MONTREAL

ialik students recently participated in a new hands-on program that gave them deeper insight into Quebecois cooking. As part of the school's 'Semaine de la culture Québécoise', the new 'Dégustation de recettes Québécoises' project had Secondary I and II students researching traditional Quebecois specialty dishes. They learned about the history of the dishes, how to adapt them to a kosher kitchen, measure out the various ingredients, and create both a video and a poster that explained the ingredients, the history and the making of their dish. The finished products were proudly served up to their teachers and fellow students at a special food fair. According to Lysie-Anne Desrochers, Coordinatrice du département de francais, "What Bialik Secondary II students, (L-R) Avi Korman, made this particular program so popular and Charles Presser, Evan Schachter, and Jesse memorable was that our students learned a lot about Quebec culture while having fun.

How to sell high: Avoid these three mistakes when selling your home

WEDNESDAY

February 15, 2017

MONTREAL - When you decide to sell your home, setting your asking price is one of the most important decisions you will ever make. Depending on how a buyer is made aware of your home, price is often the first thing he or she sees, and many homes are discarded by prospective buyers as not being in the appropriate price range before they're even given a chance of showing. Your asking price is often your home's "first impression", and if you want to realize the most money you can for your home, it's imperative that you make a good first impression. This is not as easy as it sounds, and pricing strategy should not be taken lightly. Pricing too high can be as costly to a home seller as pricing too low.

Taking a look at what homes in your neighborhood have sold for is only a small part of the process, and on it's own is not nearly enough to help you make the best decision. A recently study, which compiles 10 years of industry research, has resulted in a new special report entitled "Home sellers: How to Get the Price You Want( and Need)".This report will help you understand pricing strategy from three different angles. When taken together, this information will help you price your home to not only sell, but sell for the price you want. To order a FREE Special Report, visit: www.sellmyhouseformore.ca Get your free special report NOW to learn how to price your home to your maximum financial advantage

Nightlife For the late-nighters, W Montreal offers a nightlife experience unlike any other without even leaving the property. For starters, their Wunderbar is a multi-level cocktail lounge that draws from the local culture. Bartini is a little bar located in the middle of W Montreal that keeps the party going until 3am Thursdays through Saturdays. The Plateau Lounge Montreal is set up living-room style for guests to enjoy all the amenities of home, without having to mix their own drinks. Green Guests A little-known fact about W Montreal is that the hotel strives for green choices for themselves and their guests. As a Starwood hotel, for each day a guest turns down housekeeping, they receive 500 Starwood Preferred Guest Starpoints. Starpoints can be redeemed for future stays at all Starwood hotels.

Other steps W Montreal has taken to attaining green operations are energy efficient lighting and power, regular maintenance and tune-ups to appliances, the donation of old linens and supplies to local non-profit organizations, as well as paperless check-ins and elimination of paper directories. Even the onsite restaurant strives for sustainability by serving 40 percent local and organic produce, a selection of organic and biodynamic wines, and menus that are based on seasonal availability that also eliminate threatened species. All of these strategies mean that guests have another reason to feel good about their stay! Anytime, dedicated service and exceptional comfort, all in a fantastic location within the city. Book your next vacation at W Montreal to emerge yourself in the city’s culture without sacrificing the comforts of home. www.wmontrealhotel.com

ith the weather starting to add a bit of a chill in the air, and the sun starting to set earlier, these are sure signs that winter is making its slow but steady arrival. And whether you are a Canadian snowbird or someone who would like a brief break from the cold and snow of a Canadian winter, the Sunshine State itself, Florida, is making its clarion call to those Canadian tourists who are craving that winter escape. And there are many Canadians who are heeding that call. In fact, they are doing it in droves. Last year, out of the 106.6 million international visitors who made Florida their vacation destination, about 3.8 million of them were from Canada, helping to contribute towards a massive tourism industry in Florida that is worth over $89 billion. And there are many obvious reasons why they flock to Florida every year; there are the many sites and attractions, the easygoing way of life, the different regions and areas that have their own unique imprint, and of course, the multitude of sandy beaches, blue oceans, and plenty of warmth and sunshine. Last month, the Florida visitors bureau – Visit Florida – hosted a special “Flock to Florida” breakfast at the W Hotel in downtown Montreal, where representatives from seven Florida regions told a group of local travel writers what the Sunshine State has to offer Canadian visitors this winter, as they make their annual winter migration south.

The Jax Ale Trail gives visitors the opportunity to delve into their own brewery tour, as they can visit and sample the wares at the eight craft breweries that dot the Jacksonville landscape, such as the Aardwolf Brewing Company, the Engine 16 Brewing Co., and the Pinglehead Brewing Company. Visitors are encouraged to pick up a special passport, and get it stamped with every purchase made at any of the breweries along the Jax Ale Trail, which can be exchanged for a selection of free Jacksonville swag such as t-shirts and beer koozies.

Highlights include Estero Island, which has been deemed as one of the “world’s safest beaches”; Periwinkle Way on Sanibel Island, which offers lush foliage, shops and restaurants, and buildings that are no taller than the tallest palm tree; Captiva Island, known for its natural beauty, and was the place where Anne Morrow Lindbergh wrote her best selling book “Gift from the Sea”; and Gasparilla Island, which includes the beach town of Boca Grande, which was recognized by Travel & Leisure magazine as one of the 50 best romantic getaways.
