They lure you in by preying on what’s left of your childlike wonder. They dazzle you with complex mechanics. They inexplicably upset your stomach. And they come back to downtown Montreal.

Ogilvy’s famous holiday displays are back at the McCord Stewart Museum this year. Passers-by on Sherbrooke Street will be able to stop and appreciate the elaborate animatronic tableaux, titled The mill in the forestand The enchanted villagefrom Friday 25 November.

The scenes are a nostalgic holiday fantasy spectacle, with anthropomorphized creatures in pastoral landscapes – tiny, insignificant beings doomed to gleefully stage endless performances of romanticized hard work and seemingly innocent land exploitation. It is essentially a satire of the mundane routines that belie the horrors of colonial capitalism.

In any event.

The cases date from 1947, but only came under the management of the McCord Stewart Museum in 2018. In a press release, the museum says the cases are “among the last of their kind in North America” ​​and recall “the magic of other large department store windows, such as Macy’s New York and Galeries Lafayette in Paris.”

They will stay until January 8.

PUT A RING ON IT: The student group BEYONCE performs in Montreal at Pub McLean. The band landed the gig after canvassing venues across the city.

After canvassing pub after pub in Montreal, student band Bowdoin Éireann Ye Olde Neo-Celtic Ensemble (BEYONCE) played their first Canadian show at Pub McLean in Montreal this past weekend.

The group formed in the fall of 2019 when Natsumi Meyer ’23 and Luke Bartol ’23 returned from their orientation trip.

“We were on a backpacking orientation trip and we kind of started talking about fiddle music, Irish music and Irish dancing during the four days we traveled together. Then after we got back, we formed the original BEYONCE, which was a club with Luke and me and our orientation travel manager, among other people who have now graduated,” Meyer said.

They later brought in Sydney Cox ’23, Mia Schwartz ’25 and Colin Vernet ’25. Schwartz became their “gig master,” often calling on cold dates to inquire about performances. When the band became interested in playing in Montreal, Schwartz lived up to their title. The call to Pub McLean was successful, but they didn’t know what to expect when they arrived.

“We didn’t know if the crowd would be receptive or if they would like the style of music we were playing, but it was definitely a hit,” Meyer said. “People were really into it.”

The members talked about the individuality of Irish music and how uniqueness seems to bring people together. They said that trend continued in their performance in Montreal.

“It’s so obscure that hardly anyone can really relate to it, but everyone can relate to it because it’s so specific,” Schwartz said.

Vernet echoed Schwartz’s sentiment.

“If you market to everyone, you market to nobody, so if you market to nobody, you market to everyone,” Vernet said.

The group felt that the show in Canada was particularly exciting and recognized that there was a thread of spontaneity in the setlists of each performance.

“We certainly read a crowd a lot or think about who is going to listen to us. And what I really like is that we’re never really set on the order in which we do things, and I think that helps our relationship with our audience,” Meyer said.

In Montreal, their sense of spontaneity came to fruition when a spectator asked them to play drums.

“He came up to us and was like, ‘Nobody’s playing drums. Can I?'” Schwartz recalled. “It sounded funky, but it was a lot of fun.”

BEYONCE, who is currently working on renaming herself Yonce, is focused on having fun as a group through everything.

“I think that’s the root of it. It’s cool to make money from these gigs and perform, but at the end of the day, we’re all having fun,” Bartol said.

Vernet plays the guitar and occasionally the violin; Schwartz mainly plays the violin and sings; Meyer fiddles, sings or dances in addition to occasionally drumming; Bartol plays violin and mandolin and Sydney Cox ’23 violins, dances and drums. Obviously, each member takes on a variety of roles within the band, each having varying degrees of knowledge about most of the instruments involved.

“We actually tried to do a song where we all spin our instruments because we’re almost at the point where we can all do anything,” Meyer said.

BEYONCE’s music has not gone unnoticed in Canada.

“People came up to us and said, ‘I need to give you a hug,’ or people were taking pictures with us,” Schwartz said.

The songs played by BEYONCE are mostly traditional songs passed down from generation to generation, which means that many who listen to them find songs that resonate with their personal history or traditions.

“It’s really nice to see how music applies to people, no matter how old they are. It’s really for everyone,” Schwartz said.

The group intends to record their songs, but for now they will continue in college and play whenever they can.

The Montreal Force opened its inaugural season in the Premier Hockey Federation by sharing a pair of road games against the Buffalo Beauts.

Content of the article

The Force women’s hockey professional expansion team started with a 5-4 win Saturday in a game that required an eight-round shootout before Samantha Isbell clinched the winner.

Content of the article

But a solid goalkeeping performance from Tera Hofmann saw the Beauts escape with a 3-2 win on Sunday. La Force outscored the home side 33-18, but Hofmann proved tough to beat.

