IDEAS New Year's Day Levee


Whenever January 1st happens to fall on a weekday, we convene what we call our "almost-annual levee." It commemorates a custom from New France, where the colonial governor opened the doors of his mansion every New Year's Day, to share some holiday cheer with the general population, and listen to their current concerns and their hopes for the future. All the provinces and many Canadian cities now hold levees. Here at IDEAS, we throw open the studio doors, and talk to some of the people who are preparing shows that you'll be hearing over the next few days and weeks. Happy 2019!
