My thought is that the venerable thrift store pricing employee didn’t know what to make of him; otherwise, this unique guy must be worth more than $3.25, even in his homeland. (Similar-sized new ones from different companies are priced $84 to $75 online.) I plan to repatriate my moose head to my good friend, Marie Claude, in Quebec. Meanwhile, this moose is enjoying American basic cable, as he hangs out over the TV in the study. your turnThrift shop and yard sale enthusiasts, here’s your chance to let others gush over … [Read more...] about Thrifty Thursday: Shopper bags a stuffed moose while bargain hunting

Just hours after watching a television report suggesting Canada would accept immigrants spurned by President Trump, Mr. Bissonnette packed his Glock handgun and rifle, picked up a bottle of Smirnoff Ice, and trudged the snow-covered streets of Quebec to a nearby Islamic Cultural Center. As 53 men were finishing evening prayers, he unloaded 48 rounds. Six people were killed — several of them by shots to the head — and 19 were injured, one paralyzed for life. These details surfaced during a three-week sentencing hearing that ended late last month. Mr. Bissonnette faces up to 150 years in … [Read more...] about Quebec Mosque Shooter Was Consumed by Refugees, Trump and Far Right

(Cole Burston/Bloomberg News) There are cleavages in Canadian political life that are lively and familiar: say, the east vs. west geographic divide, or Quebec vs. rest-of-Canada. Then there are cleavages that are just as pronounced but more awkward to talk about, such as the stark gender divide separating Canada’s left from right. As Canada enters a string of high-profile elections at both the … [Read more...] about 2016 showed the depths of America’s gender divide. Canada’s could get even worse.

One of three young bears relocated from Hanover to the North Country last May after the governor’s intervention was shot and killed by a hunter in Canada a few weeks later, according to the Fish and Game Department.Andrew Timmins is the agency’s bear biologist; he oversaw the trapping, tagging and moving of the trio of yearlings on May 29. Timmins got a message on June 17 from a man in Quebec, saying that the man’s brother had shot a tagged bear in the town of Stornoway in the province of Quebec.That’s about 33 miles north of where the Hanover bears were released, Timmins said.Timmins said he tried unsuccessfully for months to contact the hunter; eventually he enlisted help from Fish and Game’s sister agency in Quebec. And on Wednesday, Canadian authorities confirmed that the bear’s tag matched that of one of the Hanover bears.The ursine trio became a cause célèbre after Gov. Chris Sununu countermanded Fish and Game’s plan to … [Read more...] about Bear saved by Gov. Sununu killed in Canada
Visit The Boston Globe Share on Twitter Share on Facebook Comment on this Scroll to top of page By Elizabeth Warkentin Globe correspondent April 04, 2018 Way back in the ’70s when I was attending elementary school in Montreal, the teachers would take us on class trips to a cabane à sucre, or sugar shack, in the nearby Laurentians or Eastern Townships. I have especially fond memories of these outings, a simple time when sugarbushes and shacks were family owned and no more than 50 people could be accommodated in a rustic dining room to clog their arteries with home-cooked habitant foods such as baked beans, pea soup, mashed potatoes, cretons (salt pork), pancakes, and tourtière (meat pie). For dessert there was always sugar pie, followed by a tire d’érable session, when molten maple sap was poured onto snow packed onto purpose-built wooden tables to make maple taffy.

Tech & Science Eggs Farming With Easter Sunday just days away, children across the country will be on the hunt for eggs—chicken and chocolate. Researchers, on the other hand, have been hunting for the secrets behind their shells. These shells—delicate but strong—could help scientists create new kinds of tiny structures. So, what makes the humble egg crack? Scientists from the United States, Canada, Germany and Spain have been working to solve the mystery. They discovered a particular protein is key to understanding, and reproducing, eggshells, according to research published this week in Science Advances. Eggs are pictured at a poultry farm in the settlement of Novozavedennoye in Stavropol region, Russia August 24, 2017. The research could help the food industry produce better eggs.

American actor Randy Quaid said in an interview that he could be deported from Canada next week and that he would like to resolve his legal issues in California and "move on with my life." In a phone interview with The Associated Press on Wednesday from a detention center in Laval, Quebec, Quaid said he was arrested by Canada Border Services while doing a regular check-in on Tuesday. "They won't allow me to remain," Quaid said. Immigration and Refugee Board spokesman Robert Gervais said Quaid will have a detention review hearing Thursday, and confirmed the arrest. Officials said they were unable to give further details. Quaid's bid for permanent residency in Canada was denied in 2012, and it can take years for deportation to follow. He was arrested in Montreal in May after becoming the subject of a nationwide arrest warrant when he stopped checking in border authorities. He later apologized and was released, with the requirement to check in every two weeks. Quaid said he has a … [Read more...] about CBS News Logo Randy Quaid says Canada could deport him next week
(LiveScience) Today New York City is the Big Apple of the Northeast but new research reveals that 500 years ago, at a time when Europeans were just beginning to visit the New World, a settlement on the north shore of Lake Ontario, in Canada, was the biggest, most complex, cosmopolitan place in the region. Occupied between roughly A.D. 1500 and 1530, the so-called Mantle site was settled by the Wendat (Huron). Excavations at the site, between 2003 and 2005, have uncovered its 98 longhouses, a palisade of three rows (a fence made of heavy wooden stakes and used for defense) and about 200,000 artifacts. Dozens of examples of art have been unearthed showing haunting human faces and depictions of animals, with analysis ongoing. Now, a scholarly book detailing the discoveries is being prepared and a documentary about the site called "Curse of the Axe" aired this week on the History Channel in Canada. "This is an Indiana Jones moment, this is huge," said Ron Williamson, an archaeologist who … [Read more...] about CBS News Logo Ancient “New York City” of Canada discovered
