Pierrefonds Comprehensive High School
Pierrefonds Comprehensive High School is a non-denominational, English speaking educational facility located in the Pierrefonds-Roxboro borough of Montreal, Canada with an enrollment capacity of 1,200 students, in grades 7 through 11. It operates within the Lester B. Pearson School Board and has functioned as a secondary school since 1971; the principal of the school is Colleen Galley. PCHS began as an academic and vocational high school for both English and French speaking Catholic students to accommodate West Island population expansion at the beginning of the 1970s. Prior to its opening in 1971, established West Island schools such as Saint Thomas High School, located in Pointe-Claire, were doubling their enrolments to accommodate Catholic students. Protestant students were served by Riverdale High School, which opened in 1965. Conceived under the proposed name of Villa Nova, PCHS opened as Polyvalente de Pierrefonds Comprehensive High School, to better reflect its multi-disciplined approach.
In 1977 it ceded half its population when French speaking students moved to the new Polyvalente des Sources high school, located nearby. PCHS remained a Catholic school until 1998, when Quebec's Catholic and Protestant school boards were replaced with a secular, linguistically based system. In 1994 it began its International Baccalaureate program which continues to this day, in 1995 undertook a campaign to amend its name, although a strategic focus group decided to keep the name "comprehensive" to reflect both the wide variety of programs and services offered and the commitment to meeting all student needs. In 2001 it celebrated its 30th anniversary and honoured four teachers for their long standing and exceptional educational service and dedication to the school. PCHS was built as an "open-concept" over a "reflected plan", meaning that one side mirrors the other, along an axial core, it features a large cafeteria at the center and a gigantic gymnasium, or "field house", at the south end, connected by a tunnel.
Designed by a California architect, as recommended by the school's first principal Mr. John Oss, it employed industrial visual cues like unfinished concrete walls, exposed ceiling pipes and ducts that were painted primary red and yellow enamel, small windows that did not open. Walls between adjoining classrooms could be moved to allow for team teaching of up to 4 classes at a time; this was only used in the early years for English Literature classes. Stylistically it was considered radical for an educational institution at the time due to the fact that the classrooms had no doors, an experiment that resulted in students sometimes being distracted by people passing by in the halls; the school was still being finished when classes began in the fall of 1971. Besides its International Baccalaureate program, PCHS participates in an aggressive immersion program, an English program and a Handicapped program. In sports it is a member of the GMAA and is represented by the "Trojans'" who are the Male Athletes and the "Lady Trojans" who are the Female athletes.
It has a wide variety of sports for different kinds of interest such as touch football, soccer and field, softball, swimming, tennis etc. One of their coaches is Hank Palmer. Throughout the years students must choose between three art options: visual arts and music. In grades 7 and 8 students have the choice of dance as one of their art options. Starting in grade 9 students are allowed to change their art option if the one they chose in grade 7 does not see them fit. In grades 10 and 11 students must choose between SN mathematics courses, it is important for students to choose the proper one since SN mathematics is a prerequisite for certain CEGEP programs. In grade 10 students may choose two classes out of a variety of different classes to go into in grade 11; these classes differ year to year but contain: physics, biology, leadership, cooking Features Auditorium: State-of-the-art professional theatre. Art facilities: Well-equipped art, drama music rooms. Science and technology facilities: 11 science labs, 2 computer labs with 34 computers per lab, computer workstations located in individual classrooms.
Library: Newly renovated and automated library, access to books in French and Spanish. Atrium: A place situated next to the library where people may socialize.

