News in English, Quebec Metropolitan Area, June 1st, 2012

Hello Quebec,

With there seemingly being no let up to the Quebec Student Protest, and the pot banging contining unabated, we bring you two contrasting views this week on that subject – one from a sixty-something Quebec City resident, the other from a twenty-something Quebec student.
Elsewhere, we have a competition running for a free book, Sarah Williams has been eating on our behalf and the Festival d’été de Québec confirm that Lionel Richie will be performing at this year’s event (let the swooning commence).
Finally, last call for next week’s author event in AngloStore – Wednesday June 6th (further details below).

Whatever you’re up to, have a great weekend and enjoy the read.
