Pardon my French

Canada is a unique country that embraces two official languages, English and French. In Quebec, a province that embraces their French side a little more than their English (that might be a bit of an understatement), they have what I can only describe as a French language version of HGTV called CASA. CASA runs some shows which typically air on HGTV, such as Holmes on Homes and Holmes Makes It Right (see Holmes Le Fait Bien for more information). On February 7 of this year, Mike Holmes attended a home show in Montreal, the ExpoHabitation de Montréal, where he meeted and greeted his fans. CASA TV was also in attendance and took a moment to ask Mike about his book.

I can't understand a word of French, so I used Google translate to interpret the CASA website for me. Below is the "translated" blurb from

Two of the headliners of the chain CASA, Mike Holmes and Karyne Beauregard, were present at the ExpoHabitation show, which was held from 6 to 9 February at Olympic Stadium. Chloé Bergeron went to meet them.

(Apparently "MAKE IT RIGHT" is "MAKE IT RIGHT" in any language, as long as Mike Holmes says it!)
