English News in Quebec, 30th November, 2012
Hello Life in Quebec(ers),
Difficult to know just where to begin this week, so many talking points, so much to mull over.
Some of it good, some of it not so.

Massive, massive congratulations to Laval University’s Rouge et or football team for winning the 2012 Vanier Cup.
The banner in the photo above caused quite a stir, so much so that this opinion piece posted earlier in the week went viral:

Racist, Inflammatory, or Just a Bit of Harmless Fun?

If you haven’t read it yet (if not, where have you been hiding?), do have a look at it. Your opinion counts.

This in turn spurned responses about Bill 101, and a piece by Ross Murray about his (possibly) bigoted dog.

Farnell Morisset talks of his speech at the recent Future Forum (you might be surprised on his take on the size of the English-speaking community in this part of Quebec), and Sarah Wlliams writes about Christmas shopping in the region.

It’s the final day of Movember and, therefore the MoMen still need your support, and the competition to win a signed copy of La Coupe à Québec is also going strong.

As always, if ever you want something published on LifeinQuebec.com, contact us in the usual manner here.

Thanks for your support.

Please do keep spreading the word and forwarding on this newsletter.
