Three days in Montreal

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.

In the spring of 2005, I graduated from the University of British Columbia with a degree in International Relations and a general focus in the area of environmental politics. In the fall of 2005, I began reading for an M.Phil in IR at Wadham College, Oxford. Outside school, I am very interested in photography, writing, and the outdoors. I am writing this blog to keep in touch with friends and family around the world, provide a more personal view of graduate student life in Oxford, and pass on some lessons I've learned here.

  1. 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.
