French citizen's bid to immigrate to Quebec moving forward — after spat over her thesis

  French citizen's bid to immigrate to Quebec moving forward — after spat over her thesis A French citizen who was told her immigration application to Quebec was rejected because one chapter of her PhD thesis was in English has been told her application will move forward after all. Émilie Dubois applied to come to the province after completing a PhD at French-language Laval University in Quebec City. In a letter sent to Dubois earlier this year, the Immigration Ministry said the 31-year-old French native had not demonstrated she had the level of French required to receive a Quebec selection certificate, the first step toward permanent residency, under the province's experience program.

Oliver Bjorkstrand provided two goals as the Blue Jackets scored five unanswered to power past the Canadiens in a 6- 2 victory.

The Canadiens tied the score 1-all at 16:31 when Lehkonen scored his third goal of the season off a pass through traffic from Phillip Danault.

Montreal took a 2-1 lead at 4:29 of the second as Armia camped in front of the net and buried a deflection of Ben Chiarot’s shot from the left boards. Armia’s seventh goal of the season broke a nine-game scoreless streak.

Bemstrom forced a turnover behind the net at 12:50 of the second and sent it to Dubois, who buried an off-balance shot to Price’s blocker side for his team-leading eighth goal and 12th point. Bemstrom’s assist extended his point streak to five games (two goals, three assists), tying the club’s rookie record set by Dubois in 2018.

Bemstrom put the Blue Jackets ahead 3-2 at 6:54 on their first shot of the third period, as the puck ricocheted off the glass behind the net and bounced off Price for the score. Sonny Milano and Dubois were credited with assists.

Sergei Bobrovsky made 34 saves and Seth Jones recorded two points, as five different Blue Jackets scored in a 5 -1 win against the Sabres.

Jenner gave Columbus an insurance goal at 11:06, just 20 seconds into a power play, by redirecting Oliver Bjorkstrand’s shot to make it 4-2.

Stu Cowan: Firing Claude Julien won't solve Canadiens' problems .
It’s easy to blame head coach Claude Julien for the Canadiens’ eight-game winless streak. Too easy. It wasn’t Julien who boastfully gave Andrei Markov and Alexander Radulov “first-come, first-served” contract offers after the 2016-17 season and then watched them both leave, getting absolutely nothing in return for the two veterans. It isn’t Julien who is paying defenceman Karl Alzner US$4.625 million a year to play for the AHL’s Laval Rocket with two more seasons after this remaining on his five-year, US$23.125-million contract. © Pierre Obendrauf Columbus Blue Jackets’ Eric Robinson scores on Canadiens goaltender Carey Price during first period in Montreal on Nov.