2017 Montreal municipal election
Municipal elections were held in the city of Montreal, Canada on November 5, 2017 as part of the 2017 Quebec municipal elections. Voters elected 65 positions on the Montreal City Council, including the mayor, borough mayors, city councillors, as well as 38 borough councillors. Despite early polls giving incumbent mayor Denis Coderre a comfortable lead, the election concluded with Valérie Plante of Projet Montréal winning the mayoralty race by a margin of over 27,000 votes, becoming the first woman and first representative of Projet Montréal to be elected mayor of Montreal, her party won a majority of 34 of 65 councillors. Projet Montréal won unanimous control of majorities on seven more. Équipe Denis Coderre pour Montréal won unanimous control of four borough councils and majorities on two more. The two remaining boroughs, Anjou and LaSalle, were won unanimously by local parties, Équipe Anjou and Équipe Barbe Team respectively. Several key city council figures were defeated, such as Russell Copeman, Harout Chitilian, Claude Dauphin, Anie Samson, Réal Ménard and Elsie Lefebvre.
Projet Montréal founder Richard Bergeron, who had crossed the floor to Équipe Coderre, was defeated by the candidate for his former party, Robert Beaudry. Following his defeat, Denis Coderre announced he would resign from political life, leaving his city council seat to his co-candidate Chantal Rossi. On November 9, members of his party elected Darlington councillor Lionel Perez as leader. Coalition Montréal was left with only one remaining elected official, Montreal's longest-serving city councillor Marvin Rotrand. Vrai changement pour Montréal, which had come in second in the mayoralty race in the previous election, lost all its seats, announced it would suspend its activities. For the first time, a majority of Montreal's elected officials were women. However, only six of the 103 elected officials, including four of the 65 members of the city council, declared themselves to be members of visible minorities. Visible minorities make up a third of the population of the city. Another elected official, Champlain–L'Île-des-Soeurs city councillor Marie-Josée Parent, of Mi'kmaq ancestry, became the first indigenous person elected to Montreal city council.
The official results were released on November 8, 2017. There was one request for a recount, in the race for borough councillor for La Pointe-des-Prairies in Rivière-des-Prairies–Pointe-aux-Trembles, in which Lisa Christensen of Projet Montréal had been announced as the winner with a lead of 32 votes; the recount was conducted by a judge of the Court of Quebec and Ms. Christensen was confirmed as the winner by a majority of 30 votes.

Provinces and territories of Canada
The provinces and territories of Canada are the sub-national governments within the geographical areas of Canada under the authority of the Canadian Constitution. In the 1867 Canadian Confederation, three provinces of British North America—New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, the Province of Canada —were united to form a federated colony, becoming a sovereign nation in the next century. Over its history, Canada's international borders have changed several times, the country has grown from the original four provinces to the current ten provinces and three territories. Together, the provinces and territories make up the world's second-largest country by area. Several of the provinces were former British colonies, Quebec was a French colony, while others were added as Canada grew; the three territories govern the rest of the area of the former British North America. The major difference between a Canadian province and a territory is that provinces receive their power and authority from the Constitution Act, 1867, whereas territorial governments have powers delegated to them by the Parliament of Canada.
The powers flowing from the Constitution Act are divided between the Government of Canada and the provincial governments to exercise exclusively. A change to the division of powers between the federal government and the provinces requires a constitutional amendment, whereas a similar change affecting the territories can be performed unilaterally by the Parliament of Canada or government. In modern Canadian constitutional theory, the provinces are considered to be sovereign within certain areas based on the divisions of responsibility between the provincial and federal government within the Constitution Act 1867, each province thus has its own representative of the Canadian "Crown", the lieutenant governor; the territories are not sovereign, but instead their authorities and responsibilities come directly from the federal level, as a result, have a commissioner instead of a lieutenant governor. Notes: There are three territories in Canada. Unlike the provinces, the territories of Canada have no inherent sovereignty and have only those powers delegated to them by the federal government.
