A vigil will take place on Tuesday November 3 from 6 p.m. in front of the Pierre Lassonde pavilion, for his family, friends, colleagues, and those who would like to pay tribute to him.
“All those who will want to show their sadness and especially to pay tribute to François will be welcome,” the MNBAQ said in a press release Monday morning.
In fact, the pavilion will be illuminated in green over the next few days, a color that symbolizes hope, to underline the memory of the one who worked hard to make the lighting of the Grande Allée building possible. Like the flag of the National Assembly, the one on the pavilion’s forecourt will be half-masted for three days.
A candlelight sharing evening is organized in front of Suzanne Clermont’s at 7 p.m. Monday, rue des Remparts. People are invited to bring flowers and candles.
