I have never met this man personally but have heard from friends who spoke highly of him. I have often read his letters to the Editor in Tthe Gazette which were always insightful, sensible and well represented Verdun.  Perhaps some of our members know more.                                                            Ed

Oh no!  I never met him either but he used to send his letters to Dialogue also, an anglophone publication I wrote for 1989-1998.  What I loved about him is that he was frank and honest and said it as he saw it.  He could not be silenced!  I know he made people think.  So sorry to hear this.  My condolences to the family.   Dolly
