  1. Importante rénovation de l'Église St. James jeudi 3 février 2011 L'église unie St. James, sur la rue Sainte-Catherine, annonce d'importantes rénovations qui coûteront jusqu'à 7 millions de dollars sur trois ans. L'église a reçu une subvention de 850 000 $ du Conseil du patrimoine religieux du Québec. La communauté religieuse espère obtenir du financement des gouvernements fédéral et municipal, et mettra sur pied une collecte de fonds. L'église doit procéder à la réfection du toit qui coule et menace notamment l'orgue plus que centenaire. Le début des travaux est prévu pour le mois d'avril. http://www.radio-canada.ca/regions/Montreal/2011/02/03/003-renovation-eglise-st-james.shtml
  2. Historic Ogilvy's building could fetch $100M Groupe Devimco in negotiations to purchase Montreal landmark By Robert Gibbens, The GazetteJanuary 26, 2010 7:29 "Spoonman" Cyrille Esteve performs outside the landmark Ogilvy's building in Montreal. Le Groupe Devimco is reportedly in talks to buy the building for about $100 million.Photograph by: Phil Carpenter, The GazetteMONTREAL – The landmark Ogilvy's building on Ste. Catherine St. will probably be sold for about $100 million to Le Groupe Devimco, one of the backers of the big Quartier Dix30 lifestyle centre in Brossard, and partners. Toronto property developer David Jubb, owner of Pyxis Real Estate Equities, bought the Ogilvy's building from the Standard Life Assurance Co. of Canada in May 2000 for $50 million. His office said he was "out of the country" and unavailable for comment. Devimco president Jean-Francoisn Breton also was not available for comment. But Ogilvy's president Bernard Pare confirmed that sale negotiations are well advanced and in the due diligence stage, though "it's not yet a done deal." Some reports said a trust controlled by the Beaudoin and Bombardier families may be a partner in the Ogilvy's deal. It was one of the original investors in Quartier Dix30 along with a large Toronto-based property trust and two pension funds. Founded in 1866 by James A. Ogilvy at the northwest corner of St. Catherine and de la Montagne, the store was acquired in 1927 for the "modest sum" of $38,500 by James Aird Nesbitt, whose father had founded the brokerage firm of Nesbitt Thompson in Montreal, and was expanded into a full-size department store. A major overhaul in 1986 moved it upscale with 60 individual boutiques, including several leading luxury brands. It kept the famed bohemian crystal chandelier on the ground floor and the bagpiper. Jubb, who owns other commercial properties in Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver, made further improvements, including a new air-conditioning system.
  3. Mise à jour le lundi 20 avril 2009 à 12 h 22 RadioCanada.ca La ministre Yolande James (archives) Radio-Canada a appris que le gouvernement de Jean Charest n'a pas atteint son objectif en matière d'immigration. Le Québec a accueilli 4000 immigrants de moins que la cible maximale fixée par la ministre Yolande James. En 2007, la ministre de l'Immigration annonçait que la province accueillerait 10 000 immigrants de plus par année d'ici 2010 et pour la seule année 2008, Yolande James parlait d'une croissance de 8 %. Mme James déclarait à l'époque: « Pour une première année, notre objectif est de 49 000 et on s'assure d'avoir les mesures nécessaires pour ce faire ». Au ministère, on cherche à minimiser, en expliquant que la ministre parlait d'une cible maximale. Selon Claude Fradet, il faut se référer à la cible inférieure fixée cette année-là à 46 700. Selon lui, les chiffres planifiés sont une fourchette. Selon le ministère, des impondérables peuvent expliquer les résultats de l'an dernier. Mais l'opposition croit qu'Immigration Québec n'a pas les moyens de ses ambitions. « On a beau se fixer des objectifs qui paraissent très importants, si le budget du ministère n'est pas à la hauteur, on n'arrivera pas à atteindre ces résultats que l'on annonce », a estimé le porte-parole de l'opposition officielle en matière d'immigration, Camil Bouchard. Par ailleurs, les cas référés par le fédéral ont baissé de plus de 50 % en cinq ans, ce qui fait dire au Parti québécois qu'Ottawa nuit à l'immigration québécoise.

  5. Après plus de 15 ans à la barre d'Aéroports de Montréal (ADM), James Cherry prendra sa retraite en décembre. L'organisme retiendra les services d'une firme de recherche de cadres pour trouver son successeur. « Grâce à sa vision et à une saine gestion, ADM a connu une croissance continue : son trafic de passagers a doublé, sa desserte aérienne, notamment à l'international, s'est grandement enrichie, et ses infrastructures ont été agrandies et modernisées. Le tout accompagné de résultats financiers solides », a déclaré hier le président du conseil, Normand Legault.
