the majority of voting shareholders as well as
the majority of the board of directors must be
composed of bailiffs. Please see the Regulation

Juri Golf tournament
The Juri Golf
annual tournament took place on June 16 of this
year to benefit the Fondation Jean Marc Paquette
(FJMP). The sum of $200,000.00 raised over the
course of that day will go towards helping women
with breast cancer.
The 21st edition
of this event was marked by the absence of this
great man, Jean Marc Paquette, who unfortunately
passed away last year. With much courage and in
a voice sometimes strangled with emotion, Leo
Iacono, member of the FJMP, hosted the evening
and paid homage to the man who had been like a
father to him.
Special homage was
also paid to Robert L. Conconi, a very generous
donor who has given over $100,000.00 to the
Fondation over the past five years. Mr. Conconi
is a personal friend and business associate of

In closing, we would like to congratulate the
conference’s organizers for the environmental
portion of the day. Such initiatives must be
acknowledged and encouraged… Bravo!