Montreal came back from a 2-0 deficit on a second-period goal from Deziray De Sousa and a goal from Kristina Shanahan early in the third period. But Autumn MacDougall caught a stretch pass from Anjelica Diffendal and beat Mare-Soleil Deschènes on a breakaway for the game-winning goal at 8:10 of the third period. MacDougall struggled to control the puck as she headed the net, but managed to get it over Deschène’s blocker.

Content of the article

Neither team scored on the power play, but Montreal coach Peter Smith struggled to manage his lines because the Force were shorthanded six times. The Beauts had to kill three penalties.

“It was a good game today,” Smith said. “We have done a lot of good things in many ways. We played better today than yesterday. At five against five, we controlled the game, but we have to stay outside the penalty area. All in all a good weekend for the group. OWe need to play games and that’s a good start.

The Force had only one exhibition game before the season.

On Saturday, the Force took a 4-3 lead on third period goals from Sarah Lefort and Kim Deschênes, but Claudia Kepler scored at 16:33 to send the game into overtime.

Captain Ann-Sophie Bettez and Jade Downie-Landry scored the other Montreal goals.

La Force has the weekend off before playing two games in Montreal against the New Jersey Metropolitan Riveters. They play at the Verdun Auditorium on November 26 at 2 p.m. and the next afternoon at the Raymond Bourque arena in St-Laurent.

Sloly said police were overwhelmed as thousands of trucks, other vehicles and protesters poured into the city and converged near Parliament Hill.

Content of the article

Former Ottawa Police Chief Peter Sloly testified Friday at the public inquiry into the federal government’s use of the Emergencies Act to extricate Freedom Convoy protesters. Sloly resigned the day after Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced the legislation would be triggered in February. He resigned from his post amid widespread criticism of the force’s handling of protests, which congested the streets around Parliament Hill for three weeks, and as pressure mounted to remove heavy trucks.

It took only a few hours on that cold Saturday in January for Peter Sloly to see his previous understanding of the “freedom ferry” crumble and realize he had an occupation of the capital on his hands, said said the former Ottawa police chief during a public inquiry on Friday.

The scramble by police over the next few days to come up with a plan to get out the crowds and heavy trucks that were blocking downtown Ottawa at one point prompted a senior officer to suggest they might want to do call in the army, the investigation also learned.

The ex-chief was a much-anticipated witness to the Emergency Public Order Commission, which is examining the Liberal government’s unprecedented decision to invoke the Emergencies Act to help clear blocking protesters the streets around Parliament Hill and several border crossings.

Sloly resigned on Feb. 15, the day after Prime Minister Justin Trudeau invoked the law, amid widespread criticism of how he and Ottawa police handled the week-long protest.

The Emergencies Act is intended to be used when an urgent, critical and temporary situation threatens the life, health or safety of Canadians, whether the provinces are believed to lack the capacity or the authority to react and that the crisis cannot be managed effectively with existing laws.

During his testimony on Friday, Sloly defended his reading of intelligence reports and briefings he received in the days before protesters were expected to arrive in Ottawa on January 28, which he says led him to believe that the protest against the COVID-19 mandates would largely be a three-day event, with some protesters later setting up a “tent city” in a park.

The commission, which has scheduled public hearings in Ottawa until Nov. 25, has already been told that the OPP provides regular intelligence updates to Ottawa police. Copies of these reports, which warned that protesters might refuse to leave, were submitted to the investigation as evidence.

These reports showed officers reporting that those heading to Ottawa had no date in mind to leave and how their plans to bring in heavy equipment suggested they intended to dig and had the means. financial to do so.

Despite this, Sloly testified that he thought most would leave after the weekend, until the “Freedom Convoy” protest, which saw trucks arriving on January 28, really started on January 29.

‘The nine o’clock briefing I received on Saturday morning… was still talking about a weekend event,’ he told the inquest.

Hours later Sloly testified, he realized he was dealing with something completely different. He said police were overwhelmed as thousands of trucks, other vehicles and protesters poured into the city and converged near Parliament Hill.

“It happened so fast.”

Tears welled up in the former chief’s eyes and he stopped when commission counsel asked how his officers handled that first weekend.

“They were doing their best under inhumane circumstances,” Sloly said.

“It was too cold and it was too much.”

Sloly also said he doesn’t believe he has the legal status under the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms to stop protesters from parking their trucks and other vehicles downtown.

“I’m a policeman, not a lawyer,” he said.

The former leader says that not just one “freedom convoy”, but several descended on the city. He asked why he didn’t receive intelligence from federal agencies about what was happening as protesters moved from different points across the country.

Sloly told the commission that in the days after the protesters arrived, the highest ranks of the police suffered from disorganization and a lack of communication about developing a plan to end the protests. blockages.

Minutes of a Feb. 1 meeting between Sloly and other senior officers show that as they discussed various enforcement options, Deputy Chief Patricia Ferguson asked about “the possibility that military are called or a state of emergency is declared”.

