« On behalf of the Québec nation, I offer my deepest condolences to the family and loved ones of Mr. Guy Lafleur.
Guy Lafleur had a lasting impact on several generations through his athletic feats, kindness and generosity. We admired his rushes, winning goals and Stanley Cups. Seeing one of our own dominate the National Hockey League with such flair gave us great pride.
He was the idol of a people. He made us dream. He made us win.
All of Québec is in mourning. I invite Quebecers to join me in paying tribute to him and expressing our condolences to his loved ones. »
François Legault, Premier of Québec
