The event was organized by the Seigneurie of the Isle of Orleans in collaboration with JoseyArsenault, FM 93 host and co-author of the book Lose Weight by Eating Fat. The frenzy of the day was matched only by its crowd success. In total, more than 1,100 people took part in this first edition of Keto Fest.

Ketogenic diet "Eating Bacon and Lose Weight" is the promotional image often used to characterize ketogenic diet in the media. Although bacon is actually considered to be ketogenic, it is nevertheless a hyper simplification. Indeed, the ketogenic diet does not make MINIMALIST: WHEN LESS, IT'S MORE A PARTY FOR THE 100 YEARS OF PAULINE LAPOINTE GAGNON © Minimalist © Nicole Bédard © Sylvain Delisle RETENTING SUCCESS FOR THE 1st KETO FEST


Around the Island • August 2018 2 NEWS Following the success of the 1st KETO FEST, a true apology for smoked bacon, it aims to eliminate almost all carbohydrates and replace them with good fats.

Thus deprived of glucids, the human body has no choice but to turn to lipids as a source of energy. Fats, once transformed into ketone bodies, feed the brain and provide energy to the muscles. More concretely, the diet cuts all sugars and foods rich in carbohydrates: fruits, cereals and legumes. The benefits Since the early 1900s, the ketogenic diet is used to counteract the effects of epilepsy in children 1 stes On the cover: Mary Plante, Executive Director of the Seigneurie of Orleans Island, and FM 93 host Josey Arsenault, were the organizers of this first Quebec ketogenic food festival.

for whom traditional medication is enough to control seizures. In two-thirds of these patients, convulsions subside or disappear completely. As for other uses, the Quebec College of Physicians is very circumspect and is "comfortable with the fact that doctors talk about keto- and low-carbohydrate diets with their patients, if they have the required skills ". The professional order specifies that it does not intend to make a public pronouncement on the merits of the approach. There are, however, many who adhere to this diet to extol the benefits1.

Several physicians have also co-signed a letter that, among other things, reports on their clinical observations: "blood glucose values ​​are falling, blood pressure is falling, chronic pain is decreasing or disappearing, the cholesterol balance is improving, Inflammatory markers improve, the energy reported by our patients increases, weight decreases, sleep improves, irritable bowel symptoms disappear, etc. "First Quebec festival If several festivals of this kind are held in the United States, August 4th was a first in Quebec.

Two passionate women are behind this initiative: Mary Plante, Executive Director of the Seigneurie of Orleans Island, and Josey Arsenault, Radio Host. The programming reflected their common desire to make Keto Fest a popular success while being informative. Thus the conferences succeeded the musical performances offered by the Check Engine group. On the site, numerous kiosks had been set up to allow producers and processors to make their products known to visitors. If ticket pre-sale ensured the success of the event, it was the day that the event turned into a real success.

It was therefore in a festive atmosphere and with a crowd of visitors filling the expectations that this first Keto Fest took place on the island of Orleans.

$ 411,000 FOR THE HOLY FAMILY RINK Sylvain DELISLE Financial assistance of more than $ 411,000 has been awarded by the Quebec government for the addition of a roof to the multi-purpose ice rink. tifunctional of Sainte-Famille-de l'Île-d'Orléans. This valuable assistance will allow the municipality to finalize its project started in 2016. The grant will be used primarily to build a roof to cover the rink to maximize its use, facilitate the maintenance of the ice and extend the season. skating. The roof will also ensure the holding of outdoor events in all seasons, sheltered from the weather.

DEMONSTRATION OF A KARTUS CHAIR AT THE MARITIME PARK Sylvain DELISLE As part of theAlaviva- Kartus tour, the Maritime Park hosted this summer a demonstration of the Kartus chair. This new-style chair allows people with reduced mobility and seniors to team up with a runner to access parks, large green spaces, but also to participate in running events. TheAlaviva- Kartus tour was born from the meeting of two Quebec companies. On the one hand, there is Alaviva, which promotes an active lifestyle and helps to revitalize the lives of seniors by offering businesses a new gateway to reach 55 and over.

On the other hand, there is Kartus, creator of the chair in question. Sharing similar objectives, the association of the two companies in this project was therefore most natural. Their stop at the Marine Park was part of a major tour begun at the beginning of the summer. With the aim of discovering the Kartus chair, the dynamic duo intended to visit some thirty residences for seniors. . From g. to dr.

© Courtesy TRIBUTE TO MAJOR CLÉMENT GOSSELIN 1747-1816 Sylvain DELISLE On July 21st, the US Consul General in Québec, Mrs.Allison Areias-Vogel, was present at the Parc des Ancestors, Sainte-Famille, to inaugurate a commemorative plaque in honor of Major Clément Gosselin.