Sloly replied indicating that everything was on the table.

On Friday, Sloly was also asked about a public comment he made the day after the meeting, when he shared that he was “increasingly concerned that there is no solution. police to that”. The remark caused much confusion at the time.

“It was a national event,” Sloly said Friday. He said he was referring to the fact that the size and scale of the protest was too much for a single police force to handle. He admitted that in hindsight he should have been clearer about what he meant.

Sloly began his testimony on Friday by calling himself an “outsider” chief, who was hired in 2019 after spending more than 20 years with the Toronto police.

He says the Ottawa Police Board hired him to set the culture within the force and to build trust with Black, Indigenous and other racialized communities in the city.

He testified that in the spring of 2020 his leadership was challenged by the COVID-19 pandemic, a senior executive reshuffle and louder calls to withdraw police funding after the police killing of George Floyd. , a black man in Minneapolis.

Montreal City Council unanimously adopted a motion encouraging young people to get involved in politics.

“We want to hear from young people, we don’t want them to settle down,” said Montreal Mayor Valérie Plante, who tabled the motion on Monday. “We need to hear them, to see how they feel.”

She didn’t mince words in her criticism of Anjou borough mayor Luis Miranda, who recently came under fire for his reaction when a teenager came to speak to her at the borough council.

“This incident has caused harm to our entire society,” she said. “When an elected official, an adult, whatever their level or their party, acts like this, it affects the way we all work.”

“It seriously undermines the relationship of trust that we work to build with young people, and we cannot tolerate this kind of behavior,” she said.

Incident seen thousands of times

Hocine Ouendi – then 15 – had appeared before Miranda at a borough council meeting in early October. Ouendi said he was disappointed that the borough decided to close several football fields without notice.

Miranda – visibly irritated – responded with a tirade, saying the decision to close the fields was made following the “incivility” of “the majority” of young people who go there.

“Me, at 15, I wouldn’t have come to confront the mayor like you did. I don’t know why it’s you. It should have been your father or your mother who should have been there”, a- he declared.

A teenager wants an apology from the mayor of Anjou for his tirade

Hocine Ouendi – then 15 – spoke at a borough council meeting about the closure of football grounds, prompting an angry reaction from borough mayor Luis Miranda.

Miranda added that he doesn’t have this problem with other sports, such as hockey and baseball – a comment that some have interpreted as discriminatory towards young people from immigrant communities, who tend to gravitate towards soccer.

Alia Hassan Cournol, municipal councilor for the Mercier–Hochelaga-Maisonneuve borough, said that as a young Arab woman in politics, hearing these comments made her furious.

“To group young people – young people from specific communities, young Muslims – in this way in a municipal council… is unacceptable.

Miranda, who was present at the city council on Monday, apologized “for [his] reaction”, but said he did not regret the closure of the football grounds, saying he had to do something to reassure the population.

“We wouldn’t be here if the mayor [Plante] had met its public safety commitments,” he said.

Miranda nevertheless voted for the motion.

According to Radio-Canada, two of the three soccer fields in Anjou at the origin of the incident reopened discreetly last weekend.

After scouting the Washington Capitals for an early 2-0 lead, the Senators staged an impressive rally, gradually pulling the game off, coming back all the way for a 5-2 win.

Content of the article

Rookie center Shane Pinto broke the 2-2 deadlock in the third period, finishing off a pass from Tyler Motte and beating Capitals goaltender Darcy Kuemper. Pinto has now scored in three consecutive games, establishing a presence with his quick late-game exit.

Just seconds after Pinto’s goal, Senators goaltender Anton Forsberg made a spectacular glove save against Marcus Johansson, throwing himself through the crease for the save.

“I was just trying to get something out there and I guess I was a little lucky he hit my glove,” Forsberg said. “Obviously it was one of those saves you wanted to make as a kid, so it was good.”

Motte and Alex DeBrincat then iced the game, both scoring their first goals as Senators in an empty net at the last minute.

Senators coach DJ Smith credited his team’s resilience for allowing them to recover from a slow start.

“It’s a different team here,” he said. “There is more maturity and they are able to be calmer and they are able to step up a gear. Obviously we weren’t in the kit we wanted to be in (in the first half), but give that dressing room credit. These guys, what they did was they prepared for second and third.

The Senators have now won the first two games of their extended five-game home stretch, tying their early-season record at 2-2.

Tuesday’s crowd of 14,210 at the Canadian Tire Center offered polite applause for the opening ceremony, which included a video tribute to the late former Senators owner Eugene Melnyk. His daughters, Anna and Olivia, threw the ceremonial first puck and a Melnyk banner was unveiled in the rafters and now hangs next to those honoring Frank Finnigan, Daniel Alfredsson and Chris Phillips.

