On my way to Sept-Iles to interview the doctors who threatened to resign to stop Terra Ventures from exploring for uranium, I swung my Montreal to chat with Dr. Yves Lamontagne, President of the Quebec College of Physicians. His candid comments on the doctors' threat to resign made it into the Sept-Iles documentary.
But the good doctor and I had a much longer chat about the dos and don'ts of political activism in La Belle Province. You can listen to our bonus conversation by clicking on the audio link below.
Dr. Lamontagne has had a storied medical career. A psychiatrist by training, Dr. Lamontagne has served both the public and the medical profession well in Quebec. He is an author and is also a quite the crooner, with a successful singing career on the side. In October, Dr. Yves Lamontagne steps down from the College to pursue his many other interests.
We wish him a satisfying transition.
