Marguerite has been a resident of Laval for 36 years. Passionate about the environment since her youth, she closely followed scientist and popularizer David Suzuki, who has had a definite influence on her life.
Marguerite studied computer science until university. After the birth of her second child, she worked in the pipe organ business for 20 years. She was an apprentice with Wolff and Associates for 17 years, an organ builder in St-Vincent-de-Paul and then worked for three years at Casavant Frères, a Quebec flagship, as a draftswoman. She then held administrative positions in Laval and Montreal.
Marguerite is involved in her parish by leading the choir, organizing youth activities and fundraising concerts. She has also served two terms as a market gardener. She has been involved in politics as a volunteer with several campaigns at the federal, provincial and municipal levels. Her passion for the environment motivates her political and community activity, and the birth of two grandchildren will lead her to seek even more active participation.
In 2018, she voted for the provincial Green Party and assisted candidate Daniel Green in the federal by-election campaign in Outremont. She also founded the Green Party association in Alfred-Pellan. Her desire to be a candidate is proof that this part of Laval is a place she loves with all her heart.