  6. How Quebec Cree avoided the fate of Attawapiskat On the eastern shore of James Bay, a very different story. By Terry Milewski, CBC News Posted: May 14, 2013 9:33 PM ET Last Updated: May 14, 2013 11:07 PM ET Read 119 comments119 Freezing, mouldy homes. Sewage contamination. Sick kids. Unemployment. A blockade on the road to the mine. A hunger strike by the chief. That, it seems, is the news from the Cree of James Bay — at least, as it's defined by the desperate community of Attawapiskat, in northern Ontario. Before that, there was the news from nearby Kashechewan. Flooding. Despair. Suicide. And both James Bay towns endured fresh emergencies this spring as the annual meltwaters exposed, again, their rickety infrastructure. But bad news makes headlines and good news usually does not. So we've heard all about the mess on the Ontario shore of James Bay — and next to nothing about the success on the eastern shore, in Quebec. Little noticed by the world outside, the Cree of northern Quebec are writing a startlingly different story than their cousins on the western shore of James Bay. Self-government. Revenue-sharing. Decent schools and new development. Mining companies being welcomed instead of blockaded. And no hunger strikes. Schoolchildren in the northern Cree community of Wemindji, Que., enjoy decent schools, in contrast to their Ontario cousins in Attawapiskat, who have been in portables since their school closed more than a decade ago. It's taken 40 years, but a long struggle is paying off. The neat streets of Wemindji or Oujé-Bougoumou feel like they're on a different planet than Attawapiskat. If the stop signs weren't in Cree, you'd think the rows of warm, solid homes were in a suburb down south. Shiny new courthouses, band offices, recreation centres and police stations are being completed. There's no crisis to summon reporters from Toronto or Montreal. So why is it so different on the Quebec side of James Bay? [...] http://www.cbc.ca/news/politics/story/2013/05/14/pol-james-bay-cree-northern-quebec-attawapiskat.html
  7. 700 000 emplois disponibles d’ici 3 ans Agence QMI Julie Charette 08/06/2009 12h08 En vue de combler les 700 000 emplois qui seront disponibles au Québec d’ici 2011, le gouvernement de Jean Charest compte sur les travailleurs spécialisés étrangers. Devant une centaine de gens d’affaires réunis ce matin lors de la première journée des travaux du 5e Forum économique international des Amériques, la ministre de l’Immigration et des Communautés culturelles, Yolande James, a soutenu que l’immigration était une partie de la réponse aux besoins en main-d’œuvre du Québec. «La diminution de la population active pourrait entraîner un ralentissement de l’activité économique», affirme Mme James en rappelant qu’en 2050 un Québécois sur trois aura 65 ans et plus. L’immigration: «une valeur ajoutée pour le Québec» Confronté au vieillissement de sa population, le Québec doit donc développer des «mesures audacieuses» pour recruter et retenir les travailleurs immigrants. «À l’heure actuelle, plusieurs pays se font concurrence pour attirer les travailleurs», signale la ministre James. Afin de tirer son épingle du jeu, le Québec a mis en place diverses mesures: priorisation du traitement des demandes des travailleurs qualifiés et accélération de leur arrivée au Québec, accompagnement spécialisé, renforcement de la francisation et signature d’une trentaine d’ententes avec des ordres professionnels pour faciliter l’accès des immigrants aux professions réglementées. Le gouvernement Charest souhaite attirer près 50 000 immigrants annuellement. Pour ce faire, il devra accueillir plus de 9000 immigrants supplémentaires au Québec au cours des prochaines années.

  9. I'm a huge James Bond fan. I happened to stumble upon this: It would be awesome in the 23rd 007 film (coming in 2011), if Bond made an appearance in Montreal (even if it was short). Just imagine James Bond walking along a cobblestone street in Old Montreal on his way to a rendez-vous with a local informant. He hasn't yet set foot in Canada yet in one of the movies. Montreal seems like the perfect location (although Quebec City and Newfoundland are close seconds). When you think about it: The producer of the original Bond films, Harry Saltzman was from Sherbrooke. Joseph Wiseman the first major Bond villain (Dr. No) was from Montreal. It would do wonders for the city's tourism industry and international image!
  10. I know its not a story about Montreal or another Canadian city, but it does have an affect on us all. Video Interesting video though. James Corner does make a good point though. If you clean something up and make it better, life comes back to that part of the city and people will pay.
