In May this year (2021), Serge Bouchard, Québec’s celebrated anthropologist and broadcaster, keen observer of the human heart in many places, passed away suddenly at the young age of 73. I am an unabashed fan of this man and his humanism and wish in this service to tell a bit of his story, which represents the very best of what our Québec society offers in terms of values and care.
Well known for his researches on the Innu [formerly Montagnais] nation and the world of long-distance truckers, Serge brought his caring heart and insights also to the details that make up our everyday lives. His warm voice and his love for our common humanity will be sorely missed.
