Former Laval mayor Claude Ulysse Lefebvre dies

(TLN) In the name of citizens, municipal councillors and employees of the city, Laval Mayor Marc Demers offered his condolences earlier this week to the family of Claude Ulysse Lefebvre, Laval’s third mayor (1981 – 1989) who has died.

Consulted citizens

“Mr. Lefebvre passed away peacefully surrounded by loved ones after a well-lived life during, a large part of which was dedicated to developing Laval,” Demers said in a statement after meeting with the former mayor’s family.

Claude Ulysse Lefebvre will be remembered for a number of advancements in Laval, including the creation of the Consultactions, which were forums during which Laval residents were invited to speak openly on the policies of the city and to express their wants and needs in the various districts.

Expanded libraries

Lefebvre also will be remembered for greatly expanding the Laval municipal library system following a public consultation, and for making the Maison des arts de Laval a reality. Known for his great love of culture and his ability to listen to people, Lefebvre’s record included the revitalization of several commercial arteries in the former towns and villages that make up Laval.
