    Ah, Quebec City. I spent part of my honeymoon there last year. There were never more than 8-9 people at daily Mass at Notre Dame Cathedral. Very sad.

    >> would there be any reporters left on the staff? "Reporters"? Here in Quebec City, if we had such policies for churches, there wouldn't be any Priests left! :-)

    It is possible for an American reporter to lose his or her job for misconduct in print. Ask Jason Blair and Janet Cooke. But in the narrow sense---of misreporting what a Catholic clergyman says---it ain't going to happen.
