Activist honoured

Actu EN activist honoured

Gabriel Meunier, chair of the Équiterre action group in Lanaudière, has won the Environment category at the Forum Jeunesse Lanaudière’s Gala Florilège! The ceremony, which celebrates local youth between the ages of 12 and 35, rewarded Gabriel for his commitment and perseverance.

With Gabriel at the helm, the group carried out a dozen actions to make over 1,200 residents of the region more environmentally aware. Gabriel also volunteers at SODAM’s Marchés Desjardins Moulinois outdoor public market and with the Coalition vigilance oléoducs [oil pipeline vigilance coalition]. Gabriel is also on the organizing committee of the provincial roundtable on oil pipelines and the arrival of the tar sands in Quebec. He takes up every battle with fervour and integrity. At just 24, he already has the makings of a great environmentalist!

We’re very proud to have Gabriel on our team and more than grateful for his strong commitment. Congratulations to him on his win!
