Quebec preparing for holiday celebrations

With the holiday season fast approaching Quebec announced it will plan for family gatherings.

Not large gatherings according to Legault, but small ones with close family.

To prepare kids to go back to school, Quebec is considering extending the school holidays to give families time to quarantine.

Quebec seeks closer relationship with Indigenous communities

In other news, Quebec is working on strengthening relationships with Indigenous communities.

This will include a new political round table with the Assembly of First Nations Quebec and Labrador (AFNQL).

The initiative follows some of the recommendations made in a scathing report released last year in September, that called on the government to apologize to First Nation Communities for systemic racism.

McGill sports team changes name to Redbirds

Let’s go McGill Redbirds!

That's the new cheer for the men’s varsity athletics team at McGill. They’ve changed the team name to Redbird from “Redman”

It was a student-led campaign that pushed for the change, because the name Redman is seen as racist slur against Indigenous communities.
