I was saddened to learn of the death last night of the iconic Québec labour activist Madeleine Parent. She was 93 so I knew that when I wrote this tribute to her more than five years ago I would more than likely outlive her.
One thing is certain – the legacy of Madeleine Parent will continue to live on for many years to come!
