Happy New Year!

2014

Please, dear members, sponsors and friends of IDA Quebec, let me convey you my wishes for a New Year full of good health for all of you, your familiy and friends.

For the starry sky let’s hope some new major steps towards the discovery of its greatness and beauty for all Quebecers. If we all do our part, one step after the other (“one bulb at a time” as Pierre Tournay said), we will get what we want for ourselves and for the generations to come. The future is integrated in our work by the ecological nature of our approach which make us part of the broader sustainability movement.

Thanks a lot for your support, your help and/or your implication and I hope to have you with us in 2014 at least as dynamics as you were until now!

Happy New Year!
