Ardent chapel for Paul Houde Friday at the Montreal Planetarium

The host and actor Paul Houde, who died on March 2, will be in state on Friday, April 5 at the Montreal Planetarium. His family invites the public to pay their last respects between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. and between 3 p.m. and 7 p.m.

Described by many as a “living encyclopedia”, Mr. Houde was passionate about astronomy and a skillful popularizer. Holding the event at the Planetarium, a scientific museum with an educational vocation, is not trivial.

Paul Houde began his media career in 1975 as a radio sports commentator. In the decades that followed, he also became known as a comedian (The Boys) and collaborated on various projects by Marc Labrèche, including The end of the world is at 7 o’clock. He was host of the return show at 98.5 Montreal from 2007 to 2019. Recently, he collaborated on The day (is still young)on the air of ICI Première.

His death at the beginning of March earned him a shower of praise from the media and political classes.
