After months of delays followed by preliminary work, the Village of Grenville is finally able to begin major rehabilitation work on the historic Grenville Canal. Work began on Monday August 15.

Stabilization and reconstruction of the canal walls is underway along the northern part of the canal near the jetty and near the site of the old lock next to Desforges Park.

The project is made possible by $2.5 million each from the Quebec and federal governments, originally announced in January 2021.

“This was an important issue for me,” said Argenteuil-La Petite-Nation MNA Stéphane Lauzon at a press conference held in Grenville on August 19.

Lauzon said securing the funding took a long time. He described it as a start towards the preservation of the canal, as the ongoing work is currently the first of two phases.

Argenteuil Member of the National Assembly (MNA) of Quebec Agnes Grondin spoke about the heritage significance of the canal and how its preservation could benefit the local economy.

Grondin also mentioned the importance of the preservation of the canal for the former mayor of Grenville, Luc Grondin, who died in November 2018. Mayor Grondin was a cousin of MP Grondin.

“The municipality is very grateful to the governments of Canada and Quebecnoted Grenville Mayor Pierre Thauvette.

The contractor carrying out the canal work is PRONEX of Lachute, which has significant experience in excavation in the marine environment.

The Grenville Canal was built between 1819 and 1834 by the British army as a transportation route along the Ottawa River to connect Montreal to the Rideau Canal in Ottawa. The canal bypasses the Long Sault rapids, which were flooded following the construction of the Carillon hydroelectric plant in the 1960s.

Once the repairs to the Grenville Canal have been completed, it can be reopened to pleasure boating. Since 2008, the subsistence along the lock walls has made the upper part of the canal unsafe for shipping traffic and the section has been closed to boats. The project will also modernize infrastructure along Canal Nord Street.

Work on the canal walls was carried out along Canal Street South in 2021. The village also relocated the old tourist information building in 2020 from the corner of Maple Street and Principale Street next to the wharf and the boat ramp. It will eventually reopen as a new tourist information and reception center.

The completion of the canal works is intended to enhance the historic canal as a centerpiece of the village and to make it a major recreational tourist attraction focused on boating, cycling and historical interpretation.

The boat ramp on Canal Nord Street has been closed since August 15 and will remain closed for the remainder of the 2022 boating season. Access to Canal Nord Street will be very limited and street residents are kept informed by the village of the progress of the project.

According to the general manager of the village Alain Leveillethe rehabilitation of the Grenville Canal will be completed by fall 2023.

WWE Friday Night SmackDown Live Score (August 19, 2022): Center Bell – Montreal, Canada

Welcome to Montreal, Quebec, Canada and SmackDown Episode #1200!

April 29, 1999 – the very first SmackDown taped in New Haven, Connecticut – is referenced as Michael Cole and Pat McAfee hype the 1200th episode of SmackDown Tonight! We are reminded of a bit of history and McAfee reminds Cole that he was only 19 when SmackDown debuted. Ronda Rousey comes out and interrupts the festivities by jumping on the microphone!

Ronda wakes up the police

Ronda enters the ring to Cole & McAfee’s surprise. Rousey takes on an anti-hero type role, demanding that WWE officials come out, lift her suspension, and let her fight. She refuses to leave until she hears from them and tells them to hurry up, adding “chop-chop!” WWE official Adam Pearce and three security guards staff come out. Pearce respectfully asks Rousey to leave the ring peacefully as he cannot simply lift his suspension. The crowd boos Pearce and cheers Ronda, then sings for her. Rousey says last week she chose to lose peacefully but this week, “Pearce, don’t make me choose violence!” Security approaches the ring and Rousey prepares for a fight. Rousey drops the two with arm bars and takes down two more who enter the ring. She threatens an arm bar and breaking an official’s arm as Pearce begs her to stop. The guard begs her not to, and instead she violently assaults the guard! She approaches Pearce and two Canadian policemen – unfortunately, no, no gendarmes! – introduce themselves and talk to him. Antifa elements in the crowd chant “break their arms” and the cops arrest him, leading him to the back. Rousey insults the two cops and then chooses to criticize Adam Pearce who may or may not have alopecia like Jada Pinkett-Smith, and is kidnapped by the police before, presumably, Will Smith can show up. A vehicle arrives and the crowd goes wild as “The Tribal Chief”, roman reigns, arrived ! We’re going to take a break!

