English programming this week on MAtv

Rockin’ Ages host Wilma Magonet, right, and her granddaughter Charlotte.

Monday and Tuesday at 7 pm and 11 pm – CityLife, with Richard Dagenais. Monday: It's been a year since the CAQ was elected, and relations with the anglophone community are strained at best. Polls show that most anglophones don't think the government understands their concerns, never mind trust them to take action on issues important to the community. Plus, a one-on-one interview with the CAQ's point man on anglophone affairs.

Tuesday

Montreal has some beautiful old buildings. But others are so old they're falling apart, literally. Bricks and facades have fallen from buildings, injuring some people. The city changed the rules a few years ago to force owners to keep up on maintenance. We speak with officials about what's being done and find out why some landlords point the finger of blame at government officials for the problem.
