Quebec influencer and entrepreneur Élisabeth Rioux shared a peek of her family's new home in Quebec in a December 7 YouTube video.
For those who don't know, Rioux and her partner, Christo, have been searching for a house in Quebec after nixing — or at least postponing — plans to move full-time to Costa Rica.
Until now, she has offered glimpses of her search for a new property with her followers. Narcity and MTL Blog confirmed that she visited this $1.2 million modern cottage-style house in Saint-Sauveur after a photo of a sitting room appeared in her Instagram story.
But, according to Narcity Québec, Rioux and Christo ultimately settled on a home in Blainville, five minutes from a warehouse used by Hoaka, Rioux's swimwear company. She announced in the December 7 video that they had closed on the property and were in the process of conducting inspections.
The 28-year-old man is accused of events occurring between November 2019 and September 2020, from the first trimester of Rioux's pregnancy until a few months after the birth of her child.
McCormick was present at the hearing via video conference. During the hearing, a summary of facts detailed the several violent incidents for which he was charged.
The accused admitted to having strangled Rioux by pinning her against the wall and lifting her off the ground while she had her child in her arms.
McCormick further admitted to threatening Rioux's life by saying, "I'm going to kill you," "I'm going to burn you alive," and "I'm going to shoot you in the head." He also said he called Rioux a "bad mother" and "crazy."
Finally, McCormick pleaded guilty to mischief involving property valued at less than $5,000, which, according to Narcity, included a wall, a lamp and a cellphone.
The accused made his guilty plea following an agreement between the two parties. The Crown, therefore, agreed to drop the charges on the other four counts he was facing of forcible confinement, harassment, assault with a weapon or causing bodily harm, and harassing communications.
Standing on Chemin des Méandres, this home built in 2006 draws its charm from its spacious but still cozy and warm spaces thanks to the surrounding greenery, the neutral tones of the interior and the backyard that is worthy of a spa.
We know Rioux visit this home because she shared this room on Instagram a while back and it's still there in the highlight titled House visits. Also, because the realtor Carolane Piché confirmed it with MTL Blog. Piché also confirmed the house has been sold, but could not say who purchased it.
One of the rooms that is absolutely breathtaking is definitely the family room, which is directly at the entrance and which lets the light penetrate thanks to the abundant fenestration.
The backyard of the house, which is included in the 53,839 square foot lot, is perfect for relaxing and entertaining. There is a large pool, spa, sauna and relaxation areas, all in an intimate setting since the house is close to a beautiful wooded area.
Thousands of people took to the streets to protest against Quebec's vaccine passport this weekend and during this same time, the government came out with a new advertisement on the subject, which resulted in all kinds of different reactions on social networks.
The video, which quickly went viral, shows two young adults who meet at the Riverside bar in Montreal. At the entrance, the woman who hasn't been vaccinated gets caught in an imaginary window preventing her from going further. "Don't wait to hit a wall. Get vaccinated," the commercial then says.
N’attendez pas de frapper un mur.
Faites-vous vacciner. https://t.co/oTfSXfi7qt
When François Legault shared the video on Facebook, many commented on it saying it was a waste of the government's money to make such an advertisement.
One of the most liked comments reads, "Wow is this ad serious? paid with our money? you really take us for fools," translated from French.
Quebec influencer Elisabeth Rioux reacted to the commercial on her Instagram story with a similar thought. "I got the vaccine but this on the other hand? A big no, sounds like a joke. So our tax dollars are funding this kind of advertising? Fun, I always said I would keep my taxes here to contribute, this is the kind of stuff that makes you wonder! Anyway beyond the money.... WTF?," she wrote.
There's magic in the air and the jingle bells are ringing — wait a minute. It's not Christmas, so what's going on? You're not hallucinating, you're just in Blainville on Montreal's North Shore, taking in the town's Christmas in July celebrations.
During your visit, you'll cross into an illuminated tunnel that'll transport you to a Christmas playground complete with elves, lit-up trees, and other giant decorations including a 25-foot-tall Christmas tree.
There is also a traditional Christmas market, so you can buy your gifts early. VERY early.
Blainville residents have even decorated their homes with Christmas lights to really immerse visitors in the Christmas spirit.
The site is open by reservation only during three time slots: 8:30 p.m., 9:15 p.m. or 10 p.m. You will have 45 minutes to stroll the area and take in all the wonderful sights.
