« I loved the references to the past, to history, to the buildings that preceded Le Diamant; I loved the uncluttered character, the emphasis on light, the glazed spaces on the upper floors, the magnificent views over Place D’Youville. »

« Very relevant and important information to know. Robert Lepage is an outstanding ambassador for Quebec City and Quebec. To know all that he brings to our culture is simply extraordinary. »
