Letter to Michel Chartrand, from his daughter Suzanne
Suzanne Chartrand has spent the past months writing about her father, the radical union leader Michel Chartrand, who died a a few years ago. Today would be his 100th birthday.
Here is a letter celebrating his life and social movements here and elsewhere. Note that Suzanne's mother, Simone Monet-Chartrand, was also a lifelong social activist - I have her autobiography in my library, with a dedication. I knew both of them, but can't claim to have been an intimate friend.
