Gatineau, Quebec [Canada]

Member of the Order of Canada

Awarded on October 23, 1997; Invested on February 4, 1998

A historian-journalist of long-standing, he has the gift of conveying his ideas on the social and political climate in an objective and credible manner often leavened with humour. His writings, particularly Trente Ans de Journalisme, demonstrate the range of his experiences over the course of his career. His readers and colleagues acknowledge him to be one of the most respected Francophone journalists of his time.
