      Mike Cohen - CTV nuptials: Brian's Wilde about Debra





      Arbec had low-key wedding in Hampstead.

      When local CTV News late night and weekend anchor Debra Arbec next turns
      to Brian Wilde for the sportscast, look for that little glimmer in her eye. You
      see, Debra and Brian are a couple. In fact, we learned that they just got
      married, tying the knot recently at Ephraim Scott Church in Hampstead. It was
      a small affair that was followed by two glorious weeks honeymooning in
      Morocco. "We met here about eight years ago when I started working at
      CFCF," Debra confided. "But, we only started dating five years ago. Really, it
      is wonderful working with Brian. It's easy to be yourself with the one you trust
      the most. Though on occasion I do need to bridle myself from saying, 'Now
      over to you, love, with sports'."
      Boisclair Times: The New York Times carried an article on the PQ leadership
      race last week and frontrunner André Boisclair. "It is well known," wrote
      journalist Clifford Krauss, "that Quebec voters are known for their tolerance.
      They have elected many gay and lesbian candidates and they think that a
      political leader who has not taken marijuana lacks joie de vivre." Krauss goes
      on to say "...nobody was surprised by the fact that André Boisclair, a gay 39-
      year old who vaunts his sexual orientation on talkshows, has become the
      favorite in the race."
      City TV Nabs Montreal Shoot: If you are like most Montreal TV viewers, your
      cable system does not carry Toronto-based CityTV. That means you will miss
      the much anticipated mini-series called Human Trafficking, a good chunk of
      which was shot here last winter. It will air exclusively on CityTV Jan. 2 and 4
      at 9 p.m. The film stars Academy Award winner Mira Sorvino, Emmy Award
      winner Donald Sutherland and Robert Carlyle. I am fortunate to have the VDN
      cable service, far superior to Videotron and with CityTV on its lineup card.
      Harvard and MIT: A hundred graduate and doctorate classmates in
      management, engineering and government policy at Harvard and MIT were in
      Montreal Friday to meet local business leaders. The students represented an
      internationally diverse group from 20 countries. Delegates visited the offices
      of Aeroplan, CAE, Molson, Positron and Cirque du Soleil to discuss business
      and employment opportunities here. Montrealer Steven Fransblow, who is
      attending MIT, was one of the leaders of the mission.
      Montreal's Oscars: The Academy Awards it's not, but ACTRA Montreal will
      add a little glitz to the local scene this Saturday evening Nov. 5. The first ever
      ACTRA Montreal Members' Awards will take place at the Delta Centre-ville,
      honouring local performers for their exceptional performances in English
      language projects produced in this city. Locally, N.D.G's Ellen David (Ciao
      Bella), St. Leonard's Claudia Ferri (Ciao Bella) and Westmount's Jeanne
      Bowser (Fries With That) are nominated in the Outstanding Performance,
      Female in a Film or Television Series. David, whose husband Stéphane
      Demers portrayed Pierre Trudeau in the recent CBC miniseries, is also
      nominated for a Prix Gemeaux for best performance by an actress in a
      supporting role in a comedy.
      COHEN CHATTER: Montreal tax attorney David Lisbona was recently
      installed as president of the Generations Foundation, an organization
      committed to feeding hungry children in Montreal. Lisbona recently stepped
      down as president of Le Mercaz, the organization which collected food and
      clothing now part of the MADA Community Centre …Singer Lionel Ritchie
      was spotted at Time Supper Club last week…Prime Minister Paul Martin's
      limo and RCMP corps were spotted last week outside the Westmount home of
      Premier Jean Charest as the two men sipped tea and concluded the $960
      million daycare deal.

      By Mike Cohen, The Suburban


      Gynecological cancers are the fourth most common cancers affecting women
      today. Prevention, they say, is better than a cure. On Monday, Nov. 7, at 7
      p.m., the YM-YWHA will be holding a seminar by Dr. Lucy Gilbert, chief of the
      division of gynecological oncology at McGill University Health Centre, director
      of the women's health and menopause clinic and director of the gynecological
      oncology fellowships program at McGill University. Gilbert will attempt to
      dispel common misconceptions, outline new treatment options, discuss what
      women can do to reduce the risk of gynecological cancer and what early
      symptoms to watch for. For more information, call Davina Shapiro, 737-6551,
      ext 237.
      IBD GALA: The Crohn's and Colitis Foundation of Canada will be holding its

      Peel Street). This year's theme is A Night In Brazil. Crohn's and ulcerative
      colitis are two forms of inflammatory bowel disease with no known cause or
      cure. The gala will feature cocktails, dinner, dancing and a show, as well as a
      silent auction. E-mail: lbaudart@... for details.
      EMUNAH TO HONOUR STERMER: On Saturday, Nov. 5, Emunah Women of
      Montreal will honour Sima Stermer Blitzer and David Blitzer at a gala dinner
      at the Gelber Conference Centre, paying tribute to them for their many years
      of dedication to the organization. It will also be an opportunity to recognize the
      Stermer family's survival during the Holocaust. Justice Minister Irwin Cotler
      will be the guest speaker. Funds raised from this dinner will support the Crisis
      Centre for children at risk at the Neve Michael Children's Village in Israel. On
      the local scene, Emunah is involved in an annual program collecting and
      preparing gift packages for residents of Auberge Shalom, a shelter for women
      who are victims of domestic violence.
      ROCK 'N' ROLL: The upcoming Rock 'N' Roll Flashback concert supports
      Jewish Women International Canada's (JWIC) programs of sheltered
      apartments in Montreal and a centre for troubled youth in Israel. The concert
      will be held Saturday, Nov. 19 (8 p.m.) at the Beth Zion Synagogue auditorium
      in Côte St. Luc. "Tribute Artists" of the Star Image Group will perform songs
      from the "Rocking '50s, '60s, '70s & '80s." Refreshments will be served and a
      cash bar is available. E-mail Susan Miller at sue@....

      Nature Fair this Saturday and Sunday (10 a.m. to 5 p.m.) at Westmount High

      event will feature live birds such as hawks, owls and waterfowl, nature,
      conservation and environmental groups, nature-related craftspeople, wood
      carvers and artists, nature tour operators and government agencies. You'll be

      A Cantor's Tale comes to Westmount's Congregation Shaar Hashomayim,
      Monday, Nov. 7. A presentation of the Chazzan Nathan Mendelson Music

      Jerusalem… Congregation Beth-El (1000 Lucerne Road) in T.M.R. will hold
