Montreal, September 26, 2017. The Honourable Mélanie Joly, Member of Parliament for Ahuntsic-Cartierville, visited three centenarians of the Charbonneau family residing at the CHSLD Légaré, located on Legendre Street in Ahuntsic-Cartierville. In honour of this special occasion, the CEO of the CHSLD, Mr. Pierre Gfeller and members of the Charbonneau family welcomed the MP.
Suzanne, 103, Jean-Marie, 100 and Lucille, 105, are still quite active. Especially Jean-Marie, who shared his passion for aviation and his long career at Air Canada with the MP. Thanks to the Montreal mobile library, Suzanne reads several books a month.
It was Francine Durand, the daughter of Lucille, who had contacted the MP’s office about her family’s exceptional longevity. During this visit, she also mentioned that her grandparents had celebrated their 75th wedding anniversary!
