  1. Last week, Quebec gave some additional funding to 2 English CEGEP's (and one French CEGEP) to increase enrolment due to the application crunch. Mme. Courchesne stated that this was done so that anglophones could attend an anglophone CEGEP. The statement was later "clarified" that this applied only to the current crunch. Given that some in the PQ want English CEGEP's available only to Anglophones (although Pauline Marois is hesitant to endorse this), does anyone see the following scenario unfolding? English CEGEP's enrolment will be frozen at or near current levels. First priority for admission will be anglophones with a Certificate of Eligibility. Second priority for admission will be anglophone immigrants. Any remaining spaces would be available to other immigrants and francophones.

"I would like to congratulate and thank Air Canada for adding San Juan, Puerto Rico to its already impressive list of non-stop destinations served from Montreal," said James Cherry, President and Chief Executive Officer of Aéroports de Montréal. "This new service will offer one more option to our passengers seeking to diversify their sun destinations."

  3. http://montrealgazette.com/news/local-news/montreal-working-group-formed-to-improve-citys-business-outlook Montreal has considerable assets when we think of our quality of life, of our spot as the second largest pool of higher-education students in North America and certainly when we think of how safe it is…” Hubert said. There should be a working group that looks at how to retain students. It's all about retention. Students come here from abroad, live for cheap, party hard and then leave. Aside from high taxes, this should be highest priority.

  5. Montreal Forum adds a touch of Dawson College class Brenda Branswell Montreal Gazette August 9, 2010 MONTREAL - Some Dawson College students will have classes this year in a place they probably never expected to study - the old Montreal Forum. The downtown college is renting additional space in the Pepsi Forum because of an influx of 300 additional students. Dawson is creating nine classrooms in the building, including two computer labs for students who are studying social sciences, said Donna Varrica, a college spokesperson. Dawson is one of several colleges that is accepting more students for the coming school year. The decision to take in extra students came in June when the Quebec government announced it would inject more than $1 million to deal with the space problem at Montreal Island's crowded CEGEPs. Varrica said the top priority for Dawson was to find extra space that wasn't far from the college.
