Set on the isolated island of fog-shrouded sand dunes, these true accounts are tragic and inspiring.

Canada's largest city often makes national headlines, not only for its successes and innovations, but also for its resilience in times of suffering.

A shrewd politician, René Lévesque made Quebec separatism a reality. The Parti Québécois thrived because of his passion, integrity, and considerable charm.

In an era when some preferred to use firebombs to get their point across, Lévesque wanted Quebeckers to vote on separation. But in May 1980, the people of Quebec voted a resounding "no." For Lévesque, it was the end of a dream.