WWE Women’s Tag Team Championship Tournament Match 1: Toxic Attraction vs. Natalya & Sonya Deville

The winning duo will advance to face the team of Raquel Rodriguez & Aliyah; note that the originally scheduled Nikkita Lyons and Zoey Stark were substituted hours before tonight’s program due to an undisclosed injury and were replaced by Toxic Attraction’s Gigi Dolin and Jacy Jayne. For you non-NXT viewers, they are two-time NXT Women’s Tag Team Champions and, alongside NXT Women’s Champion Mandy Rose, form the dominating trio known as Toxic Attraction that ruled the women’s roster in NXT. throughout the year. Gigi Dolin is the redhead and was known as Priscilla Kelly in India; Jacy Jayne is best known for her run in NXT and her brief stint in Shine Wrestling. There are your random facts for the week. Continue. Bayley, Dakota Kai and Iyo Sky make their way back and we get the reunion we’ve all been waiting for – Bayley and Michael Cole! She taunts Cole by reminding him that she’s back on SmackDown, and on her way, for the first time since before her injury! We get a video introducing the public to Toxic Attraction and Cole & McAfee hyping the heck out of everyone tonight, it seems. We also get a recap of the tournament–Bliss and Asuka take on Kai and Sky in the semi-finals. and, as mentioned, tonight’s winning team takes on Rodriguez & Aliyah. Main roster veterans Deville and Natalya take the first lead on the two-time NXT Champions as the commentary babbles. Jacy & Gigi rally however, sending us a break as the NXT duo take their first lead of the match! When we return, Toxic Attraction transfers their lead over their opponents and Nattie gets the home country treatment as she begins her comeback streak, culminating in a sniper attempt that has the crowd on their feet! The “latest graduate of the Hart Dungeon” throws it but, ultimately, Toxic Attraction hangs on to steal the win and piss off the “hometown crowd”.
Your winners and your progress to the semi-finals, toxic attraction!

LANGUAGE experts say one of Ireland’s most famous landmarks is mispronounced.

Language-learning platform Preply has used Google search data to reveal a list of the most mispronounced places on the planet.

And the Cliffs of Moher in County Clare is where a lot of people struggle to find success.

The scenic landmark should be pronounced as Cliffs of Mo-er, with no accent on the ‘h’.

And Banner County’s famous tourist attraction isn’t the only place that many people have trouble pronouncing correctly – Montreal, Phuket and Dubai are confusing.

Amy Pritchett, Learning Success Manager at Preply, said: “There’s nothing more embarrassing than arriving at a new vacation destination and mispronouncing its name in front of a local, especially if you’re messing up the regional accent. .

“To avoid this awkward encounter, we’ve researched the most commonly mispronounced places, so you never have to worry about those tongue twisters again.

“When you learn to pronounce these place names correctly, I encourage you to speak like a native, or at least a savvy tourist.”

Here, Amy reveals the correct pronunciation of some of the most mispronounced places on the planet.

Most read in The Irish Sun

CLIFFS OF MOHERCo Clear

To correct: After

Incorrect: Mohair

Cliffs of Mower? Mohair cliffs? More cliffs? Cliffs of Moher is pronounced “plus”, you don’t say the “h”, much like “mower” without the loud “w” sound.

THAMES RIVER, England

To correct: TEMZ

Incorrect: THAYMZ

It’s natural to look at the name ‘Thames’ and assume that the ‘th’ is pronounced like in many other English words: thick, theatre, three.

However, when referring to the Thames in England, the “th” is articulated as a “t” and the “ames” turns into “emz”: “TEMZ”.

Edinburgh, Scotland

To correct: ed-in-bruh or ed-in-buh-ruh

Incorrect: ED-in-berg or ED-in-buh-row or EED-in-berg

If Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania is pronounced “PITTS-berg”, then Edinburgh, Scotland is pronounced “ED-in-berg”, right? Bad.

