Brief overview

'I am a beautiful person by nature, it shows that even in an industrial city like Rouyn-Noranda, in the shadow of the chimneys, the inhabitants live in symbiosis with the nature that surrounds them. The landscape of the region is made of lakes that soothe us, rivers that flow in our veins and limitless spaces that transport us to the horizon. The universe is within our reach and we share the dream of a better life with all humans on earth.'– Jacques Baril
