PRIX DU MONT-ROYAL 2014: TRIBUTE TO FREDERIC BACK

Within the opening ceremony of the Corvée du Mont-Royal, the Ville de Montréal and Les amis de la montagne will pay tribute to feu Frédéric Back, a posthumous award of the Prix du Mont-Royal 2014.

Illustrator, filmmaker and pioneer of the ecological movement, Frédéric Back died in Montreal on December 24, 2013. A man committed to the protection of the environment since the early 1960’s, Mr. Back expressed his concern for the cause through his artistic creations. Read the news.

The Prix du Mont-Royal pays tribute to individuals, who through their vision and commitment towards the protection and enhancement of the mountain’s historic and natural heritage, are an inspiration to all Montrealers and Quebecers.
