"Quebec Mourns Singer-Songwriter Claude Léveillée"

This was the headline from The CBC on Thursday.

Le Journal de Montréal reported that "Claude Léveillée meurt à 78 ans."

Admittedly, I wasn't familiar with his work until this week, but I now think that Mon Pays is one of the most beautiful songs about identity, heritage, fierté nationale, and yet not quite belonging, that I've ever heard.
