Patrice Bélanger, recipient of the Jean Boileau Prize


The FMG took the opportunity at the Comedy Gala to present the annual Jean Boileau Prize to its spokesperson for the past 12 years, Patrice Bélanger. This award recognizes the work of a person who marked the Festival through their dedication and involvement.

“The love story between Patrice Bélanger and the FMG is nothing new! Even as a student, he was very tenacious and convincing. He would come to me year after year with his microphone and his media accreditation to do interviews for the radio and the student newspaper.

Many years later, despite his brilliant career, he has managed to maintain his dynamic personality, his enthusiasm and his keen interest in the event that is the pride of Gatineau residents, all while promoting it with his new microphones ... '' explains Jean Boileau, founder of the Gatineau Hot Air Balloon Festival and Director of Communications for the City of Gatineau.