They include all of mainland Canada north of latitude 60° north and west of Hudson Bay, as well as most islands north of the Canadian mainland. The following table lists the territories in order of precedence. Ontario, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia were the original provinces, formed when several British North American colonies federated on July 1, 1867, into the Dominion of Canada and by stages began accruing the indicia of sovereignty from the United Kingdom. Prior to this and Quebec were united as the Province of Canada. Over the following years, British Columbia, Prince Edward Island were added as provinces; the British Crown had claimed two large areas north-west of the Canadian colony, known as Rupert's Land and the North-Western Territory and assigned them to the Hudson's Bay Company. In 1870, the company relinquished its claims for £300,000, assigning the vast territory to the Government of Canada. Subsequently, the area was re-organized into the province of the Northwest Territories; the Northwest Territories were vast at first, encompassing all of current northern and western Canada, except for the British holdings in the Arctic islands and the Colony of British Columbia.
The British claims to the Arctic islands were transferred to Canada in 1880, adding to the size of the Northwest Territories. The year of 1898 saw the Yukon Territory renamed as Yukon, carved from the parts of the Northwest Territories surrounding the Klondike gold fields. On September 1, 1905, a portion of the Northwest Territories south of the 60th parallel north became the provinces of Alberta and Saskatchewan. In 1912, the boundaries of Quebec and Manitoba were expanded northward: Manitoba's to the 60° parallel, Ontario's to Hudson Bay and Quebec's to encompass the District of Ungava. In 1869, the people of Newfoundland voted to remain a British colony over fears that taxes would increase with Confederation, that the economic policy of the Canadian government would favour mainland industries. In 1907, Newfoundland acquired dominion status. In the middle of the Great Depression in Canada with Newfoundland facing a prolonged period of economic crisis, the legislature turned over political control to the Newfoundland Commission of Government in 1933.
Following Canada's participation in World War II, in a 1948 referendum, a narrow majority of Newfoundland citizens voted to join the Confederation, on March 31, 1949, Newfoundland became Canada's tenth province. In 2001, it was renamed Newfoundland and Labrador. In 1903, the Alaska Panhandle Dispute fixed British Columbia's northwestern boundary; this was one of only two provinces in Canadian history to have its size reduced. The second reduction, in 1927, occurred when a boundary dispute between Canada and the Dominion of Newfoundland saw Labrador increased at Quebec's expense – this land returned to Canada, as part of the province of Newfoundland, in 1949. In 1999, Nunavut was created from the eastern portion of the Northwest Territories. Yukon lies in the western portion of Northern Canada. All t
National Assembly of Quebec
The National Assembly of Quebec is the legislative body of the province of Quebec in Canada. Legislators are called MNAs; the Queen in Right of Quebec, represented by the Lieutenant Governor of Quebec and the National Assembly compose the Legislature of Quebec, which operates in a fashion similar to those of other Westminster-style parliamentary systems. The National Assembly was the lower house of Quebec's legislature and was called the Legislative Assembly of Quebec. In 1968, the upper house, the Legislative Council, was abolished and the remaining house was renamed; the office of President of the National Assembly is equivalent to speaker in other legislatures. The Coalition Avenir Québec has the most seats in the Assembly following the Quebec general election, 2018; the Legislative Assembly was created in Lower Canada by the Constitutional Act of 1791. It was abolished from 1841 to 1867 under the 1840 Act of Union, which merged Upper Canada and Lower Canada into a single colony named the Province of Canada.
The Constitution Act, 1867, which created Canada, split the Province of Canada into the provinces of Ontario and Quebec. The Legislative Assembly of Lower Canada was thus restored as the Legislative Assembly of the Province of Quebec; the original Quebec legislature was bicameral, consisting of the Legislative Council and the Legislative Assembly. In 1968, Bill 90 was passed by the government of Premier Jean-Jacques Bertrand, abolishing the Legislative Council and renaming the Legislative Assembly the "National Assembly", in line with the more strident nationalism of the Quiet Revolution. Before 1968, there had been various unsuccessful attempts at abolishing the Legislative Council, analogous to the Senate of Canada. In 1978, television cameras were brought in for the first time to televise parliamentary debates; the colour of the walls was changed to suit the needs of television and the salon vert became the salon bleu. Constructed between 1877 and 1886, the Parliament Building features the Second Empire architectural style, popular for prestigious buildings both in Europe and the United States during the latter 19th century.
