I was a size 6 once. I vaguely remember the first time I got to carry my size 6 pants to the register, feeling weak and feeble hoping I had carrots at home.
Vegas may not be considered the most family-friendly destination, but if you get creative, you can make sure the little ones end up with an unforgettable trip. And we don't mean that in a Hangover kind of way.
The former host of Tough Crowd took time to call out the industry -- producers, agents, managers et al -- for their questionable practices, one of which was the cancellation of Tough Crowd.
If you're a parent who is strapped by a limited income but still wishes you could spoil your children with various toys, an alternative solution might be closer than you think. Most family and community centres have toy libraries, where parents can sign out toys for their children for a couple of weeks at a time, then return them for others to use.
Last month a slate of 20 international and Canadian street artists descended on Montreal's Boulevard Saint-Laurent for the inaugural edition of the MU...
It's a strange dichotomy I live these days, the two week eye-of-the-storm frenzy of the Just For Laughs Festival. And although the experience is indeed unique, I suspect it is a wide-reaching metaphor for those not as (plant tongue firmly in cheek now) "fortunate" to make their living in the business of show.
Directed by Québec's then-22-year-old Dolan (now 24), the sweeping romantic epic looks at the decade-long love affair between a trans woman and her female-identified, ever-passionate partner.
Civilized would be an understatement when it comes to Montreal, a city where you're not allowed to build a building higher than Mont Royal Park and where, during the annual Jazz Festival, two thirds of the (over 100) jazz, rock, blues, reggae, soul, and other bands play for free. Here are six other great things to do in Montreal in the summer.
I believe the time has come for the National Assembly of Quebec to legislate a limit on a mayor's tenure in the province's cities. As in many other jurisdictions, two terms are more than sufficient, whereas clinging to power for extended periods of time leads to cronyism and conspiracy as has been well demonstrated by the Montreal and Laval experience!
As a proud Canadian fortunate enough to make my living as a stand-up comedian (primarily in Canada) for the past 16 years I'm usually faced with the same question from everyone I meet: "How do you make a LIVING?" I think what they're really asking is, "how are you still in Canada?" given the state of the stand-up comedy "industry."
The MURAL Festival in Montreal took over Boulevard Saint-Laurent this past weekend. More than 25 local, national and international street artists work...
Gripping the suspended bar, he vaults off the platform and flies into the air, pumping higher with each sweep.
Hot jazz, cool comedy, fine dining and fabulous European café culture. The world's second-largest French-speaking city after Paris promises all that and more during the sultry season.
The Sketchbook Project is a collection of more than 27,000 sketchbooks from 135 countries. The crowd-funded project, dubbed a traveling library of artists' sketchbooks, started in 2010 and invites people -- artistic or not -- to tell their stories by filling and donating sketchbooks.
I spent the weekend speaking at a conference gathering of Quebec's Young Chamber of Commerce Groups. People actually talked about -- of all things -- a business card! While there were other cards on the table, they were basically ignored. The utter impracticality of the Jack card made it a conversation piece, and cut through the clutter.
Used as an adjective to describe a company's stature, the word "Leader" has degenerated into an ineffective cliché, one that is not only a weak, second-rate aspiration, but a hard-to-measure milestone that shines as bright as a plastic neon glowstick...and lasts about as long as one, too.
