The meeting place for industrialists in Quebec

The meeting place for industrialists in Quebec


The 20th Salon Industriel de Québec (SIQ), the largest of its kind in Eastern Canada, opens today at the Center de expositions de Québec and continues until 'on Thursday. Presented every two years, the SIQ is the business meeting not to be missed to meet prime contractors, distributors, suppliers and subcontractors from across the province. In addition to bringing together the know-how of nearly 500 companies represented on 125,000 square feet of exhibition space, the event has an impressive machine-tool section, a very popular feature of the show. In past years, approximately 6000 visitors have passed through the doors of the SIQ at each presentation. That of this year is under the honorary presidency of Denis Beauchemin (photo), Director of Innovation and Digital Transformation at CEI Québec of Québec International.  

Diamond Wedding

Pauline Poulin and Florent Morin(photo), from Saint-Georges, in Beauce, celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary at the beginning of August. He, originally from Saint-Jean-de-la-Lande, and she, from Notre-Dame-des-Pins, were married on August 6, 1962 at the small church in Pauline's hometown (photo). Florent had several jobs (photographer, musician, singer) while Pauline took care of the kids: Diane, Lucie, Julie and Richard. Their diamond wedding anniversary was celebrated in style last Saturday, August 6 at Georgesville with the presence of 28 members of the large Morin family, including 9 grandchildren and 2 great-grandsons. Pauline and Florent gave each of their children the book These stories that made us live, which they wrote together in 2021. In closing, Pauline reveals to me the secret of the longevity of their couple: trust, humor, prayer as well as activities various physical and mental. Their greatest source of pride: their family. Congratulations to both of you. 

A great artist

Lucienne Cornet(photo), creator of several public works of art in Quebec and elsewhere, died on August 30 at the age of 85. She was a lecturer at the School of Visual Arts during the 1980s and 1990s. She also studied there to obtain a master's degree in visual arts (2000). She therefore left her mark in the city of Quebec, both through her teaching and through the variety of her works. In Quebec, we owe him the four bronze wolves, the Quatuor d’airain,that adorns the entrance to the Quebec City Convention Center. Other sculptures by the artist are scattered in emblematic places in the Capitale-Nationale, such as the Salle Albert-Rousseau, the Domaine Forget, the Espace Félix-Leclerc or the Séminaire de Québec. My condolences to the whole family.
