Jacques Corriveau, dead at 85

Jacques Corriveau is dead at 85. Corriveau was a successful interior designer in Montreal – worked on pavilion design at Expo 67 – then branched out into advertising and other forms of design. Tu Thanh Ha’s piece in the Globe and Mail describes Corriveau’s friendship with Jean Chrétien and his role in the sponsorship scandal.

Quebec has always been angry about this federalist scandal: the Journal writes a headline saying Corriveau died before doing his time, but at 85, how much time could he realistically have served?
