Yes indeed. You beat me to it (trying to get work done and not look out the window and the effing (trace of) snow...).

Ah, que les temps s'abrègent!

Viennent les vents et les neiges!

Vienne l'hiver en manteau de froid,

Vienne l'envers des étés du roi!

Même le roi n'aura point oreille,

À maison vieille, où déjà ta voix.

The poetry and music is so much more beautiful than the reality. Pity.

I hear Montréal just awarded a contract for snow removal for May - September 2016.

Hey, it coudl snow in May! 

So the commission was all sound and fury, signifying nothing much.

Quote:
The Quebec Liberal party might have to repay more than a half-million dollars as reimbursement for numerous illegal donations received between 2006 and 2011. For the same period, the Parti Quebecois (PQ) may also have to repay illegal donations, although in their case, the sum will be up to $250,000.

If only we had the same thing happening in BC. Christy is possibly the most corrupt Premier BC has ever seen and historically that we've had some real crooks.
