We were very sad to learn of the death of our former colleague Anne-Marie Trahan, also formerly a judge of the Superior Court of Québec.
She was a leading figure in the fight for women's advancement, not only within our profession, but more broadly in all spheres of society.
The Barreau du Québec had just awarded her the Christine Tourigny Award of Merit, a fitting distinction to recognize her social commitment and her special contribution to the advancement of women in the profession.
She was involved in many organizations, including as a patron of the Faculty of Music of the Université de Montréal.
We wish to pay our respects to the person and to her legacy, both forever a source of inspiration for all of us.