Major Gosselin was born on June 12, 1747 in the parish of Sainte-Famille. In 1759, at the age of 12, he was called to fight on the Plains of Abraham. He is taken prisoner and brought to England. This first war marked him forever. Clement Gosselin will have only one idea in mind: to drive the English out of his country. The American war of independence will provide him with an opportunity to ally himself against the Americans against the British. At the age of 28, he will be considered a rebel in Canada and will be wanted by the authorities. In the autumn of 1777 he was captured by the British and released in the spring of 1778.

He later served in the Congress troops, becoming a militia captain before being promoted to major. He will participate in the Battle of Yorktown. This battle was a turning point in the independence of the thirteen colonies. Major Clément Gosselin has left his mark in history. He had a special connection with the first President of the United States, George Washington, and earned the title of Knight of the Order of Cincinnati. The plaque unveiled this summer highlights the support of Major Clément Gosselin to the American people in their quest for independence. This tribute was made possible thanks to the collaboration of the Gosselin Family Association, the Order Lafayette Canada, Quebec Section, the Association Québec-France, the Municipality of Sainte-Famille-de-l'Île-d Orleans and the François-Lamy Foundation.

DES FUTES 418 828-2287 & – Distinguished Caterer – PUBLIC MARKET IN SAINT-LAURENT Lucie LAPOINTE On the initiative of the Municipality of Saint-Laurent, on Saturday, August 11, from 9 At 1 pm, a public market was held in the church square.

At the various stalls, producers could meet the municipality's list of seasonal fruits, strawberries, raspberries and blueberries, a wide variety of fresh vegetables, eggs and processed local products, including jams, jellies, canned vegetables, rillettes of guinea fowl, bread, nougat and various handicrafts. To enhance this beautiful morning, an accordionist played the tunes of the French repertoire adding to the charm of the activity and creating an atmosphere of conviviality.

In addition to promoting the purchase of local products, this event allowed the meeting between the producer, the craftsman and the consumer; but it has also provided a place of exchange between citizens, weaving their bonds which favor the feeling of belonging to their environment.

There is no doubt that organizing a public contract requires a good deal of planning and work, but let's hope that it does not remain a single event. © Sylvain Delisle BABILL'ART HEART OF ROCKEUSE AT SPACE FÉLIX-LECLERC Marie BLOUIN Like many other people, I thought Mara Tremblay was a country singer. On Thursday, July 19, at Espace Félix-Leclerc, I made a pleasant discovery when I saw Mara performing rock. Mara is a rocker proud to be. She does not hide it and said it several times during the evening. And this style suits him well.

Wearing her little black hat, a leopard-print skirt and black booties, she looked like a kid on the stage even though she's got a 30-year career behind her. From the outset, the author-composer-performer conquered her audience by interpreting one of her great successes, Your body to mine, with incredible energy. She is a great musician who knows how to play both guitar and violin. She was surrounded by excellent musicians and the complicity was palpable between them. And his sense of humor brings a special touch to his performance. The public was charmed and expressed his enthusiasm.

We made the tour of his greatest hits through his seven albums. Mara was moved to be at Espace Félix-Leclerc. This place reminded her of the Félix-Leclerc prize she had won in 1999 which had led her to travel to Europe, and that she would not forget about it, she said. As one journalist put it so well in speaking of his musical performance, the little girl from Baie-Comeau really "has her feet on the ground and her head in the stars": that's how it feels to see her give his show. Her languorous voice transports us to another world and her melodies reflect the free woman she is.

These sweets, as they were called, were intended to hunt birds eager to feed on the new seeds. It is by recalling these curious characters that the artists and craftsmen of the Regroupement BLEU of Saint-Jean and Saint-François decided, in the context of the small salons BLEU, to create an event around the theme scarecrow, allowing the imagination and creativity of its members to express themselves freely.

This event will take place on the grounds of the Mauvide-Genest Manor from September 1 to 3, 2018. The formula of the small salons BLEU stems from the idea of ​​organizing an annual BLEU show inspired by 19th-century French Artists' Exhibitions. with the aim of making known the artists and the craftsmen of the Regroupement BLEU on the island of Orleans and outside. In order to realize such a fair, the Regroupement decided to proceed in stages by creating this summer small BLUE salons in different villages of the island.


Around the Island • August 2018 5 BABILL'ART 30 YEARS AGO, THE GREAT FELIX WENT OUT! Marie BLOUIN 30 years ago, on August 8, 1988, Quebeckers were in mourning. They had just lost the great Félix Leclerc, poet, singer, and citizen engaged. He was 74 years old. He had suffered a heart attack while asleep at his home in Saint-Pierre-de-l'Île-d'Orléans, a place he was particularly fond of. He lived there for about 30 years. As Gilles Vigneault said when he learned of his death, Félix Leclerc helped restore hope and pride to the people of Quebec.

