The existence of Ogilvy in Montreal is seriously threatened!
After a temporary acquisition by the Bombardier family in 2010, that it is the famous family of Galen Weston who acquired the building Ogilvy. The rumor is now that the group would move its Holt Renfrew from Sherbrooke Street to occupy the space of St. Catherine.
If this happens, it will mark the end of Ogilvy in Montreal …
Montreal Cardinal Jean Claude Turcotte is officially retired but since his replacement was not appointed, he continues to act as leader.
Bernard Bujold (LeStudio1.com) has known the Cardinal:
“I’m not a practicing Catholic, but I liked the Cardinal Turcotte who is not an intellectual, nor a religious … He is a former athlete who has practiced boxing and loves detective novels. I have offered once to him the Tom Wolfe – A Man in Full.
We are far from the serious reading of Benedict XVI!
Turcotte loves life and he was good friend of journalist Michel Vastel (1940-2008 )…”
Despite his resignation, Cardinal Jean Claude Turcotte will preside at the 2011 Midnight Mass broadcast on Radio-Canada and Eurovision. The celebration will come from Repentigny (Lanaudière) in one of the oldest churches built in Quebec in 1725.
The soloist will be Raphaelle Paquette (opera singer).