Although somewhat more sober in appearance and lacking a towering central belfry, Quebec City's Parliament Building bears a definite likeness to the Philadelphia City Hall, another Second Empire edifice in North America, built during the same period. Though the building's symmetrical layout with a frontal clock tower in the middle is typical of legislative institutions of British heritage, the architectural style is believed to be unique among parliament buildings found in other Canadian provincial capitals, its facade presents a pantheon representing significant people of the history of Quebec. Additional buildings were added next to the Parliament Buildings: Édifice André-Laurendeau was added from 1935 to 1937 to house the Ministry of Transport. Édifice Honoré-Mercier was added from 1922 to 1925 to house the Ministries of the Treasury, the Attorney General and the Secretary General of the National Assembly. Édifice Jean-Antoine-Panet was added from 1931 to 1932 for the Ministry of Agriculture.
Édifice Pamphile-Le May added from 1910 to 1915 for the Library of the National Assembly, various other government offices and for the Executive Council. General elections are held every five years or less. Any person holding Canadian citizenship and who has resided in Quebec for at least six months qualifies to be on the electoral list; the leader of the political party with the largest number of elected candidates is asked by the Lieutenant-Governor of Quebec to form the government as premier.. Quebec's territory is divided into 125 electoral districts. In each riding, the candidate who receives the most votes is elected and becomes a Member of the National Assembly; this is known as the first-past-the-post voting system. It tends to produce strong disparities in the number of seats won compared to the popular vote best exemplified by the 1966, 1970, 1973, 1998 elections. Quebec elections have tended to be volatile since the 1970s, producing a large turnover in Assembly seats. Existing political parties lose more than half their seats with the rise of new or opposition political parties.
For instance, the 1970 and 1973 saw the demise of the Union Nationale and rise of the Parti Québécois which managed to take power in 1976. The 1985 and 1994 elections saw the Liberals lose power in landslide elections; the 2018 elections saw the rise of the Coalition Avenir Québec which managed to take power for the first time. Cabinet ministers are in bold, party leaders are in italic and the president of the National Assembly is marked with a †. Last update: March 21, 2019 Members of the National Assembly swear two oaths: one to the Canadian monarch as Quebec's head of state, a second one to the people of Quebec. Previous Parti Québécois premier René Lévesque added the second oath. One of the members of the National Assembly is chosen as the President of the Assembly
The West Island is the unofficial name given to the cities and boroughs at the western end of the Island of Montreal, in Quebec, Canada. It is considered to consist of the cities of Dorval, Pointe-Claire, Dollard-des-Ormeaux, Baie-D'Urfé, Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue, the village of Senneville, two boroughs of the city of Montreal: Pierrefonds-Roxboro and L'Île-Bizard–Sainte-Geneviève. Furthermore, given the nature of suburban demographic development in Montréal, off-island suburbs towards the west of the island in addition to outer-ring boroughs of Montréal are sometimes considered part of the West Island; this is in large part due to similarities in personal income, design of the communities, services available, quality of life and economic engines supporting the population as well as the bilingual characteristic of the population. There was a linguistic division of the island of Montreal into French and English'halves', with Francophones inhabiting the eastern portion of the island and Anglophones inhabiting the western half.
The West Island's population is 234,000 and although the overwhelming majority of its residents are today bilingual if not multi-lingual, anglophones still make up a plurality of the West Island's population. Given its population, the West Island is similar in size to Windsor, Longueuil, Burnaby or Regina. Curiously, as late as the 1960s, much of the West Island was farmland populated by French Canadians, which in turn accounts for a significant Francophone cultural influence in the region; the region is home to the Montréal–Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport, John Abbott College, Cégep Gérald-Godin, the Macdonald Campus of McGill University, the Fairview Pointe-Claire and Galeries des Sources malls, as well as Montreal's largest park, the Cap-Saint-Jacques Nature Park. Hospitals include the Veteran's Hospital in Sainte-Anne's and the Lakeshore General Hospital in Pointe-Claire. Municipalities range in character from the modern bedroom communities of Kirkland or Dollard-des-Ormeaux to the former cottage-country homes of Dorval, Pointe Claire and Beaconsfield.
