Marc A. Bovet, founding president, BONE Structure
Established in March 2002 by Yannick Gagné, the Musi-Café restaurant and bar in Lac-Mégantic quickly acquired a reputation as theplace for cultural and social gatherings in the region. For 12 years, it served as a venue for dozens of artists from the immediate area and from across Quebec, and was destroyed along with a large part of the downtown core in the tragic accident of July 6, 2013. The rebuilt Musi-Café is a strong symbol of the determination to revitalize the municipality on the shores of Lake Mégantic.
