Passing of Mr. Michel Dallaire
It is with great sadness that we learned of the passing of Mr. Michel Dallaire. Mr. Dallaire passed away in Sudbury at the age of 60.
The Francophonie of Ontario has lost a great writer. Mr. Dallaire greatly contributed to the francophone culture of Ontario with his novels, his poems and in the music industry with texts like L’homme exponentiel interpreted by Steph Paquette.
Recipient of numerous awards, he left his mark with publications like Violoncelle pour une lune d’automne, winner of a Trillium award in 2015, and Le pays intime, winner of the best poetry album during the gala by the APCM in 2001.
On behalf of the team at the Office of the French Language Services Commissioner, we extend our sincerest condolences to his family, friends and loved ones.
