It's a bit shocking. Didn't know he had cancer.

RIP.

If there was a God, Michel Vastel would still be alive and Denis Lévesque would be collecting social security checks.

THAT is a real journalist. Too many pretty boys, not enough Michel Vastels.

That guy knew what to ask, how to talk, and how to analyze.

A personal favourite.

RIP

On his blog it says he retired today also. Did he really retired and died the same day?

I sometimes read his articles and it was pretty good, I liked it.

I think it was in a poetic sense.
