“Henry” is an emotionally touching short film by Quebec actor Yan England, which is a 2013 Oscar Nominee for Best Live-Action Short Film. The film is about an 84-year-old concert pianist suffering from Alzheimer’s, whose life is thrown into turmoil when his wife mysteriously disappears. The aging musician is tossed between feelings of hope and suffering as he searches in vain for his lost love, while reminiscing about their past together.
“Henry,” which England financed out of his own pocket, is an ambitious attempt to portray the world of worsening dementia from the inside. Gérard Poirier plays the pianist, Henry, and Louise Laprade portrays his wife, Maria. The 29-year-old England says the film was inspired by the experiences of his own grandfather, who developed Alzheimer’s disease and died three years ago at age 96.
This piece includes color photographs and acclaimed the short film.

As eight of the fourteen CEGEP preparatory schools have voted to return to class, and thereby end the strike which began in February, Quebec is beginning to witness the fading away of the first phase of the student movement, mobilized by the planned tuition increases, and which expanded into a broader social movement known as the ‘Maple Spring.’ As some students have returned to class, they were met with a heavy police presence, no doubt to ensure ‘order’ during such a “dangerous” situation in which students enter school property. After all, Bill 78, which was passed by Jean Charest’s government back in May (now known as Law 12), made student protests on (or within 50 metres of school property) an illegal act.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge continued their tour in the French Canadian providence of Québec over the weekend, with a mixed reception.
Many fans were there to greet William & Kate, they are outnumbered protesters, many shouted louder than fans,one even shouted "Vive le Quebec libre!" during their visit in a hospital in Montréal. Don't forget Québec residents want their providence to become an independent country (Scotland, do take note), but the royal couple had a peaceful time which included a tribute to war veterans. The couple's tour in Canada continues throughout the week.

A Montreal doctor has been suspended and fined $3,000 for filming female patients while they were naked, with a hidden camera.
Quebec's College of Physicians suspended Dr. Barry Rabinovitch for four months, effective Feb. 14.
The professional order says Rabinovitch, a pulmonologist, committed a serious violation which was compounded by the fact that he was in a position of authority.
According to the disciplinary report released by the college's disciplinary committee, Rabinovitch filmed more than a dozen female patients in various stages of undress, over the span of one year.
The reported incidents occurred in 2009 at the Montreal Chest Institute and at the Queen Elizabeth Health Centre.
Rabinovitch admitted to the college that the illicit videos were for his personal gratification.
The 56-year-old is a married father of two children and a lung specialist. He is also an associate professor with McGill University's medical faculty.
The videos were seized by police after an administrator at the Chest Institute filed a complaint with the College of Physicians.
Rabinovitch immediately stopped teaching and seeing patients after that. He also underwent a psychiatric evaluation.
MUHC issues statement
In a statement released Tuesday, MUHC director of professional services, Dr. Ewa Sidorowicz said "every possible measure has been put in place to ensure that our patients are protected."
"Appropriate steps were taken immediately to protect patients and staff as soon as the incident of inappropriate behaviour was reported."
The Montreal Chest Institute is one of several hospitals in the McGill University Health Centre network.