  11. A Weekend in Old Montréal November 12, 2007 Nothing could be more romantic than taking a new flame (or an old love) to a European city for a long winter weekend. With the euro pounding the dollar, however, it makes sense to see the cobblestone streets and candlelit cafés closer to home. French speaking and cosmopolitan, Montréal is the perfect proxy for Paris, and a real value with the Canadian "loonie" at one to one with the dollar. Splurge on a limo from the airport (about $50) and settle into a boutique hotel in historic Old Montréal. Your ticket to sure-fire romance is just outside your hotel door. Best spa experience For the ultimate couple's massage in the most curiously cozy of environs, book a hot stone treatment at Le Spa. Converted from a vintage bank vault, the small space oozes peaceful luxury. Candlelight bounces off the brick ceiling, rugged stone walls, and a heated onyx floor. Le Spa in the Hôtel Le St James, 355 rue St-Jacques Most panoramic sunrise With the massive arc of the Biosphere peeking over the distant tree line, the clock tower at the north end of Vieux-Port provides an exceptional backdrop for dramatic morning skies. Gentle currents of the St. Lawrence River flow below your feet as the rising sunlight glistens off the Jacques Cartier Bridge on the near horizon. C'est magnifique! Vieux-Port at Quai de l'Horloge. Best place to sip wine Tuck yourself away in an alcove at Hôtel Le St James' tiny lounge, with its high-backed love seats and dim lighting. Black-clad waiters provide excellent -- but unobtrusive -- service, sliding roasted almonds in front of you and disappearing without a word. An impressive wine list features world-class wines by the glass (for under $15). Most decadent treat Forget the crème brûlée. It's child's play on the splurge scale when compared to Bistro Boris' pommes frittes (French fries). Deep fried in duck fat and dipped in spicy mayo, these fries are pure indulgence. Flickering candles and intimate tables set the scene at this diminutive eatery. Best place to hold hands As dusk fades to night, park yourself on a bench in the Place d'Armes -- across from Basilique Notre-Dame. Royal blue lights suddenly appear in the cathedral's windows and arches, mimicking the color of the darkening sky. Water trickles from the park's central fountain, casting an emerald glow. The effect is stunning. Don't miss a visit to the church earlier in the day. It's intricate interior is wonderfully rococo without being overly ornate. Most romantic cliché Although frightfully unoriginal -- and a bit expensive at $45 for 30 minutes -- an evening carriage ride through Old Montréal is still terribly romantic. Glimmering lanterns along Rue St-Paul and the clip-clop of the horse's hooves on the cobbled streets set the stage for cozy snuggling under faux fur blankets. Carriages line up in front of the Basilique Notre-Dame, 110 Rue Notre-Dame Ouest. Best reason to wander from Old Montréal Catch a taxi (or hop on the Metro) to rue Sherbrooke Ouest and impress your love with an afternoon of old-world elegance. Take high tea at the Ritz-Carlton's posh courtyard garden. Make sure to ask for a table on the heated terrace overlooking the duck pond. After tea, stroll across the street to the Musée des Beaux-Arts. The collection here features work by local artists and select works from both European and modern masters. Where to Eat The fries at Boris Bistro are a must, and the duck and salmon dishes are well prepared. Three-course meals with wine run $45-$55. Restaurant Gibby's is a Montréal institution. Steak and oysters live up to the hype. Three-course meals with wine run $60-$80. Skip dessert at Chez L'Epicier at your own risk. The menu features a chocolate "club sandwich," with sliced strawberries replacing the tomato, basil for lettuce, and chocolate for roast beef. The pineapple "fries" are sheer crispy sweetness. A three-course meal with wine runs $75-$100. Where to Stay Expedia offers great deals at the delightful Hotel XIX Siecle. Ranging from $125-$165 per night (depending on your travel dates), the rate includes parking and a European-style continental breakfast buffet. The location can't be beat -- it's near Basilique Notre-Dame and Le Spa. Slightly more upscale, Hotel Le Saint Sulpice is also in the heart of Old Montréal. Weekend rates start at $165 for a simple loft suite; $305 for a superior loft suite with breakfast and a spa credit. ---Dawn Hagin
  12. Leonardo DiCaprio et Kate Winslet de retour Un Titanic 2 pour l'an prochain! Toute l'équipe de 7Jours.ca / 7Jours 2009-04-01 07:18:35 James Cameron a été embauché par les studios Paramount pour réaliser un Titanic 2. C’est la dernière rumeur à circuler dans les couloirs des studios Paramount ce matin. Leonardo DiCaprio et Kate Winslet seraient de retour dans le Titanic 2 dont James Cameron s’apprête à débuter la production. Si aucune date de sortie du film n’a encore été divulguée, on sait que le réalisateur cherche activement un scénariste capable de relever cet immense défi. Car les attentes de Paramount sont élevées. En effet, Titanic a engrangé 1,84 milliard de revenus depuis sa sortie et a remporté 11 Oscars en 1997. De plus, Ginette Reno a été approchée pour interpréter la chanson-thème de ce Titanic 2 qui s’intitulera… «Je suis un poisson»! ;-) Bon 1er avril à tous nos lecteurs
