Canadian Museum of History to launch 4K technology

Movie theatre at Gatineau museum one of only four in Canada with a 4K projector.

The Canadian Museum of History is adapting to new technology with the launch of a 4K digital laser projector in its theatre before the end of March.

After being associated with IMAX for more than 25 years, the Gatineau museum said it acquired the new technology from Barco — a Belgium based technology company.

According to the museum, the laser projector provides sharper images and brighter colours compared to the current projectors.

With the new addition to the cinema, the museum’s cinema becomes one of only four in Canada to possess 4K technology, according to the museum.

“We are excited to be able to offer this new technology and high-quality viewing experience to our visitors,” said Michèle Canto, the museum’s director of marketing and business operations in a press release on Monday.

The museum’s IMAX Theatre will be renamed CINÉ+ with the change. Viewers will still be able view older films in the museum’s inventory, along with a greater choice of 2D and 3D productions.

Canada is making a national music playlist. What songs should be included?


To celebrate Canada’s 150th birthday in 2017, the Canadian federal government plans to spend $17.5m on local community projects and a national musical “soundtrack”.

The plan was announced by Canadian heritage minister Mélanie Joly at Toronto’s Daniels Spectrum Theatre on Monday. She spoke in front of a string orchestra on Monday morning who later played Drake’s Know Yourself – perhaps a hint of its place on the country’s definitive song list?

Of the funding, approximately $7.5m will go to the Toronto Symphony Orchestra and be used to fund “the Canada 150 musical mosaic”, a soundtrack created with the Polaris Music Prize that will feature over 36 orchestras from across the country and showcase work of Canadian musicians.

If Canada is going to compile a list of songs identifying it to the world, there are plenty of contenders! CDN Movement what songs do you think should make the cut?

The Poutine Tornado (Recipe)

Created by Josh Elkin – Epic Meal Time


Here’s what you need:

  • A Deep Fryer
  • A Metal Spoon
  • 1 large russet potato
  • 1 cup of Quebec cheese curds
  • 1 cup of brown gravy of your choice
  • Deep frying oil

Step 1:
Slice the top and bottom end of the potato. Make sure it’s as even as possible so the potato can stand upright on its own.

Step 2:
Start to scoop out a hole in the center of the smaller end of the potato. Continue to dig with the spoon in a circular motion until you are about 1/2 an inch from the other end of the potato (the bottom)

Step 3:
Using a paring knife, trace a spiral on the outside of the potato. Cut out the spiral exposing the flesh of the potato. At this point you can see the shape of the tornado coming together.

Step 4:
Cut through the potato on two sides of the spiral. You want to cut into the hole you made earlier making sure not to cut too far on either side of the spiral in order to avoid the whole thing collapsing.

Step 5:
Heat your cooking oil to 300 degrees F. Fry the potato for about 4 minutes. Take it out and increase the heat to 400 degrees F. Fry the potato again for 3 minutes.

Step 6:
Fill the hole of the Potato with the cheese curds, then with the gravy until it all starts pouring out the sides of the tornado.

Step 7

Jonathan Emile – Movement Music

CDN Movement this is an artist worth taking intrest in, following the success of his debut album ‘The Lover/Fighter Document LP‘, The Montreal native Jonathan Emile is back with the newest visual from the project, ‘Movement Music‘.

Directed and shot by King Richard, the video sees Jonathan explore and embrace two major segments of the 20th Century; a poignant reminder of the plight of the African diaspora in North America (through the Civil Rights movement until the present day) and the Cuban revolutionaries fighting to free their country from their oppressive government.

Focusing on the light and the dark sides of both himself and history, the juxtaposition of the modern day black man in America with the Latin American revolutionary in the basement make for a powerful statement. This is such an impressive concept that you rarely see in today music indusrty, True Canadian Movement we Salute!

Watch the video via YouTube below.

The Lover/Fighter Document LP‘ features guest appearances from the likes of Buckshot, Murs and Kendrick Lamar, with production courtesy of Aphyliated, Lo-Go, MIYEKOW and Jonathan himself.

CDN You can now purchase ‘The Lover/Fighter Document LP’ on iTunes and Bandcamp, and stream on Spotify. Trust me when I say it’s  a Movement you should consider taking in.

Move to Canada If Donald Trump Wins?

CDN Movement we may have some new friends locating into our country if Donald Trump wins the American Presidential Election. Many Americans are seriously thinking about leaving their country if this play out in Trump’s favor.

Rob Calabrese sees this as an opportunity to solve Cape Breton Island’s population crisis, Calabrese works at 101.9 The Giant, a pop radio station on Cape Breton Island, a rocky outcrop at the northern tip of Nova Scotia. The island’s population was about 136,000 in 2011, but that number has been steadily plummeting, in part because the island’s steel mill closed a decade and a half ago. “Our population is aging, and it’s shrinking by about 1,000 people every year,” Calabrese tells Rolling Stone. “It’s projected to do that for the next 20 years unless it can get turned around.”

By his count, there were more than 2,000 inquiries in the first three days. “I’d say about 90 percent of them are genuine inquiries about making a life in Cape Breton, and a lot of them say regardless of who wins.” Most were anxious to escape Trump, but several, he says, feared a Hillary Clinton presidency.
