My father and I will be in Montreal until Saturday, visiting my brother Sasha.

On the way up from Toronto, we stopped at the Darlington Nuclear Generating Station. Unfortunately, there are no tours of the main complex. We were able to wander around the general area, as well as visit an information centre.

I put some photos on Flickr. Later, I got some of a ‘casserole’ protest in Montreal, near Rue St. Denis.

Student protesters target Quebec Liberals as provincial election kicks off

MONTREAL – Thousands of people marched in downtown Montreal on Wednesday night to send a message to Premier Jean Charest: the pots-and-pans-banging public is coming after his Quebec Liberals.

As the province was plunged into a summer election, student activists invited people to gather for a so-called casserole protest on the first night of the campaign.

Protesters who converged from several parts of the city not only banged pots and pans as they carried a red flag down St-Denis Street, they chanted loudly and set off fireworks.
