claimed to be a sporting champion whose brave and public battle against cancer turned her into a national hero across France.
But when Florence le Vot
was asked to become the patron of a charity to tackle the disease her conscience finally got the better of her.

...While surfing on a Singapore site called FlashMove
, I came across a zany Flash site: A wonder bit of inscrutable Japanese-inspired French
animation from Studio Tanuki
in the form of Pinpin Lelapin
, an adorable pink balloon bunny rabbit who farts on people. In addition to the giddy animation and stylised artwork on the site is the unique "Super Mario"-type run-and-jump navigation. (Note: Mostly in French, with some Japanese and broken English. Contains Flash, music, farts, giant mecha battles and a Sailor Moon parody.)

October Coffee Crisis.
Montreal Gazette: "In its communiques, the BAF warned that Second Cup franchises were to be 'in the line of fire' and warned of an escalation of violent acts if Second Cup and other chains insist on keeping their trademark English names." More Trudeau nostalgia?

It's midnight on the East Coast, and like clockwork there is a new column on the site. Today I cast the spotlight on today's summit meeting of the leaders of French-speaking countries in Moncton, New Brunswick. Didn't think Poland spoke French? Read the article.
