These stories were shared with Julia Page as Bonhomme Carnaval stopped by for an evening visit at St. Brigid's. Hear his take on love.

Last but not least, you can listen back to last year's visit, when Julia Caron stopped by.

Bonhomme on love and friendship

Carnaval is still going strong here in Quebec City, and Valentine's day is right around the corner. In the spirit of love and friendship, Bonhomme Carnaval paid a visit to residents of St-Brigid's Home for Senior Citizens in Sillery last night. 

Our Julia Page was there to gather stories of love and friendship from residents, and couldn't resist asking Bonhomme about what warms his icy heart.

Condo development in Sillery given the go-ahead

In December, Quebec's Culture minister Maka Kotto set out his plan for those vast domains in Quebec City known as the Sillery heritage lands.They're highly-coveted because they're mostly undeveloped and offer a spectacular view over the St. Lawrence River.

Over the long-term, the minister wants the power to designate and protect these heritage properties through legislation. But in the meantime, he gave the green light to one condo development on what's called the Domaine Woodfield.

That has citizens' organizations up-in-arms, including la Coalition pour l'arrondissement historique de Sillery. Charles-Robert Dionne is the group's vice-president, and joins us with more.