His best tribute is still made today by his daughter, Nathalie, who founded the Espace Félix-Leclerc in her honor in the 80's to keep alive the memory of her father. She succeeds in perpetuating her work for our greatest happiness through the permanent exhibition, the writings of Félix and the shows offered at the box at the same place. A special tribute was made on August 8 at Espace Félix-Leclerc: during a show entitled "À la rencontre de Félix", the Quatuor des Moulins made a return on the songs and poems of Félix Leclerc.

For my part, I remember the singing voice of Felix ordering his bread on the phone at my father's bakery and his warm welcome when we were sometimes going to deliver fresh bread to him at home. Surrounded by his two dogs, smiling, he has managed to give his most recent book to my father, delighted to receive such a beautiful gift. My father admired him. Félix Leclerc loved Île d'Orléans and the people who lived there. Some of his books bear the trace. And today, I am proud to say that I had the chance to meet this great person in my life as a teenager.

THE EXHIBITION OF SENSORS OF MYSTERIES RETURN TO SAINT-FRANÇOIS Sylvain DELISLE In 2016, BLEU, the Regroupement des artistes et arti- sans d'art on the Île d'Orléans, inaugurated the exhibition Mystery Sensors. In the summer of 2016, this traveling temporary exhibition took place in a few places. The Municipality of Saint-François having acquired it, it has recently been permanently installed on the path leading from the Town Hall of Saint-François-de-l'Île-d'Orléans to the Parc de la Tour- du-Nordet.Alliant texts and works of art, the artists who collaborated there inspired the tales and legends of the island of Orleans.

Bordering proudly the new path, the exhibition will delight the many visitors passing through the park of Tour-du-Nord while highlighting the artistic heritage of Orleans. These small BLUE salons will allow artists and craftsmen of the island to express themselves through a variety of means such as painting, watercolor, sculpture, ceramics, photography, textile works and art. literature. They want to arouse the curiosity of the public and also of art lovers, collectors, journalists and critics. Finally, these small BLUE salons will also contribute to the cultural influence of the island of Orleans.

We hope to welcome you in large numbers.

POUX DE TÊTE Chantal Dumont, pharmacienne, est là pour vous conseiller pour tous vos besoins en matière de santé. Les camps sont finis, c’est la rentrée!

La période la plus propice pour la transmission de ces petits parasites qui apprécient particulièrement la tête des enfants de 3 à 11 ans. Les poux ne sont pas un signe de malpropreté et tous les enfants peuvent en attraper. Ils ne sont pas dangereux, ne trans- mettent pas de maladies et ne vivent pas sur les animaux domestiques. Les poux se retrouvent à la racine des cheveux, car ils se nourrissent de sang. C’est là aussi que les femelles vont pondre leurs œufs, qu’on appelle «lentes». Ces dernières sont de cou- leur blanchâtre et bien accrochées à la base des cheveux, donc plutôt dif- ficiles à enlever, contrairement aux pellicules.

Les poux se transmettent très facile- ment au contact des cheveux d’une personne infectée, mais aussi par le partage d’objets tels que chapeaux, peignes, taies d’oreiller. Il faut donc éviter de se coller la tête contre celle des autres et de partager les chapeaux, peignes, barrettes et élastiques. Gar- der les cheveux attachés est aussi un bon moyen de prévention. Il n’existe pas de traitement préventif contre les poux, il faut seulement dé- pister rapidement leur présence afin d’éviter la propagation. Une fois par semaine, au début de l’année scolaire ou au retour du camp, examinez sous une lumière forte la tête de votre en- fant avec un peigne fin.

Vérifiez sur- tout derrière les oreilles et près de la nuque. Si l’on vous avise qu’il y a des cas dans l’entourage, il est préférable de vérifier les cheveux de votre en- fant quotidiennement.

Si, malgré tout, votre enfant attrape des poux, il est important de le traiter rapidement. Plusieurs produits sont disponibles en pharmacie et votre pharmacien pourra vous prescrire le traitement approprié qui sera couvert par votre assurance. En général, ces traitements doivent être répétés une à deux fois, selon le cas. De plus, il faut aussi retirer chaque lente des cheveux avec un peigne conçu à cet effet. Pour éviter la réinfestation, vous de- vez laver à l’eau chaude et sécher durant 20 minutes, à air chaud, les vêtements, la literie, les serviettes qui ont été en contact avec la personne.

Ce qui ne peut être lavé doit être en- treposé pendant deux semaines dans des sacs de plastique ou nettoyé à sec. Il faut aussi passer l’aspirateur sur le plancher, le divan et les sièges de la voiture. Beaucoup de travail quoi!


