On le sait, le 1er juillet à Montréal est une journée de déménagement. Celles et ceux d’entres nous qui, par chance, ne déménagent pas cette année-là, ont toujours une petite pensée empathique pour les autres qui, sous un soleil de plomb, devront écoper les allers-retours entre maisonnées pour porter à…


A self-discovery

Epic picture taken from my friend E. during my one and only backcountry camping trip at the Strathcona National Park

My first experience sleeping in a tent was when I was 8 or 9 years old. We lived in a remote village in the French Alps, and my parents had purchased an old sheepfold in the mountain built at least 200 years ago. …


I have had that distinct thought in the back of my mind throughout my time in university studying mechanical engineering. The program I was in was at least 40 years old. In 40 years, it is quite certain that many changes were made to the curriculum. But I was surprised…

I have been living there for the past 2.5 years and must say I don’t regret moving here one bit. …


My background is quite unique: I had the chance to work on automotive fuel cells research and development, and battery electric buses integration projects. …


I was 19 years old when I first set foot in British Colombia, Canada from my village in the South of France. My English at the time was highly questionable, and the only fact I knew about the city I was moving into was that it hosted a parliament house…