Unlike Tuesday’s home opener, when they scored a goal, it took the Senators a while to get their legs back.

The story of the first two periods was all about power plays. The Capitals took the man advantage twice in the first period, with TJ Oshie and Anthony Mantha recording the damage.

Drake Batherson responded with a pair of second-period power-play goals, sending the game to a 2-2 stalemate in the third period.

The incoming Capitals, meanwhile, were a battered bunch. The injured list includes Niklas Backstrom, Carl Hagelin, Tom Wilson and former senator Connor Brown.

Also, Evgeny Kuznetsov was out of the lineup, serving a one-game suspension for Kyle Burroughs of the Vancouver Canucks.

Still, the Capitals were on a two-game winning streak as they took to the ice at the Canadian Tire Centre.

Of course, there’s always the Alex Ovechkin watch, as he tries to chase Wayne Gretzky for the NHL’s all-time scoring record.

At the tender age of 37 and sporting plenty of gray hair, Ovechkin still has the magic touch, entering the competition with two goals and three assists in his first four games this season.

Oshie scored with the two-man advantage and Mantha followed 34 seconds later with the Capitals still on the power play.

In the second period, it was time for the Senators power play to shine.

Batherson got the Senators on the board in a 4-on-3 situation, finishing off a deft passing game involving Alex DeBrincat and Brady Tkachuk.

Just 1:51 later, Batherson scored again on the power play, heading for the net to grab his own rebound and bury it past Capitals goaltender Darcy Kuemper, setting the stage for the final touch of the third period.

“Inflation is a reality, and we must adjust our prices to this reality.”

Beer lovers should prepare for price increases in the coming months as costs such as shipping continue to climb, said the general manager of Molson Coors Canada.

“The only thing you have to do is look at the outside environment, and you know we have no choice but to raise beer prices,” President Frédéric Landtmeters said in an interview with the company’s new brewery in Longueuil.

“Inflation is a reality and we must adjust our prices to this reality. But I’m not going to comment on future plans. We are not ready to announce it yet.

Molson Coors said in August that it expects “inflationary pressures” in areas such as inputs and transportation costs to weigh on profit margins in the second half of 2022. As a result, CEO Gavin Hattersley said told analysts the company would raise U.S. prices on average. 3 to 5% in the fourth quarter, depending on the region. He did not discuss pricing plans for the Canadian market.

About 80% of the company’s revenue — and more than 90% of pre-tax revenue — comes from the Americas.

Canada’s annual inflation rate slowed to 7% in August thanks to lower gasoline prices and slowing housing costs, Statistics Canada said Sept. 20. However, prices for food purchased from stores rose 10.8%, more than triple the 3.5% increase recorded for alcoholic beverages, tobacco and recreational cannabis.

“So far, beer has been a relatively small category if you compare it to other food and beverage categories,” Landtmeters said. “It is fair to say that we have scenarios for various inflationary developments. We look at the forecasts of the major banks. We must be prepared for all possibilities. We have to make sure our prices are the right ones.

Landtmeters spoke after taking part in a media tour of the new Longueuil facility, which took over from the company’s historic Notre-Dame St. E. brewery after the 235-year-old production site closed at the end of 2021.

Construction of the one million square foot plant in Longueuil took about three years and cost about $525 million. Molson Coors now occupies approximately 6 million square feet of real estate on the South Shore, across from St-Hubert Airport.

With its 36 stainless steel fermentation tanks, Longueuil has a maximum capacity of 2.3 million hectoliters, compared to the 3.8 million that the Notre-Dame Street brewery could produce. The smaller capacity “is better aligned with our market,” said general manager Tim Crease.

Traditional beers such as Molson Export, Molson Canadian and Coors Light are brewed on site in bottles, cans and kegs, as are newer additions such as Belgian Moon. The Longueuil brewery uses about 40% less water and energy than its predecessor, said Valérie Fraser, head of brewing at the new plant.

Including executives and production employees, approximately 420 people work at the Longueuil site in activities such as production and distribution, says Molson Coors.

Production in Longueuil was disrupted by an 11-week strike by unionized employees that ended in June with the ratification of a new five-year collective agreement. Molson Coors does not expect to reach normal brewery shipping levels until the fourth quarter, Hattersley said in August.

“We are continuing to grow. It takes time to reach maximum capacity, effectiveness and efficiency,” Landtmeters said. “The strike was obviously something we hadn’t anticipated. This is a page that I would really like to turn and that I look forward to.

And while the Teamsters Canada union says the new deal has resulted in average wage increases of at least 17% over five years, Landtmeters insists the added labor costs won’t hurt the competitiveness of the site.

“Our goal has always been to find a way to shake hands on a deal that was good for the brewery workers and viable for the business. I think it’s fair to say we got there,” he said. “We believe we can be competitive in the future, based on the agreement we have with the workers here.”
