Welcome to DCMontreal!

Welcome to DCMontreal. I’m Deegan Charles Stubbs, a Montreal writer born and raised. First let me explain the triple name lest you think me snooty. Back when corresponding with someone involved putting pen – or IBM Selectric font ball – to paper, I would include the Charles so that, should my correspondent reply, he or she would know to address me as Mr. not Ms, given my rare first name.  This hit home after countless pieces of mail addressed to Mrs. Deegan Stubbs hit my desk.

I like to observe things through my armchair sociologist’s eyes and establish balances and juxtapositions; a bit of this and a nub of that, a dash of Yin and a soupçon of Yang, some Peaks and an occasional Frean (you have to be a biscuit lover to get that one) and maybe even a bit of a sting in the tail!

I have worked as an organizer of special events, including a stint on the 1984 visit of Pope John Paul II to Montreal, and as a coordinator of political conventions. For the last seventeen years I have kept busy as an administrator and communications consultant for several small capital resource companies.

Contrary to common blogging wisdom, I’ve chosen to keep my options open, so no narrow niche here. To make things easy to navigate, I have split my blog into two broad categories. If you want to peruse posts that illustrate my take on life’s lighter side, maybe even have a chuckle or two – or just shake your head in disbelief, please click on the DCMontreal Light option above. Should you prefer to read my thoughts on more serious issues, please click on the DCMontreal Commentary option. As someone who often uses humour to convey his message – must be the Irish in me – I can guarantee you there will be some overlap of the two categories.

Sometimes I even try a little photography, but have to admit I’m more Gomez Addams than Ansel Adams when it comes to a camera!

You can click on any of the following images to see some of my published pieces.


Let’s keep in touch, please follow my blog and me on Twitter @DCMontreal and on Facebook, and add me to your circles on Google.

    D.C., I just saw an old “Dick Cavett Show” (1972), courtesy of Get-TV. Jackie Robinson and Joan Baez were the guests. Jackie discussed politics, death of Jackie Jr. and his dealings with the Black Power Movement. POWERFUL stuff.
    Baez, who I have ADORED as a singer since 1960, disappointed with rude and ignorant jabberings about social ills, the Vietnam War and the American Political system. Cavett was a restrained and polite host. He taped his show just down the street from where I worked during my years with ABC Network News. We used to meet at a place called McGlades, the drinking spot for locals. Oh, the stories I could tell!!
