Born in Rimouski (Quebec), March 7, 1953.
My parents gave me my very first compass when I was barely six years old. I didn’t see it at first, because I was holding a pair of shoes. But then I noticed that the heel on one of them moved. And when I turned it, what a surprise! It contained a compass. So it meant I could wander far and wide and use my compass – but not at the same time!
