Easter water: the Quebec tradition

notre dame du cap.jpg 
Saint-Venant-de-Paquette is a tiny village of 111 people, at last count, in the Eastern Townships, east of Coaticook.  The village has only two part-time employees: the mayor, and a secretary.  The nearest fire department is in Vermont.  There is snow removal and garbage removal, but no internet. 

The church of Saint-Venant-de-Paquette is, for most of the year, a museum run by village's historical society.  But three times a year, including Easter, the parishioners from the village reclaim the church to hold services there. This weekend, the population of the village of Saint-Venant-de-Paquette will nearly TRIPLE for a special Easter service that involves a trip by torchlight, down to the river.
 
Parishioner Marc-André Inkell will be there and he spoke with Sonali Karnick about this tradition that starts well before sunrise on Easter morning.

The search for Easter water is something that goes on across Quebec.  For many, it's a family affair, involving a walk through the forest, or across fields, to get to the water's source.
Father Yoland Ouellet is the rector of Notre-Dame-du-Cap in Trois-Rivières.  He spoke with Sonali Karnick about how his own parish practises this tradition.

Making your own Easter treats

cream egg opened.JPGOne of the yummiest treats of the season, for those who love Easter candy, is cream eggs.
You know, like the kind you can find in stores "just until Easter, then they'll be gone?"
Big candy companies sell a lot of them at this time of year. In fact, Creme Eggs are the best-selling candy in the United Kingdom between New Year's Day and Easter and of course you can find them in many local chocolate shops too.

They seem a bit tricky to make, filled with a white and yellow cream centre, like the white and yolk of an egg, inside a chocolate shell shaped like and egg.
But you can find plenty of recipes online that claim to show you how easy it is to make Easter cream eggs yourself.
We called up a Montreal foodophile and asked him to put those recipes to the test.
Ryk Edelstein brought the fruits - the eggs? - of his labour to the studio.

He did have some help from someone who's an expert in working with sugar, chef Christian Faure, who recently competed in the "Sugar Dome" competition on the Food Network.

Knowlton House

knowltonhouse.JPGYou'd hardly know it, walking by but an aluminium sided house in Knowlton is actually, underneath, historically important. It belonged to P.H. Knowlton, for whom the town is named. He built the house in 1815. 

The Knowlton Golf Club owns the house now, and they're seeking permission to demolish the building.  David Kinninmonth is an architect who lives in Knowlton and he's on the "Village Development" committee of the Town of Brome Lake. He spoke with Sonali Karnick about the history of the house and others that could be just like it in Quebec.

Saleema Nawaz: "Bone and Bread"

Bone and Bread.jpg
Before Saleema Nawaz's first book was even published there were high hopes. It's called "Bone and Bread" and it centres on two sisters, Beena and Sadhana, who grow up above a bagel shop in Mile End. After the death of Sadhana, who dies alone her Montreal apartment, Beena is left to discover a different person than she knew as her sister. 
"Bread and Bone" is, it would be fair to say, "much anticipated." Saleema Nawaz has already won acclaim for her writing. One of her short stories won the Journey Prize.  "Bone and Bread" is already getting high praise from critics.
Saleema Nawaz spoke with Sonali Karnick in studio.

Kids Coding: Teaching children the language of computers

kids coding.JPG
Many kids today have a multitude of options for keeping themselves entertained. Wiis, iPads, portable DVD players.

 Some parents steer their kids away from technology in favour of more "wholesome" activities like drawing, painting, reading books.

Sonali Karnick spoke with two people who have their own ideas about what parents should be encouraging their kids to do in their leisure time and it's even more high-tech than anything you may have considered. 
KateArthur and Gersande La Flèche of Kids Coding Canada think children should learn to code or write their own programs for computers. It's something children don't learn in school and they want to change that.

The specialty middle-man for farmers

lambs in pasture.jpg
Small farmers across Quebec are finding new ways of marketing their products in the big city.
Specialty items like aphid honey, lychee tomatoes, and ultra-high grade maple syrup are showing up in restaurants in Los Angeles, New York, and Boston.


In some cases, it's not just a new way of doing business for farmers. It's also a new way of growing the food, or making the maple syrup, as the case may be, tailored for a "niche" market. Alex Cruz is one of the founder of Sociéte Orignal, a company that finds and markets these products for farmers just like Richard Semmelhack.

Both of them spoke with Sonali Karnick about how they've made this relationship work.

Sugaring off at La Maison Amérindienne with Micheline Lachance

Mont-Saint-Hilaire Sugar master.JPGCraving maple syrup and an adventure, Sonali Karnick hit the road with Micheline Lachance of Tourism Quebec. They went to La Maison Amérindienne in Mont-St-Hilaire. 

It's a non-profit museum and sugar shack, dedicated to preserving First Nations culture and art as well as, in season, making their own maple syrup.

