Legendary Montreal Canadiens hockey great Jean Béliveau passed away late last week. Since then tributes have poured in from far and wide. Few public figures, even those much loved, are totally free of a bit of negativity murmured at their passing. Yet Béliveau seems to have accomplished precisely that.
I was downtown yesterday and made a point of taking an hour or so to join the thousands of mourners who paid their respects to the Béliveau family at Montreal’s BELL Centre. Below are some photos I took.
