Au programme des activités extra-congrès : un tour à pied du Vieux-Montréal de 3h30 !!! J'ai aucun problème. Je peux le faire. J'ai du contenu pour une journée entière s'il le faut mais je sais par expérience que c'est 90 minutes de trop !! Je me demande si c'est une des agences avec laquelle jetravaille qui a eu le contrat ?
