I am saddened to learn of Mrs. Aline Chrétien’s passing. Canada and Quebec have lost a remarkable woman today. My condolences to the Chrétien family and to the city of Shawinigan.

#AlineChretien was a touch of humanity & class to PM #JeanChretien‘s brash, populist persona. Our society has made progress since the 1990s, but there were hard, even perilous days then. We knew she was the greatest force that stood behind our PM…/2
