Têtes à claque s (link to Madame Sylvia Duckworth's Youtube Playlist of episodes)
Têtes à claques is a humour website whose skits feature characters sculpted from modelling clay .The phrase tête à claques translates loosely as "a face so ugly, you want to slap it." The site is very popular ,not only because of the intentional humour and wit, but also because of the stereotypical Quebec French pronunciation and frequent anglicisms .

Le Hockey

51WDJV0P1HL._SL500_AA240_.jpg
Le Chandail de Hockey --The short story was originally published in 1979 as "Une abominable feuille d'érable sur la glace" by Canadian author Roch Carrier. "The Hockey Sweater" is based on a real experience of Carrier growing up in an isolated part of Quebec in the 1940s. He, like many boys his age, was a big fan of the Montreal Canadiens and their star player, Maurice "The Rocket" Richard. Though a relatively recent story, it has become a very well known work of literature in Canada. It was made into a National Film Board of Canada (NFB) animated short in 1980, known as The Sweater, or Le Chandail. The short is often shown, in both French and English, to elementary school students, making it very well known amongst Canadian youth. The story is widely considered an allegory for the linguistic and cultural tensions between anglophone and francophone Canadians, and an essential classic of Canadian literature. An excerpt from the story is now featured in both official languages of Canada on the reverse of the Canadian five-dollar bill

The Rocket (Trailer is in english but film is in French and English)
As a young boy from blue collar Quebec, Maurice Richard had a dream to play in the National Hockey League. This is the extraordinary story of the man whose tireless fight on and off the ice ignited and forever changed a generation. Focusing on the struggles of a French Canadian in the National Hockey League dominated by Anglophones, this film is very popular in my French classes..
