World Record for Antoine Cantin

Clarence-Rockland has its world record holder. In speedcubingcompetition, no one has ever solved a Rubik's cube one-handed faster than Antoine Cantin. The 15 year old cuber did the exploit in only 12.56 second time, to obtain the record this past weekend in Toronto.

That record represents the average of the 5 scrambles Antoine had to solve during that round: out the 5 solves, the fastest and slowest times are ignored; the average of the remaining three is the official time: 12.56 seconds. His fastest time recorded in that round was10.63 seconds. For almost a year, Antoine has been in the top-5 in the world for that event. He became second in the world last November, and then went down to third when Feliks Zemdegs beat his time. Saturday, Antoine beat the world record by more than a tenth of a second.

That world record was achieved during the Toronto Open Spring 2014 speedcubing competition, on April 26, 2014. The competition held 8 different events and more than a hundred competitors. Antoine won a top-3 certificate in each of the eight events.

Gabrielle Goulet’s performance allows Bourget school to raise money

It is with great pleasure that the Sacré-Coeur daycare collaborated with the Sacré-Coeur elementary school of Bourget to put together a benefit concert for the embellishment of the school walls. Having a great complicity with the school, it was a real pleasure joining forces to organize the show.

On Saturday May 12th, waiting with impatience for the artist of the hour, more than 300 people went to see Gabrielle Goulet at the Bourget community center.  The first act allowed us to discover Akeem Ouellete, a young singer with catchy melodies.

Equipped with posters and t-shirts of their favorite artist, Gabrielle Goulet's admirers were not disappointed. During an hour and a half, she delivered an energy filled performance and lively songs.  After the show, Gabrielle signed autographs and took pictures with her many fans that left the show astonished.

In fact, not only did Sacré Coeur School raise enough money for a mural, it also allowed the community to discover new talent and encourage local artists!
