Côte Saint-Luc city council generally meets in public once a month. As was the case last year, Jack Branswell has assigned his first year Concordia journalism students the task of attending two meetings in 2008 in order to file stories. Our meetings are usually covered by two local papers - The Suburban and The West End Chronicle. The audience is not often very large unless there is a pressing issue. It is therefore quite a sight to walk out and see an entire class of journalism students taking notes on everything we say. This is deja vu for me. I attended the Journalism Program of Concordia - actually the joint Communications and Journalism Program - from 1982 to 1985. I think it is great that they are covering our meetings, scrumming us afterward and asking interesting questions. It is interesting to note that two of these students are actually big Canadian television stars - Jake Goldsbie (Toby) and Sarah Barrable-Tishauer (Liberty) star in the hit CTV program Degrassi: The New Generation. They've been on the program for seven years, since the ages of 12. Now they have moved to Montreal in the hopes of pursuing a career in journalism.
