Louis Bérubé is a singer-songwriter who has had a long-standing interest in politics, as well as the defense of social justice and the environment. In New Brunswick, Louis is also known for his advocacy for public access to lands operated by Irving, a hot battle he has been fighting for several years.
Louis was born in 1969 in Saint-Quentin, New Brunswick. At the age of six, he sang in public for the first time, and at nine he wrote his first song. Fourth in a family of thirteen, he had to drop out of school in Grade 8 to help his father provide for his family. During his life, he had to go back to school in order to take up jobs in the forestry field and as an insurance agent and entrepreneur. But, in 2003, he devoted himself entirely to music, a passion that never left him.
Louis and his wife Annick currently live in the city of Edmundston, New Brunswick, and are the proud parents of three children, Rémika, Jonathan and Sébastien, and the proud grandparents of three grandchildren. According to Louis, his entry into politics with the Green Party fits perfectly with his aspirations and values. New foundations for social justice, politics and of course, a healthier planet — that is what Louis wants for future generations.