The site of La Maison Amériendienne was an actual maple farm for more than one hundred years. It was put up for sale but nobody claimed the land, until artist André Michel created a foundation to take charge of the land. It now operates year-round with a museum and summer camp.

Once there, they met up with guide Ariane Cardinal for a special tour of the sugar shack.

Mike Savatovsky is the creator and co-facilitator of the event. He is also a member of the ROI Community, an international network of more than 800 activists in 50 countries who are redefining Jewish engagement for a new generation.

Creamy, dark Guinness beer for St Patrick's Day

guinness.jpg
It's not green outside yet, but everything will be green  today in honour of St Patrick's Day. The annual parades in Montreal and Richmond will begin later this afternoon. And the beer will be flowing later too.
 
Green beer notwithstanding, this holiday's most iconic beer is Guinness. A creamy, dark pint of Guinness is famous for those bubbles that sink and the floating widgets in their cans. 

So, in celebration of St Paddy's, Sonali Karnick speaks with professional beer taster and judge Mirella Amato about the science behind those high-end suds.

Rio Tinto Alcan Planetarium aims for the stars

Planetarium exterior.jpgThe largest natural sciences museum complex in Canada is in Montreal. And it just got bigger.

The Montreal Space for Life includes the Botanical Garden, Insectarium, Biodome and now a striking new Planetarium.

The Rio Tinto Alcan Planetarium is located right next to the Biodome in the east end of the city, dominated by two large silver silos pointing like telescopes at the sky. Besides this distinctive, environmentally friendly architecture, the planetarium takes a unique approach to space, linking not only earth and sky, but also science, art and poetry.

Planetarium interior 2.jpgThe $48-million dollar planetarium opens on April 6th, but there's an open house for the public today.

We invited in the executive director of the Montreal Space for Life, Charles-Matthieu Brunelle, to tell us more.

Spirit Lake Internment Camp in Abitibi

Spirit Lake artifacts.jpg
During a recent trip to the Abitibi, the CBC's Marika Wheeler dropped by a museum that marks a shadowy part of Canada's past.
 
From 1914 to1920,  thousands of immigrants of Austro-Hungarian descent were labelled 'enemy aliens' under the War Measures Act and were forced into work camps across the country.

There were 24 camps in all, and three of them were in Quebec. One camp near Amos in the Abitibi was called Spirit Lake.  For a long time, all that marked the camp's existence was a cross--- a memorial. But after years of hard work, a museum is now there to pay tribute to that part of Quebec history. 

Marika Wheeler joined Sona from our Quebec City studio.

Young Catholics on the new Pope

pope-conclave1132.jpgThe papal conclave is set for Tuesday, when cardinals will meet in Vatican City to elect a successor to Pope Benedict XVI. He is the only pope in 600 years to have retired, and whoever is chosen next could well set the tone for the Catholic church for many years to come.

Sonali Karnick spoke with two people about what the younger generation of Catholics is hoping for. Anna Tafuto is the activities coordinator at the Don Bosco Youth Leadership Centre in east-end Montreal. She attends Mary Help of Christians church in Rivière-des-Prairies. Lukas Kusiak is from Dollard-des-Ormeaux. He's helping organize the next World Youth Day, for Catholic young people, to be held in Rio de Janeiro this summer. He is 20 years old, and a member of Saint Luke's parish in DDO.

Living English: Allophones

living-english-852.jpgIn CBC's Living English series, we've been looking at what it means to be an English-speaker in Quebec. We commissioned a poll to ask anglophones in the province about their experience but a sizeable group of Quebecers who use English every day were NOT captured in the poll.
Allophones,  people's whose first language is neither French nor English. Sonali Karnick spoke with two people who feel more comfortable in English than in French but who are not technically part of the anglophone community.
Shaheen Junaid Ashraf grew up in what is now Bangaldesh and came to Quebec in 1976. Pat Antoniwicz is a filmmaker originally from Poland.  They spoke with Sonali Karnick about where they see themselves fitting in and how they feel about the language issue in Quebec.

Oklahoma! at Hudson Village Theatre

Oklahoma! by Rodgers and Hammerstein has been a long-time favourite on Broadway - where it started out - and in professional and amateur theatres.

But if you missed all of those productions, it's a story that takes place in Oklahoma territory in 1906. A cowboy named Curly asks a farm girl named Laurie to a box-social dance. But so does a menacing hired hand named Judd and trouble ensues. There's also the subplot - a love triangle between a flirt named Ado Annie who can't say no, a cowboy and a travelling salesman. And there's the wonderful musical score.

Hudson Village Theatre is taking on Oklahoma! from March 6th to the 23rd.

oklahoma.jpgThis morning, Sonali Karnick speaks with the cowboy named Curly, played by Jordan Marchand, and with co-director Karen Cromar who's on the line from Hudson.
