Katrine gagne le vote de son coach, mais pas celui du public, et les Québécois réagissent

« En bon québécois : kossé-ça? »

Katerine et Michaela La Voix 8 équipe de Marc Dupré

Les quarts de finale de La Voix 8 se poursuivaient ce dimanche soir, malgré le lieu de tournage en zone rouge. Pour ce faire, l'émission en direct avait lieu, cette fois, sans public alors que les familles pouvaient soutenir leurs chanteurs à distance. La jeune Katrine, de l'équipe de Marc, était donc seule pour une défaite qui a surpris les fans de l'émission.  

Après La Voix du 27 septembre, majoritairement composée de chansons en anglais, les Québécois étaient bien contents d'entendre les chanteurs performer dans la langue de Molière.

Katrine Sansregret a réussi à toucher les fans et les coachs avec S'il suffisait d'aimer de Céline Dion. Une interprétation très touchante qui lui a valu le vote de Marc, mais pas celui de tout le Québec.  

C'est Michaela Cahill qui s'est taillé une place en demi finale avec sa magnifique interprétation de You And I de Lady Gaga.

La sélection de l'éditeur : Charles d'Occupation Double en est à sa 3e téléréalité québécoise

Marc a donné 32 points à Michaela, 33 points à Francis et 35 points à Katrine. 

Le public a donné 51 % des votes à Michaela, 17 % à Francis et 32 % à Katrine. Ce qui a surpris plusieurs fans. 

Michaela, placée en troisième position par son coach, a donc remporté avec un pointage de 83. 

Sur les réseaux sociaux, plusieurs Québécois ont exprimé leur déception de voir la jeune artiste de 16 ans quitter la compétition. 

Les vainqueurs de cette soirée sont donc Clément Jacques, Suzie Villeneuve, Michaela Cahill et Flora Stein. 

On Monday, June 21, an update was announced regarding the Saskatchewan reopening plan.

According to a news release from the province, "With more than 70 per cent of residents over the age of 18 having received their first dose of COVID-19 vaccine, the full implementation of Step 3 of the Re-Opening Roadmap will occur on Sunday, July 11."

The province has officially surpassed the vaccination threshold needed to fully reopen and on Sunday, July 11, the people of Saskatchewan can say goodbye to all public health orders.

This includes the mandatory masking order as well as the limit on event and gathering sizes. Though, the provincial government does say that business owners can still choose to put mask requirements in place if they want.

As for gatherings and events, while there won't be any formal mandates anymore, it is still advised to consider spacing and crowd control, continue enhanced cleaning procedures, and be aware of public health prevention practices.


Plusieurs habitant.es de la Rive-Nord ont découvert avec effroi en fin d'après-midi une possible tornade à Mascouche et ont rapidement partagé des images assez saisissantes sur les réseaux sociaux.*

En début de journée ce 21 juin, une veille d'orages violents a été émise, prévenant des conditions qui s'approchaient du sud de la province.

C'est vers 16 h 00, dans le secteur de Mascouche, que d'énormes nuages en entonnoir ont été filmés. La météorologue de MétéoMédia a indiqué qu'il s'agissait d'une possible tornade.


Selon des citoyen.nes du coin, des débris auraient été envolés et les rafales auraient causé certains dommages.


Le maire de Mascouche, Guillaume Tremblay a tenu à adresser la situation via sa page Facebook.



« Tornade à Mascouche: On signale plusieurs bris à quelques endroits sur le territoire. Les équipes d'urgences sont sur place pour les secteurs les plus touchés », a-t-il écrit.

Selon Hydro-Québec, ce sont près de 3 000 clients qui étaient privés d'électricité en début de soirée dans le secteur.



Le phénomène a continué sa route vers l'est et une alerte de tornade a également été émise dans la région de Québec vers 17 h.

« À 16 h 50, les météorologues d'Environnement Canada surveillent un orage violent produisant possiblement une tornade. Des vents destructeurs, de la grosse grêle et de la pluie intense par endroits sont aussi possibles. Le radar Doppler montre une tornade potentielle près de Saint-Lambert-de-Lauzon se dirigeant vers le nord-est », peut-on lire sur le site d'Environnement Canada.

L'organisme rappelle également qu'il s'agit d'une « situation dangereuse pouvant causer des blessures mortelles » et conseille à la population de se mettre à l'abris.

* MISE À JOUR, 21 juin : Environnement Canada a confirmé qu'il s'agissait bel et bien d'une tornade, selon CTV.

41% Of Canadians Think The Country Has A Problem With 'Exaggerating Racism'

Two provinces believe this more than the rest.

A new poll from the Angus Reid Institute has revealed how Canadians feel about the level of racism in Canada.

While the data shows that one-in-three Canadians believe "Canada is a racist country," some people seem to think that the exaggeration of racism is a problem.


Angus Reid


When asked if not seeing racial discrimination where it does really exist or seeing racial discrimination where it really does not exist is the bigger problem, 41% of the population claimed that "exaggerating racism" is actually the bigger problem in Canada.

The majority of surveyed respondents in B.C., Manitoba, Ontario, Quebec, and Atlantic Canada all believed that not seeing racism was the main issue.

Meanwhile, 54% of people in Alberta and 57% of people in Saskatchewan said that the real trouble was seeing racism when it doesn't exist.
