le Spectre project took place in June 2002, when a family with two young children moved into a house in the south shore. While playing in the ruins of an old house, the children came across the battered corpse of an old man. The victim had lost a lot of blood and one of his legs had been pulled from his body. The children ran screaming to their parents but when they returned to the house, the body was gone. In June 2001, in St. Joseph (on the north shore), a man took a wedding picture in a gazebo outside the house where he was having his reception. Behind his head in the picture is the image of a small baby's face. Upon asking the owners, the man discovered that 25 years ago a baby girl named Alison Campbell died by drowning in a pond that used to lie under the gazebo. If you are interested in learning more about the ghosts that lurk in Montreal there is a ghost tour that takes place in Old Port. Tours end in September but they have special tours over Halloween
  5. Voici un extrait de l'article. I have to admit that this stuff pisses me off. We are Canada's #2 economy, but its as if we've become irrelevant. Instead of focusing on building a competitive global area, we've been focused on renaming metro stations instead. This is a wake up call to all Montrealers, we're watching the parade pass us right by. Ontario has been hurt by cutbacks at automakers such General Motors Co. and weakness at smartphone maker BlackBerry Ltd. Quebec has struggled with with Montreal-based Bombardier Inc. seeing delays with its new CSeries jet and lumber and paper mills closing. To be sure, Canada’s economy still benefits from a broad array of commodity exports and is underpinned by the world’s safest banks headquartered in Toronto. “Canada is becoming a tale of two cities, Toronto and Calgary,” said Jack Mintz of the University of Calgary’s School of Public Policy, who used to teach at University of Toronto. “I don’t think growth in Alberta means other places are worse off,” he said. Ontario has lost manufacturing competitiveness to China, the U.S. and Mexico, he said. Calgary rated higher than Toronto in a review of prosperity across 24 global cities conducted by the Toronto Region Board of Trade. Calgary was second on superior growth for income and jobs, along with lower taxes, and Toronto was in third place. Paris topped the list.
