Impressions of a former Quebec City mayor

I met Jean Pelletier in the 1960's when we were both named to a junior committee of the Quebec Symphony Orchestra. I was impressed by his intelligence and knowledge of music.

It was with sadness and dismay a few days after Christmas that I was informed that my uncle-in-law Sergeant Gregory John Kruse was killed in action in Afghanistan.
