Roger Taillibert, designer of Montreal's Olympic Stadium, dead at 93

  Roger Taillibert, designer of Montreal's Olympic Stadium, dead at 93 MONTREAL — Roger Taillibert, the architect who designed Montreal's Olympic Stadium, has died at the age of 93. The renowned French architect also created the Parc des Princes stadium in Paris and the Khalifa Stadium in Qatar. Taillibert's success in France in the 1960s and early 1970s attracted the attention of then-Montreal mayor Jean Drapeau, who asked him to design a stadium to house the 1976 Olympics and later the Montreal Expos baseball team.Taillibert's vision for the Olympic Stadium included a massive concrete dome with a retractable roof, held up by cables suspended from the world's largest inclined tower, at 165 metres high.

We only had a day and a half there, but that was enough time to wander the cobbled streets, catch some street performances, and visit many of the top attractions. We're now walking along Rue St. Paul and this is a great place to browse for antiques and you can buy some souvenirs.

Thanks to the Ville de Québec, you can now buy the retro seats from the Québec Nordiques stadium and sit on a piece of history.

While the Nordiques and the Colisée Pepsi have long been a thing of the past, they will likely never be forgotten in the collective memory of people who live in Quebec... and even some hockey lovers who just liked having another Canadian team in the NHL.

Macpherson: What Legault says when he thinks non-francophones aren't listening

  Macpherson: What Legault says when he thinks non-francophones aren't listening Justin Trudeau isn’t the only current political leader who has had a “brownface” incident in his past come to light two decades later. Quebec Premier François Legault has had one of his own. Only his didn’t involve makeup, it apparently wasn’t a joke, and it occurred after he had entered politics. In accepting his nomination as a Parti Québécois candidate in 1998, Legault told his PQ riding association that he had been raised in Montreal’s West Island among the English, “and I hate them as much as you do.

1980–81 Quebec Nordiques season. Edit. The 1980–81 Quebec Nordiques season was the Nordiques second season in the National Hockey League. Quebec improved on their inaugural NHL season, making the playoffs, only to lose in the first round.

But, since that is nothing but a dream for right now, the best thing you can do is commemorate that special time in our history.

Which is why the Ville de Québec is now going to be selling the iconic benches from the Colisée Pepsi to super fans and collectors alike.

Some 500 people have already laid claim on theirs, according to the Montreal Gazette, but that still leaves about 3,500 up for grabs.

The city is selling the seats for $30 each, as pairs, and if you're looking to really create a collector's item, you can also get the bench signed by a former Nordiques player.

To have your bench signed you'll need to dish out an extra $25, but those proceeds will be going to charity.

These days it's not uncommon to see the benches of the old Forum, the arena where the Montreal Canadiens used to play, perched against the wall in a pub or barber shop.

  A 338Canada projection: Have the Tories blown it in Quebec? Philippe J. Fournier: The Conservatives have fallen behind the surging Bloc, cutting the odds of seat gains needed to win the electionFor the first three weeks of the campaign, Blanchet toured Quebec and was pretty much ignored by all other federal leaders. It was not necessarily an unsound strategy: why give attention to the Bloc if it is just going to rile up Quebec sovereigntists? Best not to poke the sleeping bear, Liberals and Conservatives alike appear to be thinking.

The 1982–83 Quebec Nordiques season was the Nordiques fourth season in the National Hockey League. In the 1981–82 season, Quebec recorded their first winning season in the NHL, as they had a record of 33-31-16, earning 82 points, in which they finished fourth in the Adams Division

So, now, les super fans d'hockey are going to have a chance to double up their memorabilia by adding some benches from the Nordiques' arena as well.

The benches seen in the photo above (and in the lower half of the cover image) are plastic blue seats that will be re-used by "municipalities, schools and other institutions," according to the Gazette.

The blue benches also outnumber the white benches significantly, at 11,000, meaning they are also far less rare.

The blue seats also were not part of the stadium when it was inaugurated in 1949, so they're obviously not as worth collecting.

Bloc on the rise, along with calls for separation in Alberta

  Bloc on the rise, along with calls for separation in Alberta OTTAWA — Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau dismissed any notion that national unity is under threat Wednesday as he and other national leaders made efforts to beat back growing support for the Bloc Quebecois. The Bloc was almost defunct 18 months ago, but under the leadership of former Quebec provincial politician Yves-Francois Blanchet, the party is making a significant comeback. Polls and seat projections suggest it might win 20 seats or more inThe Bloc was almost defunct 18 months ago, but under the leadership of former Quebec provincial politician Yves-Francois Blanchet, the party is making a significant comeback.

The long-suffering supporters of the Quebec Nordiques - an NHL franchise that was relocated to Colorado 20 years ago - now have a shiny new stadium in which to enjoy their national sport. The only problem? Until the league awards the city a new franchise they still don't have a team to play there.

This is a list of the seasons of the defunct Quebec Nordiques NHL/WHA professional ice hockey club. Note: GP = Games played, W = Wins, L = Losses, T = Ties, Pts = Points, GF = Goals scored for, GA = Goals scored against, PIM = Penalty minutes.

To purchase one of the white benches that are for sale, head to the Ville de Québec website here.

The sale is happening on October 19th and 20th and individuals will be allowed to purchase up to 12 benches per person... so consider creating that mini-theatre in your living room you've always dreamt of, and make it extra special with these historic benches!

In another turn down Quebec sports memory lane, the dream of a baseball stadium is being talked about yet again for the Montreal area.

This time, the proposition is to put a stadium in Pointe-Saint-Charles where there is currently some federal land up for grabs.

Some disinterested parties claim that land is meant to be used for public good, not a stadium with luxury real estate attached, but there's no denying that sports can play a great part in the livelihood of a city or borough.

But the other major question is how to get a stadium amount of people in and out with such minimal access, to which those involved cited the R.E.M train.

Details on that when they arise!

Election 2019: What happens if it's a minority government? .
With polls showing the Liberals and Conservatives in a dead heat, thanks in part to Quebec’s volatile electorate, the possibility of a minority government is looming.

Canada has had 12 minority governments in its history, Quebec just three, most of them short-lived.
