This year the BQW had the privilege to “adopt” Mme Emily Greif’s 👩🏻‍🏫 5th grade French ⚜️ class at @SWSatgoding @dcpublicschools, through the @EmbassyAdoption Program.

Aujourd’hui à @AmbCanEUA, les étudiants nous présentent ce qu’ils ont appris sur le #Québec.

#PublicDiplomacy
The 15 students started their Capstone Presentation by singing pour tout le monde ce qui reste la plus belle chanson québécoise, « Gens du pays » #Québec’s national hymn, written by famed poet Gilles Vigneault. ⚜️
Ensuite un hommage, en français, au célèbre poète montréalais Léonard Cohen.

And then they paid tribute to #Montréal poet Leonard Cohen, with the French version of his famous song “Hallelujah”

1. En cette période de commémoration, je voudrais parler de Rose, une grande dame pour laquelle je veux tenir nos mémoires en éveil. Sa vie a basculé entre le 22/04 et le 17/06/1994. Chaque jour jusqu'au 17/06, je vais vous parler de celle qu'elle fut #laVieDeRose #Rwanda #RwOT🇷🇼
2. Comme toute chronique, l’itinéraire de vie que je vais vous raconter est divisé en plusieurs périodes. L'histoire de Rose suit le calendrier de l'Histoire de son pays natal, le Rwanda : avant 1959, entre 1959 et 1994, entre avril et juillet 1994 et après 1994. #laVieDeRose
3. Elle s’appelait donc Rose, et elle était aussi belle que la reine des fleurs. Comme ne tarderait pas à le démontrer son parcours accidenté de jeune fille, de femme, de mère puis de veuve, Rose appartenait à la version la plus résistante de l’arbuste dont elle porte le nom.

'Based on his performance since the scandal broke in early February, even setting aside the merits of the SNC-Lavalin issue, @justintrudeau deserves to lose in the fall. cbc.ca/news/opinion/c…#cdnpoli
Andrew Scheer @AndrewScheer
This is crazy. The Office of the Ethics Commissioner is supposed to investigate conflicts of interest, not take part in them. This calls into question the entire office and the legitimacy of its investigations.

Trudeau, in my opinion, may be the biggest liar on planet earth today. He defended terrorist Omar Khadr more than his own lawyer did. Now, he’s saying that he knew nothing👇

The illegal federal political contributions from #SNCLavelin were to both federal parties back in 2004-11

All the funds have been repaid to the federal treasury by the respective national parties, both of whom disavow any knowledge of the scheme

Born & raised in #Fanar #Lebanon, a tiny country in the middle east with a lot to offer. I always had a positive outlook on life maybe because of the culture or values🤷‍♀️.
If you don't know #Lebanon or a #lebanese then you should start mingling 🤣
@IWS_Network #VoicesIWS
I grew up surrounded by a loving, joking & tough type of family that always support each other even amidst fighting. You can imaging being 4 kids in different age groups can cause a lot of fights growing up 😂 #siblingsfight #family #VoicesIWS
@IWS_Network
I have my issues🤷‍♀️! I always wanted to prove myself & make my family proud(2nd child). A pressure that was just in my head; they were always proud of us. I wanted to grow up to be a doctor or an army officer like my dad. Let's just say I changed my mind! #VoicesIWS @IWS_Network

Panelists of the #montreal #AI #ecoystem @froginthevalley @marktmaclean @MILAMontreal @rllabmcgill @NarjesBoufaden @PhilBeaudoin of @SymposiumAi, we need to talk. I’m bringing other AI researchers (from Montreal or not) into the discussion because I feel it’s very important. 1/15
It relates to more than just Montreal, but the general AI ecosystem: @atg_abhishek, @goodfellow_ian, @fchollet, @hardmaru, @element_ai, @Montreal_IA, @johnolafenwa, @MTLINTL, @math_rachel, @mtlaiethics, @AndrewYNg. 2/15
I didn't get the chance to make a comment yesterday as time was over. There was a lot of talk about how great the ecosystem is great except for some minor communications flaws, but what nobody even mentioned is how incredibly closed this ecosystem is to outsiders. 3/15

@ShawnMcGuirk @CFAMMcan @mcgillu @santecannabis @trinafraser There is still reluctance in prescribing #MedicalCannabis, and there is lack of point of sale (still will have to be by mail), excise tax and HST/GST upcoming, lack of drug plan coverage.
