Web and paper

Web et papier

You were wondering where I was gone, because my chronic no longer appeared in the “paper” of the Journal de Québec for some time. Please note that my more faithful readers have continued, during the pandemic, follow me on the web version of the Journal with chronic reduced because of the sharp decrease in social activities in Québec and elsewhere. Here I am again available to do it “echoes over the city” of your activities and other news of interest. The publication of my review will also continue on the web. My e-mail address to reach me is always the same:

World day of the african child

On 16 June, the african coalitions of the global call to Action against poverty are organising simultaneous actions to mark the occasion for the Day of the african child. The Day of the african child is an annual event that commemorates the massacre of children in Soweto on 16 June 1976 by the Apartheid regime. The coalitions of the global call to Action against poverty have chosen this opportunity to make the african Day of the white headband and to make a regional application, with leaders, so that they act immediately to eradicate the extreme poverty which causes the death of a child every 3 seconds.

The mp has once again presented the flag honoring the first responders who are fighting the COVID-19 daily. This flag, which saw the light of day in New England, inspires sharing, and compliance and brand support for health professionals who are redoubling their efforts to win this battle.

Not only Quebec was losing in the first round for the benefit of Salt Lake City, but finished fourth with just seven votes to 89, in which the two voices of the canadian olympic Committee.
