That is, Grade 1 is too early for the children of the poor.The children of the affluent are apparently ready as soon as their parents can find those English-speaking nannies.

MONTREAL - Guy Bouthillier, ... [cached]

MONTREAL - Guy Bouthillier, a past Montreal president of the St. Jean Baptiste Society, is a student of Jewish mysticism.

Guy Bouthillier, centre, past president of the St. Jean Baptiste Society, converses with his teacher Rabbi Yossi Shanowitz, left, and friend Aaron Pollack.
The obvious answer is outreach, to break down barriers, to discover a new world, and when you discover a new world, you are newborn," Bouthillier said.
For a year, Bouthillier has been attending classes Wednesdays at 8:30 a.m., studying Tanya, the fundamental work of Chabad philosophy, with Rabbi Yossi Shanowitz, the centre's director.
But Bouthillier has plunged into it with enthusiasm.
Bouthillier was the guest speaker at Chabad of Westmount's 10th anniversary celebration, a cocktail reception in honour of its main benefactor and landlord, Murray Dalfen.
Bouthillier, who was president of the sovereignist, ultra-nationalist St. Jean Baptiste Society (SJBS) from 1997 to 2003, was introduced to the Chabad centre by Aaron Pollack, a friend of his since they were together at McGill University law school 50 years ago.
Bouthillier affectionately calls him "Aaronchik."
During his presidency, Bouthillier made a historic overture to ethnic groups, but especially the Jewish community, for reconciliation. He initiated at an annual commemoration on June 5, the date the legislature of Lower Canada passed a law in 1832 confirming full political rights for Jews.
This happened 25 years before a similar law was enacted by the British Parliament.
He noted that it was Louis-Joseph Papineau, who two years later founded the SJBS, and the leader of the reformist Patriote movement, which was behind the 1837-38 rebellion, that spearheaded this law.
Bouthillier also recalled that Canadian Jewish Congress was founded on March 18, 1919, at a meeting at the Monument National, the headquarters of the SJBS. For many years after, the Monument National would be the home of Yiddish theatre in Montreal.
Bouthillier frequently attended Jewish community events such as Yom Hashoah and has continued to do so since stepping down from office.
While he has had considerable social and political interaction with Jews over the years, the Chabad classes have been an introduction to their religious foundation. "It's at the heart of what makes a Jew a Jew."
Bouthillier said he grew up well grounded in Roman Catholicism, through his classical college education, but broke with organized religion when he was 18 or 20. However, he never abandoned his belief in God, whom he refers to as HaShem.
Bouthillier said "a special spiritual chemistry" has formed between himself and his classmates and the rabbi from sitting around the table discussing deep concepts.
"Oh, that's for Bouthillier when he comes," he was told. The rabbi remonstrated that he had been a faithful servant of God all his life.
"The answer was, 'When you spoke at the synagogue, everybody fell asleep. When Bouthillier speaks, everybody starts praying."
