Claude Bechard (Bay-shar'), a youthful Quebec cabinet minister who soldiered on despite suffering from terminal cancer, died September 7th at the age of 41. Visibly weakened by his pancreatic cancer, Bechard continued working during his final months. Just hours before the death was announced, Quebec Premier Jean Charest fought back tears at a news conference where he paid tribute to his colleague. (Bechard left behind two daughters from a previous relationship, as well as his spouse Mylene Champoux, and her two children.)