The two most common and accepted pronunciations in the Scottish capital are the short ‘ED-in-bruh’ and the longer ‘ED-in-bur-uh’.

Scots warn that they talk fast and tend to swallow unnecessary vowels, so be sure to start strong with “ED-in” and then end quickly and softly with “bruh” or “bur-uh”. Keep it up and you’ll be singing “Flower of Scotland” with your Scottish friends in no time!

CANNES, France

To correct: KAN or KAN-uh

Incorrect: CON or CONZ or CON-es

The first mistake is to state the “s” at the end of the word (which is rarely done in French), so start by completely removing the “es”.

Next, make sure you never pronounce the remaining word as “con” (eg, “He’s a crook”). Instead, Cannes should sound like “Kan.”

LOUVRE MUSEUM, Paris, France

To correct: LOO-vruh

Incorrect: LOOV or LOO-vray or LOO-vraa or LOO-ver

Some travelers opt for “LOO-vray” while others try “LOO-ver”. Many skip the ending completely and say “LOOV”.

However, the best way to approximate the French pronunciation in English is to say “LOO-vruh”. So now you are ready to discover the Mona Lisa.

VERSAILLES, France

To correct: go-Sigh

Incorrect: ver-SALES or ver-SAY-les

Just like the pronunciation of Cannes, French speakers attack the “es” in Versailles. But they don’t stop there: the double “L”s at the end aren’t pronounced either.

After that, there are only two syllables left in the word: “ver” is articulated like “vair”, and “sai” sounds like “sigh”.

This leaves you with “vair-SIGH”. On the other hand, if you ever find yourself in Versailles, Kentucky, stick with “ver-SALES.”

SEYCHELLES, East Africa

To correct: SAY-shellz

Incorrect: tell them

The name of this African archipelago may sound like a hard word to pronounce due to its unique spelling, but it’s surprisingly easy to say: “SAY-shellz.”

All it takes is to string together two common English words, and voila!

IBIZA, Spain

To correct: ee-BEE-tha

Incorrect: ih-BEE-za or eye-BEE-tha or ee-BEE-za

To pronounce this name like a Spaniard, use “ee-BEE-tha”. If you’re wondering why ‘za’ turns into ‘tha’, it’s because the Spanish dialect requires ‘Z’s to be pronounced as ‘th’, whereas Latin American Spanish speakers voice ‘Z’s. as “s” (i.e., ee-BEE-sa).

Phuket, Thailand

To correct: poo-KET

Incorrect: FUE-ket or fue-KET or FUH-ket

To some people’s dismay, the actual pronunciation of Phuket is “poo-KET”, starting with a hard “P” and emphasizing the second syllable.

Nevertheless, this name might still make mischievous school children and adults laugh.

DUBAI, UNITED ARAB EMIRATES

To correct: doo-BAY

Incorrect: doo-BYE

The classic Dubai Arabic version replaces the “bye” sound with “bay”: “doo-BAY”.

Again, about 85% of Dubai’s population comprises expats and immigrants, so the anglicized pronunciation of Dubai (“doo-BYE”) is the most common.

Meanwhile, holiday experts have revealed people’s most annoying habits abroad.

Unsurprisingly, hogging lounge chairs is one of the worst things you can do while on vacation, according to the study.

One week before the start of the school year, the CSQ fears that some CEGEPs will not be able to offer certain services and even certain courses due to a lack of staff.

The CSQ and its affiliated unions in the college network are asking Quebec to improve the working conditions of CEGEP staff in order to deal with a staff shortage that is beginning to affect establishments in the school network.

The leaders of the central labor body and its three federations representing teachers, professionals and support staff in the college sector met with the media in Montreal on Monday to express their concerns.

The attractiveness of the private and even public sector leads to a shortage of teachers, particularly in computer science, industrial electronics, nursing sciences and pharmacy.

In some colleges, several course loads are still not distributed to teachers because there are no teachers to take them on.

Additionally, union leaders point out that students emerging from the two-year pandemic with distance, hybrid or other alternative learning methods are ill-prepared to take on what they call “the student job” and require updates. upgrades which are an additional burden for Staff.

