Owning and installing a pipe organ in the basement of a suburban home is not the usual homeowner’s dream. It all started in 1971 when Roland Germain decided to install a pipe organ in the basement of his home to use for practicing. In September 2016, when Germain turned 90 years of age, he decided it was time to sell

Against a team that had only six losses in the season and which has 43 points, the Revolution had a big command while they were playing a double header against l’Inouk Granby which has 13 players from the QMJHL in their lineup.

Indeed, they pushed the Inouk during both meetings forcing the overtime each game. Friday night's game ended in a 4-3 de
