Wakefield resident urban experience

On March 5th, we were attending the ash Wednesday mass at Our Lady of Assumption church in Vanier. As we entered the church we acknowledged the presence of the older Filipina ladies who are the church ushers. They always sit in the last benches in the back of the church. They also act as the greeting comittee and also sell homemade Filipino goodies after the mass. These ladies are a fine example of the human race as they are such caring people.

Song to bring anglos and francos closer

Local hip hop artist David Hodges wrote Notre Home because he says he believes the future of improving anglophone and francophone relations is through the province’s youth.

“Notre Home is another way of inspiring kids to really value that this is my home, this is where I belong,” he said.

His song is part of a $20 000 government project to bring the two solitudes closer together.

“You’re here to stay. We want you to be here to stay and let’s work together on evenrything,” says Quebec minister responsible for anglo relations, Jean-Francois Lisée.
