Monsieur le Maire, Jean Drapeau et sa ville

40 years after the 1976’s Olympics, Mayor Drapeau: a plus or a minus for HIS city Montreal?

Journalist Marc Laurendeau’s take on famous Montreal mayor Jean Drapeau. Over a period of five decades Marc Laurendeau observed, parodied, interviewed and critiqued “Monsieur le maire Jean Drapeau”, all the while harbouring an undeniable admiration for him and his gutsy accomplishments. Nearly 30 years after Drapeau’s last day in office, Laurendeau questions Drapeau’s contemporaries on critical moments in his political career. Jean Drapeau’s political heritage is that of a man who changed Montreal forever.