Development and the concentration of industrial activity along highways 20, 40 and 15 over the last twenty years has made securing the region's remaining tracts of open land a priority for many West Island residents. Indeed, the West Island is home to one of the last large remaining tracts of Montreal-region wilderness on island; the history of human settlement in the West Island of Montréal predates European colonization beginning towards the early-mid 17th century, but far too little is known of the history of the St. Lawrence Iroquoians who inhabited the island in the pre-colonial era. Indeed, between Cartier's first contact in 1535–1536 and the arrival of Champlain in 1608, the local Iroquoians had disappeared, most from near-constant warfare with other neighbouring Iroquois tribes the Mohawk; the West Island may have had areas of regular human habitation as the history of human settlement in Montreal goes back at least as far as 8,000 years. European colonization led to the establishment of parishes and small trading outposts along a Chemin du Roy laid out in the 17th century that corresponds more or less directly with the Gouin & Lakeshore boulevards of today.
Lachine, Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue, Sainte-Genevieve and Pointe-Claire developed in a more or less interconnected fashion as colonial outposts spread out along the edge of the island. During the Ancien Régime of the early colonial era, these communities had their own parish churches, many of which still exist. In addition to the churches and rectories, religious orders of various types had set up monasteries and convents and the like throughout the West Island, given its proximity to Ville-Marie. Seigneurial system land divisions and the development of the'montée & rang' main road system allowed for the development of a vast agricultural territory, protected by forts, seigneurial manor houses and the geographic advantages of being on a densely forested island. Though much of the West Island is today a vast low-density modern suburban development, most of the principal roads were developed in the 17th and 18th centuries, inasmuch as land division follows examples common to the Ancien Régime. Moreover, the West Island has a small number of critical 18th century heritage properties, in addition to parish churches, summer villas and the remnants of Fort Senneville, constituting the principle remnants from the early and middle colonial period in this area.
Other important heritage properties include the numerous 19th century summer homes, farm houses and the turn of the century villages in Pointe-Claire, Saint-Anne's or Sainte-Genevieve. A key element of local architecture, as noted by author-historian Jean-Claude Marsan, is that the Habitant house-style of the 17th century proved so reliable and aesthetically pleasing it was repeated well into the 20th century with few major structural modifications. Houses of this kind can be found throughout the region. Key early settlements leading up to the major post-war suburban developments include: Dorval, founded between 1665–1667 as a Sulpician mission, became a village in 1892, a town in 1903 and a city in 1956, its development came in 1855 when the Grand Trunk Railroad established a station at Dorval, leading the hamlet to develop into a summer retreat for wealthy early-Victorian Era Montreal elites. Through the start of the century until the Second World War, the village became a town we
Area codes 514 and 438
Area codes 514 and 438 are the telephone area codes for Montreal and most of its on-island suburbs. They cover the Island of Montreal, Île Perrot, Île Bizard in the province of Quebec; the main area code, 514, was one of the 86 original North American Numbering Plan Areas defined in 1947. 438 is an overlay area code covering the same area. The 514 area code has been split twice; the incumbent local exchange carrier for 514/438 is Bell Canada. The competitive local exchange carriers for 514/438 are Vidéotron, Telus and some independent companies. Montreal's local calls were handled manually by operators. In 1898, exchange names were added before the number; the initial rotary dial exchange, "Lancaster", was deployed April 25, 1925. Subscribers dialled two letters of an exchange name and four digits, so "Lancaster 1234" became LA-1234; the initial area codes were created in 1947 as routing codes for operator-assisted calls. Québec and Ontario were the only provinces. Quebec was split between area codes 514 and 418.
