This Saturday, the 27th, in Longueuil, Montréal, and Québec City there are Premiers pas dans la nature events for kids aged 5 – 12. These are leave-no-trace sessions that teach kids how to enjoy getting outside without roughing up Mother Nature.

There are a stack of events and sessions at all of our Quebec stores, from a presentation on an expedition to K2 and Nanga Parabat, to special club-nights in Longueuil, Montréal, and Québec, to courses on backcountry skiing and alpine climbing.

He used my blackberry to make a voice recording of me orgasming, then set it as my ringtone while I was sleeping. I discovered this during a staff meeting this morning.

Fashion retailer Jacob stops photo retouching

The company says it has always felt strongly about women’s issues and respecting its customers and decided it was time to “take a stand on retouching.”

‘We hope to reverse the trend in digital photo manipulation that has become excessive in our industry.’—Cristelle Basmaji, Jacob’s communications director
“As a socially responsible company, Jacob has always made an effort to promote a healthy image of the female body,” spokesperson and communications director Cristelle Basmaji said in a news release.

“By adopting an official policy and broadcasting it publicly, we hope to reverse the trend in digital photo manipulation that has become excessive in our industry.”


Employing tricks like needless pagination, auto-refreshing (see Salon.com), misleading headlines, and the like is cheating. You didn’t earn those pageviews, you tricked people into giving them to you. And then you look at shit like popups, popunders, double underlined links, Snap previews, Tynt scripts, and so on, and it’s pretty clear how hostile it all is. It’s nothing but money-grabbing. If you’ve got it set up so bad that your readers are employing things like ad blockers and Safari’s Reader, you fucked up. You did something wrong. You overestimated how much your readers are willing to tolerate.

I welcomed the opportunity to reassure all those concerned with this issue that we have no intention of Section 44 or Section 58A being used to stop ordinary people taking photos or to curtail legitimate journalistic activity.

Guidance has been provided to all police forces advising that these powers and offences should not be used to stop innocent member of the public, tourists or responsible journalists from taking photographs.

Sadly I feel that these words are more “SPIN” from the Nanny State than the bonded word of a leader who actually cares about the citizens.
