MARCH 22, 2021 – The 32nd Annual GLAAD Media Awards are coming up in April, and several actors from Star Trek: Discovery will be appearing at the virtual event. 

This week, GLAAD announced the details for watching this year’s awards ceremony, along with a list of special guests attending the event. With Star Trek: Discovery’s nomination for Outstanding Drama Series, it isn’t too surprising that several members of the Discovery cast will be attending the virtual ceremony. Actors Wilson Cruz, Anthony Rapp, Ian Alexander and Blu del Barrio are all scheduled to appear.

For more than three decades, GLAAD has honored media across numerous genres for fair, accurate, and inclusive representations of LGBTQ people and issues. 2021 is no exception, with 198 nominees across 28 categories, a notable increase from prior years. According to the announcement, the number of nominees was increased across several categories this year in order to “recognize expanding levels of diverse LGBTQ representation across several media genres.”

If you’d like to watch the 2021 GLAAD Media Awards, it should be a piece of cake. Thanks to a partnership with Google, this year’s ceremony will premiere exclusively on the GLAAD YouTube Channel, Thursday, April 8th at 8pm ET. You can check it out at youtube.com/glaad. The event will also be available to stream on Hulu beginning at 10pm ET the same day, and will be accessible there until the end of June.

Canadiens executive vice-president Jeff Gorton marks new era, meets Montreal media – Globalnews.ca

Published

 on


It’s been the talk of the town among sports fans for the past week: the Montreal Canadiens firing longtime general manager Marc Bergevin and bringing in Jeff Gorton as executive vice-president. The newly appointed VP met with the Montreal media for the first time Friday morning to mark the start of a new era.

The former New York Rangers general manager started by attempting to say a few sentences in French. When finished, he thanked owner Geoff Molson and said, “I hope that was OK.”

Gorton said working for the Habs is a dream. He feels like the Original Six franchise is a good fit, despite the fact that the Massachusetts-born VP grew up cheering for the Boston Bruins.

“You know, the Canadians broke my heart a lot of times. That’s my first memories, like in 1979, probably sticks out as the first one,” he told reporters.

Gorton insisted that he’s just starting out in his new role and he’s still getting a feel for the team. Regardless, the executive vice-president plans to work on player development and wants to add an analytics team.

“I do believe in analytics and I think that the way the game has gone, I think it’s a big piece of information that you need to have,” said Gorton.

A big piece missing from his qualifications is that Gorton doesn’t speak French. He said he’s learning — his wife even bought him lessons — and asks for patience.

“I wanted to be great at golf and I still stink. Right? So I will do my best,” he said, chuckling.

Fans seem to support his effort, saying it’s not language that will help the Habs get out of this season’s slump.

“He did some sentences in French this morning, so I think it’s a good step forward,” said fan Patrick Gervais.

The team is still looking for a French-speaking general manager to complement Gorton. Former Canadiens goalie Patrick Roy has expressed interest in the position. But Gorton says he has yet to draw up a shortlist, adding that it’s unlikely Bergevin’s successor will be named before Christmas.

“I don’t want to commit to anybody. I don’t want to say no to anybody so people can keep calling me if they like,” he said.

However, Global News hockey analyst Brian Wilde doesn’t expect Roy to get the job.

Instead, he said he thinks Molson and Gorton would like “someone who has a lot of experience in scouting and has some experience as an assistant general manager.”

“I think Mark Madden fits the role in Anaheim,” said Wilde.

Wilde says he liked what he heard from Gorton on Friday. But the executive vice-president kept his cards close so fans will have to wait to see what the Gorton era brings.

“I don’t think we got our answer to whether it’s going to be a full rebuild, and I think we’re going to have to wait just to see how many moves he makes,” said Wilde.

Montreal real estate broker fined $1500 for English-language social media ad – CTV News Montreal

Published

 on


MONTREAL —
A Montreal real estate broker has picked up a hefty fine for posting a social media ad in English only.

REMAX Broker Qiang Zhong said he was issued the ticket of $1,500 by the Office québécois de la langue française (OQLF) over the post, which advertised one of his properties.

Zhong said he didn’t mind picking up the bill. “I know the government just wants to promote a French language,” he said. “I don’t have any personal emotion against this stuff.”

The fine came from a violation of Article 52 of Quebec’s French Charter, which states that, “catalogues, brochures, folders, commercial directories and any similar publications must be drawn up in French.”

The OQLF said it became aware of the infraction after a complaint on Oct. 23, 2019.

Zhong said he’s been working as a broker in Montreal for more than a decade after moving here from China, where he’s used to navigating between languages: Mandarin, the official language of Mainlaind China, and Cantonese, which is also common in his home province of Guangdong.

He said he’s still connected with his home communities, and has helped several new Chinese immigrants find homes in Montreal. He said he also encourages newcomers to learn French — the province’s official language.

“Even though I got the bill, I still love Montreal,” he said. “I could get double or triple the money in Toronto in Vancouver, but I want to stay here.”

He also said the ad brought prospective buyers to the REMAX website, which can be viewed in both French and English.
