PHOTO BY NICOLE GIRARD We’re hoping Hobbes (right) with his brother Calvin is well on his way to recovery. Hey beautiful people, how are you? I have a question for you – how many of you are pet owners, or should I say have fur babies? Show of hands please. Those of you who follow this little column probably know by now that my bestie and I have two furry felines, Calvin and Hobbes. We have had them for about seven years now and for some reason each cat has bonded to one of us

PHOTO COURTESY CASCA Noemie is a very sweet kitten who loves to be petted. She will come running to you and rub against you until you give her attention. She may seem shy at first but soon comes out of her shell. Noemie loves to play with her toys and she has the softest fur! She gets along well with other cats and would be fine around children. She could be okay around calmer dogs. Noemie was born on August 1, 2019 and has been vaccinated and sterilized. For more information

Open letter to Hudsonites I would like to start by saying that Hudson and its citizens should be very proud to have pioneered pesticide controls to protect our environment and citizens. At the February 2020 Hudson council meeting, JJ Corker asked in the first question period if the town had received the annual report on pesticide usage as required by By-Law 270, paragraph 5. The answer was no, and part of the reasoning given was as follows: the provincial government did not w
Thank You to the Hudson Fire Department
We are indeed very lucky to live in a town with such an accomplished Fire Department.
We had reason to call upon their services late Sunday night, February 23.
The dispatcher from beyond Quebec City was bilingual and within three minutes she had called the Hudson Fire Department and was able to tell me that they were on their way.
Hudson Fire Department spent approximately one hour here sorting everything out and all was well.