Autour de l’Île • Août 2018 10 PORTRAIT UNE FÊTE POUR LES 100 ANS DE PAULINE LAPOINTE GAGNON Nicole BÉDARD «100 ans, ce n’est pas rare aujourd’hui», disait madame Pauline Lapointe Gagnon, alors qu’on s’apprêtait à souligner son anniversaire de naissance. Pour cette occasion spéciale, le dimanche 29 juillet 2018, il y avait de la joie dans l’air à la résidence du Centre d’hébergementAlphonse-Bonenfant, à Saint-Pierre-de-l’Île-d’Orléans où elle réside. À leur arrivée, les membres de sa famille et des amis l’entouraient de leurs marques d’af- fection. Son époux, décédé il y quatre ans, s’appelait Gérard Gagnon.

Ils ont eu quatre filles et trois garçons, cinq petites-filles et six arrières-petits-en- fants. Ils ont exploité une ferme avec vaches laitières à Saint-Pierre.Avant son mariage, elle a enseigné à Saint- François et à Saint-Pierre, pendant sept ans.

Madame Pauline a tenu son jour- nal tout au long de sa vie; nous pou- vons en goûter ici quelques extraits. Il représente un trésor d’écriture qui permet à la famille de retracer des événements et des réflexions sur le vécu de leur mère et sur leur his- toire. Sa fille Gisèle en avait choisi quelques bribes dans le but de les partager pendant le repas. À propos de sa venue au monde, le 29 juil- let 1918, à Montréal, elle racon- tait: «Ne pensez pas que les autres frères et sœurs attendaient cette nais- sance.Vous comprenez bien qu’en ce temps-là, les jupes larges et longues de maman Maria avaient caché le mystère.» En 1931, elle a dû quitter sa ville natale.

«Voilà le départ pour l’île d’Orléans; on a fait le trajet en bateau. C’était une autre adap- tation; ma mère a pleuré souvent, souvent. J’étais en 5e année, je ve- nais d’avoir 13 ans en juillet.» On constate qu’elle a su apprécier sa vie sur l’île, car plus tard, en 2001, elle l’exprime ainsi: «En regardant le soleil baisser, j’admirais les cou- leurs diverses qui passaient devant moi, on aurait dit un ruban multi- colore qui se déroulait inconsciem- ment. Moi, je me disais, il y a tant de personnes qui ne perçoivent pas les beautés de la nature. Je pense à bien des choses, je suis en santé.» Et en 2003, elle ajoute: «J’aime être ici, j’ai tant de gens qui me tiennent à cœur: mon mari, mes enfants, mes petites-filles, mon arrière-petit-fils.

Tout, tout.» Elle écrivait non seulement ses propos à elle, mais aussi ceux de son mari en spécifiant bien que c’est «Gérard qui se raconte». On y ap- prend, par exemple, qu’en 1942, alors que le printemps avait été froid, on avait dû démolir la vieille grange pour en construire une neuve, que les vaches avaient dû rester dehors et que deux d’entre elles sont mortes après leur vêlage, à cause du froid. Parfois, il lui arrivait de souligner des événements qui font partie de la petite histoire de l’île, dont, entre autres, les noms de ceux qui ont eu leur première automobile à Saint- Pierre.

Une invitation à prendre le temps Et ces mots nous disent qu’elle n’a pas oublié d’apprécier tout ce temps qu’il lui a été donné de vivre: «Prendre le temps de regarder voler un oiseau, prendre le temps de sou- rire à un inconnu, prendre le temps de voir pousser les arbres, les fleurs, le jardin. Prendre le temps d’aider quelqu’un, prendre le temps d’écou- ter l’autre. Prendre le temps de voir le soleil, la lune et les étoiles, prendre le temps de dire merci et s’il vous plaît. Prendre le temps de parler à Dieu.» En ce jour de ses 100 ans, on lui demandait: «Qu’est-ce que vous avez aimé le plus dans votre vie?» Elle répondit: «Les bébés, nourrir mes enfants.» À notre tour de lui dire merci d’avoir bien voulu partager des secrets de son cœur et ces quelques moments de sa fête si bien prépa- rée par ceux qu’elle aime.

Nous lui disons merci pour toutes ces années consacrées à sa famille, aux enfants à qui elle a enseigné et à ceux qui ont bénéficié de ses services comme bénévole au Comptoir de partage. Pauline Lapointe Gagnon, de Saint-Pierre, a eu 100 ans en juillet dernier. © Nicole Bédard Madame Pauline a tenu son journal tout au long de sa vie; nous pouvons en goûter ici quelques extraits.
