Remembering Jean Lapierre

Former Shefford MP, cabinet minister, and long-time journalist Jean Lapierre died last month.

Lapierre’s charm and reputation undoubtedly played a large part in convincing politicians to spill the beans about the Quebec referendum of 1995, and what they’d have done if Quebecers had voted to separate.

Co-written with Chantal Hebert, The Morning After: The 1995 Quebec Referendum And The Day That Almost Was (2014) is filed in the Lennoxville Library’s Non-Fiction section at 971.4. It’s also available in French translation, as Confessions Post-Referendaires : Les Acteurs Politiques De 1995 Et Le Scenario d’Un Oui.
