Mr. Hubert Reeves, an illustrious partner
In 2002, Mrs. Iolande Cadrin-Rossignol made a film on the life of Hubert Reeves, a production of Colette Loumède. The production company was the National Film Board (NFB). In this film, which can be seen on the NFB’s website, we discover Mr. Reeves’ life, including the part spent on the Iles-de-la-Paix. The part of the film shot on the Iles-de-la-Paix begins at the 45th minute of the film.
In April 2008, the Éditions du Seuil published Reeves' Je n’aurai pas le temps. In this work, he speaks of his childhood, his passion for the cosmos, his career, and various important stages in his life. The fourth chapter, titled La maison de Bellevue : « Avez-vous vu le ciel? » (The house at Bellevue: "Have you seen the sky?") tells of his childhood in his maternal grandfather’s house, built in 1907 in Léry. Mr. Reeves dedicates several chapters to this territory he explored, which he simply called "les îles".
Hubert Reeves supports the efforts of the Society for tte Protection of Parc des Iles-de-la-Paix to save his favourite islands.
