The Big Cleanup - Denis Lepine's documentary

volunteers.JPGDenis Lepine is a veteran TV producer and director who lives in Mont St Grégoire, about 15 minutes to the east of the Richelieu River valley.

His home and studio aren't flooded - but he remembers very well his own brush with environmental disaster during the 1998 ice storm, how communities came together when faced with disaster. 

That's why he's out there today filming the volunteers for his documentary S.O.S. Richelieu.