In addition, the lack of professionals, such as educational counselors or psychologists – already flagrant before the pandemic – has worsened.

It is not surprising to hear these concerns being raised as we approach the renewal of collective agreements in the education sector. The CSQ and its federations are asking the government to improve the working conditions and salaries of their members in order to create real attractiveness and retention of personnel.

Moderna announces the construction of its new mRNA vaccine facility in Laval, Quebec. will begin later this year, with production expected to begin by the end of 2024.

It will be the pharmaceutical giant’s first manufacturing plant outside the United States and will cost around $180 million to build.

Moderna says it has agreed to purchase land in the biotech park in suburban Montreal, to serve as the site for its biomanufacturing plant.

The Massachusetts-based company says the site is ideal because it houses a campus of a renowned Quebec research institute, the National Institute for Scientific Research (INRS).

Moderna announced in April that it would build a factory in the Montreal area that would produce about 30 million doses of the vaccine per year, with the ability to increase production to 100 million per year if needed.

The company also said it would employ between 200 and 300 people.

The facility is expected to produce vaccines not only against COVID-19, but also against various respiratory viruses, including influenza and respiratory syncytial virus, or RSV.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced Moderna would arrive in the Montreal area in April, as ministers Francois-Philippe Champagne, left, and Jean-Yves Duclos look on. (Graham Hughes/The Canadian Press)

The company says the facility is expected to be operational by the end of 2024, “subject to planning and regulatory approvals.”

Today, Montreal Mayor Valérie Plante chose to treat the news as a victory for the region rather than a disappointment for her city.

Plante had said in April that the facility would be in Montreal, and Quebec Economy Minister Pierre Fitzgibbon indicated in June that it would be built in the city’s Saint-Laurent borough.

“It’s excellent news to see businesses set up in the metropolitan area. The arrival of Moderna strengthens our position of choice in the life sciences sector, and confirms the attractiveness and dynamism of Greater Montreal,” Plante said in a press release Thursday.

It seems that proximity to INRS was the deciding factor for Moderna.

“This location offers tremendous synergies to Moderna due to its proximity to a renowned research institute, in addition to meeting the requirements of the project and its importance for all Canadians and Quebecers,” the company said in a press release.

“Moderna is proud to share the promise of mRNA science with Quebec to combat the world’s greatest public health threats.”

INRS and the mayor of Laval also celebrated the news on Thursday.

“There is no doubt that welcoming a partner of this stature will contribute to the influence of the Laval biotechnology park in Quebec and Canada”, indicates a press release from the INRS.

In April, it was announced that the agreement to open the facility came with a commitment from the federal government to prioritize purchases of vaccine inventory from Moderna during future outbreaks or disease outbreaks.

The former mayor of Kuujjuaq, Tunu Napartuk, wants to be the next provincial representative for the Quebec riding of Ungava.

The provincial Liberal Party announced him as its candidate for the October 3 election in the vast riding that includes all of Nunavik at a press conference in Montreal on Tuesday morning.

Napartuk is the third candidate to join the race for Ungava. Currently, he faces incumbent Denis Lamothe, who is part of the Coalition Avenir Québec, and the newcomer of Québec solidaire Maïtée Labrecque-Saganash.

Liberal Leader Dominique Anglade introduced Napartuk, who was accompanied by his wife, Lynn Lemire, to reporters.

“I kinda hope I’ll have the power of attraction too,” Napartuk said of why he chose to run for a Liberal Party that has a lot of catching up to do if it wants to defeat the Coalition Avenir Québec of Prime Minister François Legault. majority.

Napartuk served as mayor of Kuujjuaq from 2012 to 2018 before assuming the role of Director of Compassionate and Complementary Services at the Kativik Ilisarniliriniq School Board in Nunavik.

Some of the main issues on his platform include tackling the high cost of living in the North, food security and care for the elderly.

Asked about issues of racism and language laws, Napartuk was quick to say he believed systemic racism existed in the province. He also spoke out against Bill 96, a controversial French language protection bill that the CAQ passed earlier this year.

