Le Monde, Money, Haiti.

January 8th, 2012 by Martine St-Victor

Haiti is flawed and there are many injustices that must be denounced. Many things have to change, I know this. Condescendence, however is also a flaw that helas, too often rears its ugly head whenever the West talks about Haiti. That too, must change.

Pierre Nadeau

June 27th, 2011 by Martine St-Victor

There are journalists and then there’s Pierre Nadeau. A reference in the world of media not only in his native Québec but also beyond its borders, Pierre Nadeau got all the exclusive interviews and spoke the language of Molière in a way that is today too seldom heard. The man who had the looks of [...]

I heart Haiti blue

Already One Year.

January 10th, 2011 by Martine St-Victor

I wanted to write something deep and meaningful on this one-year anniversary.  But the images of despair I see in the media drown my words. I’m still heartbroken with a sense of powerlessness. I’m in dismay at the millions of dollars that have been sent by generous citizens of the world and that have yet [...]

The Soundtrack Of My Year.

December 25th, 2010 by Martine St-Victor

Music is my life despite the facts I can’t carry a tune, have little rhythm and make no loving from it. Still, from the moment I open my eyes, to the moment I close them at night, music is a constant. This year, my life was dominated by Haiti, by deadlines and by new and not so new music. Here’s the soundtrack of my 2010 life.

The Haitian Citizen: My Person Of The Year

December 14th, 2010 by Martine St-Victor

The title should be bestowed on the Haitian Citizen. For sentimental reasons, of course, but also because I don’t remember a community not at war, being put through the ringer so much in such a short time. The Haitian Citizen has been failed by Mother Nature, by science and by Human kind camouflaged in greedy political administrators and yet, he is still standing.

Ma réponse à l’ article du journal La Presse. Pour mon papa, pour mon frère et pour Tristan.

November 24th, 2010 by Martine St-Victor

Il y a plus d’une semaine, le journal La Presse publiait un article intitulé « Le fléau caché » sur la violence conjugale en Haïti.

La photo a dérangée plusieurs lecteurs, toutes origines confondues. Moi, c’est l’article que j’ai trouvé dérangeant. J’ai écrit à La Presse. Mon texte n’a pas été publié (comme les 84 autres lettres reçues au journal, d’ailleurs). La voici.

Michelle & Michel

November 19th, 2010 by Martine St-Victor

Martelly is close to the people. He looks people in the eyes, asks for their first name & actually remembers the names once the cameras stop rolling. Bachelet & him have that in common.

Wyclef For President? I’d rather not.

July 26th, 2010 by Martine St-Victor

Photo by AfricaHit.com What does it take to run a country? A Grammy? A mobile-phone commercial? The ability to create incredible guitar riffs? If so then all these rumors about Wyclef Jean running for President of Haïti may not be that crazy. Already fuelling debates online, on talk radio & at social gatherings, the news [...]

World Cup in Haiti: "Why Do We Love Brazil? We Don’t Know Why, But We Love Brazil!" *

June 29th, 2010 by Martine St-Victor

By guest blogger Jean-Cyril Pressoir Brazil breezed through their World Cup round of 16, hammering Chile 3-0 for their fourth consecutive win in “South Africa 2010″. Just like they did at the end of the three previous Brazil matches, Haitians took to the streets, Port-au-Prince suddenly looked like Rio and rum flowed. Thinking as far [...]

PR & Fashion For A Purpose.

February 6th, 2010 by Martine St-Victor

Being a publicist is great. You get instant gratification by seeing your clients’ names in the papers and their faces on television. Lasting gratification comes from the people you meet in the process and who remain in your life. Still, in times like these, in the aftermath of Haiti’s earthquake, you feel helpless and wish [...]

Bleeding Blue & Red in Montréal.

January 18th, 2010 by Martine St-Victor

It’s been 5 days since the earth has rocked my ancestors’ land. Far away, in the Maple Leaf, I feel helpless, restless but also hopeful because I know that like before, Haiti will rise from its ashes. Over 40 years ago, my parents left this Pearl of the Antilles to start their young lives in [...]
