What is Quebec City known for?


major musical

occurrences in this region, at least prior to 2001. Tornades Pelchat was born in Deep River, Ontario; he has spent several years of his life in both Quebec City and Montreal, eventually moving to Toronto, where he resides currently. From early on, Pelchat has had a major musical inclination. It was his family however, that sparked his love for music. His mother was a music teacher. His older sister is an opera singer and vocal teacher. (Ben followed suit, eventually becoming an accomplished guitar teacher himself.) The first white explorer to visit Michigan was the Frenchman (France) Étienne Brûlé in 1620, who began his expedition from Quebec City on the orders of Samuel de Champlain and traveled as far as the Upper Peninsula (Upper Peninsula of Michigan). Afterward, the area became part of Louisiana, one of the large colonial provinces of New France. The first permanent European settlement in Michigan was founded in 1668 at Sault Ste. Marie (Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan) by Jacques Marquette, a French missionary. Three years later, Ballard began a three-year stretch of consecutive appearances at the World Championships (World Ice Hockey Championships). He recorded an international career-high three assists at the 2007 tournament (2007 IIHF World Championship) in Russia, as the United States were eliminated in a 5–4 shootout loss to Finland (Finland national men's ice hockey team) in the quarterfinal.

He was born in Quebec City, Quebec, to a carter, John Kelly, and Marguerite Migneron. If Joseph-Octave Plessis had not encountered him on the street and sent him to primary school, Kelly might have lived an unremarkable life. As it happened, Kelly, after that schooling, and reaching the age of 14, was sent to the Petit Séminaire de Québec (Université Laval), where his "very great application in all things"

Military Festival of Music in Quebec City). In addition there have been numerous trips to the United States to participate in events such as the historic Fort Ticonderoga Tattoo and The Rochester International Marine Tattoo in New York State, the TRADOC Military Tattoo in Fort Monroe, Virginia, and the Stone Mountain Highland Games Military Tattoo in Atlanta, Georgia. Although several public opinion polls predicted that the 2006 election (Canadian federal election, 2006) would result in either a strong Conservative minority or a slight majority, the Liberals (Liberal Party of Canada) enjoyed a last-minute surge but were unable to overtake the Conservatives (Conservative Party of Canada). However, the surge did result in the smallest minority government in Canadian history, with the smallest percentage of government seats ever and the largest number of seats short of a majority. All parties held the balance of power, the Liberal party with 102 seats, the Bloc Québécois with 51 seats, and the NDP with 29 seats. André Arthur, a popular radio host from Quebec City, was the only independent (Independent (politics)) elected. As Liberal Peter Milliken was reelected as Speaker (Speaker (politics)), the Conservatives now effectively held a minority only 29 seats short of a majority as the Speaker traditionally votes only to break a tie and always in favour of the status quo. Thus, the Conservatives held a majority together with any one of the opposition parties, assuming no defections. This status was changed midway through the 39th parliament, when maverick MP Garth Turner was ousted from the Conservative caucus for allegedly violating "caucus confidentiality". Movie In 2004, producers from Quantum Entertainment, a Los Angeles-based production company, announced the release of the movie ''Karla (Karla (film))'' (with the working title ''Deadly''), Homolka movie to debut at Montreal film fest CBC News - July 25, 2005 (accessed November 21, 2010) starring Laura Prepon as Homolka and Misha Collins as Bernardo. Since the announcement of the movie, Tim Danson – the attorney for the families of French and Mahaffy – was given a private screening of the film, and following this, announced that the families had no objection to the film being released. Ontario Premier Dalton McGuinty has called for a boycott on the film. The film was released in Canada by Christal Films in the major markets of Calgary, Vancouver, Winnipeg, Ottawa, Toronto, Montreal, Quebec City and Halifax (Halifax Urban Area). Legal Status TÉLUQ became a component of the University of Québec in Montréal (UQAM) on October 19, 2005. It now has no board of directors, headquarters or registrar. However management offices are located in Quebec City. According to rule 19 Rule 19 - Règlement sur le développement et le fonctionnement de la Télé-université à l'UQAM (French) of UQAM, similar to a TÉLUQ rule in force before its merger with UQAM, these offices must always be in Quebec City. With approximately 60 000 students, the TÉLUQ-UQAM establishment is the biggest francophone university. Rencontre avec le recteur Roch Denis - Un nouveau rendez-vous pour la science (French) On March 1, 1968, wind blew part of the covering off the Spectrum's roof during a performance of the Ice Capades, forcing the building to close for a month while Mayor Tate fought with Philadelphia DA Arlen Specter over responsibility for the construction of the roof, and the damage was repaired.

The city had a hockey team, the Quebec Nordiques, which played in the World Hockey Association (WHA) from 1972 to 1979 and then in the National Hockey League (NHL) from 1979 to 1995, maintaining a strong rivalry with the Montreal Canadiens.

The Quebec Remparts are a major junior team in the QMJHL and play in the Colisée Pepsi. A professional basketball team, the Quebec Kebs played in National Basketball League of Canada in 2011 but folded prior to the start of the 2012 season.

'''Quebec''' ( to the southwest.

The narrowing of the Saint Lawrence River proximate to the city's promontory, Cap-Diamant (Cape Diamond), and Lévis (Lévis, Quebec), on the opposite bank, provided the name given to the city, ''Kébec'', an Algonquin (Algonquin language) word meaning "where the river narrows". Founded in 1608 by Samuel de Champlain, Quebec City is one of the oldest cities (List of North American cities by year of foundation) in North America. The ramparts (Ramparts of Quebec City) surrounding Old Quebec (''Vieux-Québec'') are the only fortified city walls remaining in the Americas north of Mexico, and were declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization) in 1985 as the 'Historic District of Old Québec'. "Historic District of Old Québec". World Heritage (World Heritage Site); UNESCO. Retrieved January 12, 2009.

According to the federal (Government of Canada) and provincial government (Politics of Quebec#Government of Quebec)s, ''Québec'' is the city's official name in both French (Quebec French) and English (Canadian English), although ''Quebec City'' (or its French equivalent, ''Ville de Québec'') is commonly used, particularly to distinguish the city from the province. The city's famous landmarks include the Château Frontenac, a hotel which dominates the skyline, and La Citadelle, an intact fortress that forms the centre-piece of the ramparts surrounding the old city. The National Assembly of Quebec (provincial legislature), the Musée national des beaux-arts du Québec (''National Museum of Fine Arts of Quebec''), and the Musée de la civilisation (''Museum of Civilization'') are found within or near Vieux-Québec.