514 covered the entire western half of Quebec, from the Canada–US border to the Hudson Strait. This area nominally included several remote areas in the far northern portion of the province which, at the time, didn't have telephone service; the first Bell System direct distance dial call was made in 1951, from Englewood, New Jersey to Alameda, using a system based on fixed-length area codes plus seven-digit local numbers. Montreal and Toronto, the largest Canadian cities, were six digits at the time. Between 1951 and 1958, numbers were lengthened by adding a digit in preparation for deployment of direct distance dialling; the 514 area code was split in 1957 to create area code 819 for most of western Quebec, from Estrie to the Ontario border, with the then-unserved far northern portion nominally added to 418. 514 was reduced to the region surrounding Montreal. Despite Montreal's rapid growth in the second half of the 20th century, this configuration remained unchanged for 41 years. In 1998, the off-island suburbs became area code 450, which now surrounds 514.
This left 514 as the Island of a few surrounding smaller islands. The 1998 split was intended as a long-term solution to a shortage of available numbers in Canada's second-largest toll-free calling zone. However, within less than a decade 514 was close to exhaustion once again due to Montreal's rapid growth and Canada's inefficient system of number allocation. Unlike the United States, Canada does not use number pooling as a relief measure; every competing carrier is given access to blocks of 10,000 numbers—corresponding to a single prefix—in every rate centre, no matter how small. This resulted in thousands of wasted numbers, a problem exacerbated by the proliferation of cell phones. While smaller rate centres don't need that many numbers, a number can't be allocated elsewhere once assigned to a CLEC and rate centre. Many larger cities are split between multiple rate centres. Montreal is an exception; the number allocation problem is not as severe in Montreal as in other areas of Canada, since numbers tend to be used up quickly.
However, it was obvious. By this time, overlay area codes had become the preferred relief measure in Canada, as they are an easy workaround for the number allocation problem; the 514 area was overlaid with area code 438 on November 4, 2006, making ten-digit dialing mandatory in the Montreal area. Although the number allocation problem has never been addressed, under current projections Montreal will not need another area code until 2025. Despite Montreal's continued growth, 514/438 is nowhere near exhaustion. Area code 438 was considered for overlaying 450 as well, but a decision determined that 579 would be the overlay code for that area. Montreal — most of / except as listed belowA few western on-island suburbs were never combined into the main Montreal rate centre and therefore have a reduced subset of the Montreal local calling area. In some cases, the corresponding municipality disappeared in the 2002 forced amalgamation but the restricted local calling area remains; these arbitrary boundaries do not correspond in any way to the original boroughs, the "une île, une ville" municipal amalgamation or the subsequent de-fusion of areas like Westmount.

Cap-Saint-Jacques Nature Park
Cap-Saint-Jacques is a regional park in Montreal, located in the West Island at the junction of the Lake of Two Mountains and the Rivière des Prairies. Situated on a peninsula, three quarters of the park are bordered by water. At 3.02 km2, it is the largest park in Montreal. The land for the park was purchased on February 1980 according to the North Shore News paper; the park features a natural sand beach and an organic farm, which raises animals and grows organic produce. Farm activities are offered by the non profit D-Trois-Pierres; the park's bays are home including the map turtle. Environmental science activities are offered by the Groupe uni des éducateurs-naturalistes et professionnels en environnement; the park includes stands of silver birch and sugar maple, with a sugar shack where visitors can watch the production of maple syrup, in season. The park has over 30 km of trails for cross country skiing; the name "Cap St. Jacques" was written on maps as early as 1744; the land mass south of the of Cap St. Jacques is the Jacques Cartier electoral district.
The French Wikipedia article conjectures the name comes from Jacques Bizard, but both Jacques Cartier and Jacques Bizard have not been named Saints. There is a street named "St. Jacques" in the city of Montreal dated 1672. There is a land area called the Saint-Jacques Escarpment on the island of Montreal. Has toilets and flush. Has a beach. Open during summer.
