--March 20, 2017. Most people driving into Montreal have no idea that the road exiting off the Victoria Bridge runs over the burial place for 6,000 Irish immigrants. Even most Montrealers are unaware of the significance of the large black stone sitting in the median at that same exit.

Under the direction of the United Irish Societies of Montreal, Montreal's famous St. Patrick’s Parade is one of the oldest and largest of its kind in North America.

(Reflection)
--November 21, 2016. The snow fell heavily, as the storm outside began to blow patches of white through the trees. It was early morning on a weekday, the street lamps were still lit, as we stayed snug in our warm beds. Sunrise had already arrived, yet the light through our frosted windows, dimmed the daylight into the dark, misty light only found in the midst of a storm. One by one, our daily alarms went off, awakening the house to another predictable day. While wiping our eyes and awakening, we were unaware of the gift that we were all about to receive.

The 6th annual meeting of the Arts, Culture and Heritage Working Group, organized by the Department of Canadian Heritage (PCH) and co-hosted by PCH, QAHN and ELAN, took place at Thompson House on the campus of McGill University. Despite horrendous driving conditions (snow and freezing rain), the turn-out was excellent, as were the exchanges between representatives of the various cultural and heritage groups present and the participating federal government departments.
