In remembrance of Pierre Lasserre, 1950-2017:
It is with great sadness that the CEA notes the death of Pierre Lasserre, which occurred on Monday, April 10, 2017, in tragic circumstances, resulting from a fatal fall in a ski descent at Mont-Blanc.
Pierre organized the Montréal Environment and Resource Economics Workshop for a few years. He was also co-chair, with his colleague and friend Gérard Gaudet, of the local organizing committee of the 4th World Congress of Environmental and Resource Economics in 2010, which was a huge success. He also leaves behind numerous publications recognized in his field of expertise. But, above all, Pierre was a well-liked and compassionate man who was always ready to lend a helping hand. Beyond the loss of the researcher, we mourn the passing of a good man.
