I recall >from my younger days, living in Montreal, the reading of the
banns by Rabbi Denburg, then the Rabbi of the B'nai Jacob Congregation,
as part of the Shabbat services. He would, as part of the announcements
of his classes, etc., read the list of forthcoming marriages. My
understanding was that this was a civil requirement of the Quebec
government.
