Passing of Jean Béliveau

December 3, 2014

Message from the Governor General of Canada
on the Passing of Jean Béliveau

BOGOTA―Canada has lost a great champion with the passing of Jean Béliveau. He was graceful and powerful, both on and off the ice. He set new standards of excellence in how we play hockey and set compelling standards of civility in how we conduct ourselves with one another.
