Mike Ward grew up in Quebec City, the offspring of an anglophone father and a francophone mother. Bicultural through and through, his comedy career has taken place largely in French, but he recently got a chance to show his dual roots at Just for Laughs' Les Anglos gala. According to La Presse, he ended up stealing the show.
His lighthearted approach to the question of language and culture in his home province is on full display in this interview with La Presse, conducted ahead of the gala. Ward jokes, «J'étais plus anglo à Québec et, à Montréal, je suis plus franco. Aujourd'hui, plus personne ne me juge, mais c'est peut-être parce que je passe à la télé!» ("I was more anglo in Quebec City and in Montreal I'm more franco. Now, nobody judges me anymore, but maybe that's because I'm on TV!"). He also takes the opportunity to dispel three common stereotypes of anglos, squeezing in a jab at Toronto mayor Rob Ford and defending Albertans while he's at it.

Don’t let politics ruin a great youth arts program!
When the PQ called an election last spring, the Quebec Ministry of Culture was obliged to abruptly suspend a number of its funding programs, including “Film Education for Youth”. In previous years, this funding has ensured that Summer Film Camp was accessible to all families within the community.
Rooney Productions has successfully delivered Film Camp to hundreds of teen-aged participants over the last five years, and there was no question of cancelling this year. Parents’ registrations have ensured full enrollment for the sixth year in a row.
Various Film Camp “graduates” have gone on to star in Theatre Wakefield main-stage productions, done technical work on shows, enrolled into university arts programs, taken arts-related summer jobs, and served as community volunteers, including as members of our own Board!

Directed by Paul Hopkins
Come join us in the park for a new season of Shakespeare-in-the-Park!
The adventurous tale of a rebellious prince who grows up to become one of England’s most
revered kings. Adapted from William Shakespeare’s historical plays Henry IV pt. 1, pt. 2 and
Henry V, this story follows Prince Henry, who seems to be doing everything a young prince
shouldn’t. But when he’s called upon to become king and ‘pay the debt he never promised,’ he
rises to the occasion, uniting a country and inspiring a nation.

From multidisciplinary artist Khadija Baker:
Map your songs…make our dreams, is a multi-disciplinary web project (animation, audio/video) involving participative storytelling and animation to create active spaces of empathy and greater understanding. It explores the social aspects of violence in the Arab world and specifically how it affects women and children.
The project embraces stories and interviews from women and children from Syria who live in refugee camps at Kawergosk Syrian refugee camp in the Kurdish region of northern Iraq, near Erbil city. The project includes a local community-building component that serves to unite parents in Montreal with mothers in the Middle East. In this work, I explore stories of displacement and loss and strive to create connection with viewers/participants as witnesses to the lived experience and to promote ways violence survivors mange to keep alive. In addition, I will examine the effectiveness of arts in passing knowledge and incites alternative ways for peacemaking discussions.Read full...
