Several hundred kids of every color lined up outside the HMV record store at lunchtime for a chance to meet filmmaker Spike Lee.He came to town to sign DVD copies of his most recent movie, a Second World War epic Miracle at St. Anna. He was also scheduled to talk to students at Concordia University later in the afternoon, in the context of Black History Month.

For the first time in his young presidency, Barack Obama has touched down on foreign soil. Three McGill University students were among the media waiting for the plane to land in Ottawa. Beavertails vendors hawked "Obamatails," special versions of the popular treat with a whip cream "O" topped with maple syrup and chocolate sauce.

More drama in the Montreal Canadiens season yesterday when Alex Kovalev who is universally regarded as the Canadiens most talented player; was told by GM Bob Gainey to take a much needed break. He will sit-out the next 2 game road trip to focus on resting and getting his head straight. Yet GM Gainey offered a damning appraisal of the superstar's recent play when he said, in French: "The team has no need of [Kovalev's] services the way he's currently playing. He's tired and he isn't playing with any emotion."

Liberal Leader Michael Ignatieff outlined on Tuesday how he plans to rebuild support for his party in Quebec, a province that has largely turned away from the federal Liberals in recent years. Let's hope he does not follow the conservatives pledge to promise it all, and do nothing which caused many sour opinions of that party.

Hi there! Quick question that's entirely off topic. Do you know how to make your site
mobile friendly? My weblog looks weird when viewing
from my apple iphone. I'm trying to find a theme or plugin that might be able to correct this problem.
If you have any suggestions, please share. Many thanks!

Today, while I was at work, my cousin stole my iphone and
tested to see if it can survive a 25 foot drop, just so she
can be a youtube sensation. My iPad is now broken and she has 83
views. I know this is entirely off topic but I had to share it with someone!
