Le Huffington Post’s Anne Sinclair Welcomes Quebec Team

Le Huffington Post Québec launched today.

Anne Sinclair, editorial director of Le Huffington Post France, the other French language version of HuffPost, sent a congratulatory welcome note to the Quebec team.

Here’s what she wrote:

Félicitations!! Vous allez voir comme le temps passe vite: nous n’avons même pas trois semaines d’existence et l’équipe de Paris et moi avons l’impression qu’on a toujours été la!! Vous prenez ce que vous voulez chez nous, et nous, on a commencé avec Martelly! Bon début. Amitiés à tous d’un Paris presque aussi glacial que Montréal!!

Translation:

Congratulations!! You can see how time goes by rapidly: we’ve only been around for three weeks, and the Paris team and I feel like we have always been here!! Take what you like from our site, as we did the same by taking Martelly’s piece today! Good luck. Cheers to everyone from Paris, the city is almost as freezing as Montreal today!!

Someone likes exclamation marks.
