MONTREAL, Oct. 10 /CNW Telbec/ - Laurentian Bank of Canada is pleased to
announce that it has renewed its partnership with October Blues in Joliette as
a sponsor of the event. October blues, the fifth edition of which will take
place from October 15 to 18, is the region's major cultural event that offers

Joliette's Cultural Centre as well as local cafés, bars and restaurants. The
majority of these shows are free, but places should be reserved in advance.