“In our region of Nunavik, it’s already a challenge to be Inuk, to have Inuktitut as a mother tongue, to have to learn English and French from another group of people,” said Napartuk.

“But to be imposed on her by a government that doesn’t consult, that doesn’t seek opinions on what our reality is, that makes her extremely difficult on so many levels.”

Napartuk, who speaks English, French and Inuktitut, spoke mainly in English and French during the press conference.

At the close of the press conference, Anglade responded to a question from Nunatsiaq News asking if she would visit Nunavik during the campaign. She said she would.

“I think it’s important to demonstrate that it’s not just about words, it’s about actions, it’s about taking this seriously, it’s about having candidates who can really represent region,” Anglade said.

The National Bank Open presented by Rogers, better known as the Canadian Open, remains one of the most prestigious events on the tennis calendar.

The men’s event, part of the ATP Masters 1000 series, will take place this time in Montreal from August 8-14. Meanwhile, the women’s tournament, a WTA 1000 competition, will be hosted by Toronto the same week.

The Canadian Open has been touted as one of the hottest warm-up tournaments ahead of the US Open. It has attracted some of the biggest names in the sport every year and this time is no exception either.

The tournament, however, was dealt a blow with five-time champion Rafael Nadal pulling out just before the start due to fitness issues. Four-time winner Novak Djokovic is also not part of the peloton as he is banned from entering Canada due to his unvaccinated status against COVID-19.

Hemos decided not to travel to Montreal and proseguir con los entrenamientos sin forzar. Agradezco de corazón al director del torneo, Eugène y all su equipo por la compresión y apoyo que siempre me han mostrado y hoy no ha sido una exception.

Despite this, the ATP and WTA events have enough power to keep fans enthralled throughout the week.

World number one Daniil Medvedev is the number one seed and will be looking to successfully defend the title he won last year. The Russian reached the Los Cabos final in Mexico this week and will enter the tournament with plenty of momentum.

World number 4 Carlos Alcaraz is the second seed and will be eager to get back to winning ways after losing his last two finals. The Spaniard notably won the Miami Open – the last ATP Masters 1000 event played in the United States – and will try to build on his success.

Rounding out the top four seeds are 2018 runner-up Stefanos Tsitsipas and Miami runner-up Casper Ruud. The duo will be looking to give Medvedev and Alcaraz a hard time.

Andrey Rublev, Felix Auger-Aliassime, Jannik Sinner and Hubert Hurkacz round out the top eight seeds.

Iga Swiatek is the top seed for the women's side at the Canadian Open

World No. 1 Iga Swiatek leads the field in women’s play. The Pole has been in a mini crisis since winning her second Grand Slam title at Roland Garros in June. After making early exits at Wimbledon and Warsaw, the 21-year-old will be keen to return to the winner’s circle in Toronto.

World No. 2 Anett Kontaveit is the second seed and hopes to continue her recent resurgence in this tournament. She struggled with the aftermath of COVID-19 but managed to reach the final in Hamburg and the quarter-finals in Prague in her last two tournaments.

Rounding out the top eight seeds is Maria Sakkari, Paula Badosa, Ons Jabeur, Aryna Sabalenka, Jessica Pegula and Garbine Muguruza, making this a very competitive field.

Former world number one Serena Williams will continue her comeback at next month’s WTA Canadian Open in Toronto, organizers confirmed on Thursday.#AFPSports➡ u.afp.com/wrBr https://t.co/O94YDIO2FK

Serena Williams, 23-time major champion, who won the Canadian Open three times, will add more strength to the field. She will be seen in action for the first time since her first-round defeat at Wimbledon.

Serena’s sister and seven-time Major winner Venus Williams is also in the draw, as is four-time Grand Slam champion Naomi Osaka.

Emma Raducanu, Simona Halep, Coco Gauff, Elena Rybakina, Amanda Anisimova, Karolina Pliskova, Belinda Bencic and Petra Kvitova are the other players to watch.

Canadians Bianca Andreescu and Leylah Fernandez are both running to get fit in time for tennis’ biggest home event.

On that note, let’s take a look at the Canadian Open channel and streaming details:
