The Montreal Gazette has introduced two new websites: a redesigned site at WestIslandGazette.com and a new site at OffIslandGazette.com. The site are intended to serve the West Island and Off Island regions of the Montreal area with local news coverage. "At The Gazette, we've been covering the West Island and Off Island communities for years, but it was time for an expansion and separate identity," said Alan Allnutt, publisher and editor-in-chief of The Gazette. "We want to cover relevant stories for these two communities, but more importantly provide a central point where they can exchange information and ideas."
Visa Canada has launched a new online game called Peter Pig's Money Counter. The educational game is intended to teach children between the ages of four and seven the value of money. Players attempt to increase their bank balances by completing counting and sorting challenges. The game is located at <http://www.practicalmoneyskills.ca/peterpigs>. "Peter Pig's Money Counter is another example of using teachable moments to help young Canadians learn about the value of money in a fun and interactive way," said Melissa Cassar, head of corporate and public affairs at Visa Canada. "It is the latest in a series of interactive, online games we have launched in Canada with a view to engaging Canada's youth and providing them with the basics of financial management."
