Latest Update on Domaine d’été des Pères Sainte-Croix

On Nov 20th of this year, I posted about an «ONLINE PETITION! Domaine d’été des Pères Sainte-Croix» in which I said that “The Outaouais Heritage WebMagazine of the Quebec Anglophone Heritage Network has an online petition to help save a beautiful and unique piece of Quebec’s religious heritage.

The Domaine d’été des Pères Sainte-Croix located at 1565 chemin des Pères, Lac-Simon, is currently threatened by developers.”

I just received a note from Chantal Crête, saying that the “Municipality of Lac-Simon will have a public consultation on the subject on December 8th 2012 from 9AM-noon. It will be an important day to voice our opinions on the importance to protect this important piece of our heritage.

She is encouraging everyone to please SIGN the petition and make sure to SHARE the link with friends and family.

She can be reached at ccretcha@sympatico.ca

Library 2.0

Here is another new idea about libraries that has been brought to life by people from the north end part of the city of Vancouver! Could it be used for history and genealogical books?

The story is covered by Layne Christensen in the North Shore News in www.nsnews.com/news/Library+balancing+books+bytes/7607005/story.html
