A public square just steps away from Côte-Vertu métro station.
To honor Mr. Rodolphe Rousseau, a citizen who by his social involvement has marked the Laurentian and Montreal community, the Borough has decided to attribute his name to this 375th anniversary legacy.
Rodolphe Rousseau (1931-2010) is a Saint-Laurent resident who invested his efforts in the Montréal community. An officer in the Canadian armed forces, he was awarded the Decoration of Canada in 1969. On the political scene, he was a Saint-Laurent City Councillor from 1970 to 1986 and President of Saint-Laurent’s Liberal riding association from 1981 to 1995. Among his community work, he was a member of the Board of Directors of the Montreal Board of Trade, the Caisse populaire Desjardins de Saint-Laurent, the Commission scolaire Sainte-Croix and the Fondation du conseil scolaire de l’île de Montréal. Moreover, Mr. Rousseau was the President of the World Trade Center in Canada and took part in locating it in Montréal, thereby helping to promote it internationally.
