Tuesday night brings the second episode of the new CBC sitcom Son of a Critch. Titled, “Lordy, Lordy, Look Who’s Dead,” it opens with a favourite family activity for the Critch clan: attending funerals.

Shocked and saddened to learn of the sudden death of Jean-Marc Vallée. The Emmy Award winning Montreal-born director passed away Dec. 26 at his cabin near Quebec City.
