"Not long ago, I had the pleasure, indeed honor, of sitting down with Laurent recently to reflect back on his long career. He is Canada's, indeed one of the world's great entrepreneurs and I have followed and commented on Bombardier for the some 18 years I have been at McGill in Montreal, where their global headquarters is. I have known him a bit for a long time and been a close and avid follower of Bombardier and Monsieur Beaudoin."
