In the early 2000s, he was appointed president of Corus-Québec, which then owned 14 radio stations throughout Québec. He also served on the boards of directors of Tel-Aide and the Fondation pour enfants diabétiques.

It's definitely a great opportunitiy to catchup with old friends, and meet new ones!
Come to the official kickoff of our monthly Hackathon!
Why is it called a “Hackathon”?
Well, we just borrowed a bit of inspiration from the computer programmer events of the same name where people with a common interest (company, club, project) get together for a few days, roll up their sleeves, and see what they can accomplish in a very short time. They are also a great chance for people who don’t meet day to day to network, share their thoughts, and have some fun together.
Japanese sake or, nihonshu, is globally recognized as an essential part of Japanese cuisine, but few know what a wide variety of flavors and styles there are. Several larger brands enjoy international success while many smaller brewers, with equal passion and skill, are eager to introduce their product to a broader audience. The Kikizakekai Tasting Evening is the ideal opportunity to discover some of the smaller craft breweries and their products, jizake, as well as enjoy some the most recognizable brands.
