    Keynote Speakers 2001 ROCH CARRIER Roch Carrier Roch Carrier was born in Sainte-Justine, Quebec, on May 13, 1937. He received a bachelor of arts degree (1957)from the Université Saint-Louis in Edmundston, New Brunswick, a master of arts degree (1964) from the Université de Montréal, and a doctorat ès lettres degree (1970) from the Université de Paris. In 1964, he joined the French Department of the Collège militaire royal de Saint-Jean (CMR), where he taught literature until 1970. In search of new challenges, he continued his teaching career at the Université de Montréal (1970-1971). He was appointed secretary general of the Théâtre du Nouveau Monde in 1971. He returned to CMR as director of the French Department (1973-1980) and coordinator of the undergraduate program in Canadian Studies. In 1986, he became dean of the Faculty of Administration and Humanities. In August 1989, he was named acting rector, and in March 1990, he was appointed rector. Several novels written by Mr. Carrier are considered classics and are used in schools and universities around the world, in both French and English. Some have been translated into foreign languages. He has also written plays that have been produced both in Canada and abroad. In addition to teaching, administrative responsibilities and writing, Mr. Carrier has been active in such prestigious cultural organizations as the Canada Council for the Arts and the Théâtre du Nouveau Monde, where he served on the board of directors, in various capacities, over a period of 12 years. He also acted as a consultant to the Canadian Film Development Corporation for six years. He was the director of Québec 10/10, a collection of Quebec literature published in paperback by Stanké, and was advisor to the Quebec Minister of Cultural Affairs.

    9. Interview With Roch Carrier
    From the Marginal Librarian.
    Interview with Roch Carrier National Librarian of Canada Photo by D. Gwyn Everyone has to start somewhere; in fact an experience similar to the one above can be found on the resume of our current National Librarian, Roch Carrier, who early on in his career learned the value of books and the power of a good sales pitch. His recent appointment as National Librarian will no doubt put these skills to the test as he moves forward to raise the profile of the National Library, and reinforce the importance of libraries and literacy across the country. Mr. Carrier visited McGill's Graduate School of Library and Information Studies in early November and spoke to a full house of staff and students about his role, his vision and his thoughts about information and society. (For a full report on his speech see David Kemper's article When asked about his priorities, Carrier listed three main challenges he faces as National Librarian. The first and foremost is to interpret the governmental mandate for the National Library and fit it into the newly delineated vision. Challenge number two is to take an objective look at what the National Library is doing, and to identify areas for improvement. Challenge number three is to increase funding for libraries. He did not believe that asking for a bigger budget was feasible without addressing the first two challenges on his list. "[Budget] cuts need to be corrected and won't unless people know what libraries are doing." Carrier said. He plans on getting the word out.

    April 21, 1995
    "Words aren't the true reality. Thinking about a trout isn't the same as holding it, slippery and trembling, in your hand; but words make a kind of magic that revives dead things and brings to life other things not yet alive. Words bestow life." Roch Carrier, No Country without Grandfathers "To write is to agree to play the great game of life, of love and of death where the soul is condemned to lose at the end of the game, and the novelist is he who never really accepts this role." Roch Carrier "When nothing happens, one always hopes to go where there is something. The dream therefore takes a major place in the spirit and one develops this ability which is essential to the writer." Roch Carrier
    A prolific contemporary Quebecois author, Roch Carrier has a number of works to his credit, and has received many prizes and honours, among them the 1991 Stephen Leacock Prize for humour for Prayers of a Very Wise Child His inspiration often has an autobiographical source, and he likes to describe the lives of people here and elsewhere.

    A Pile of Shit, Yes Sir! While I was at the Missisauga Central Library last week, I managed to pick up a slim paperback for a buck - Roch Carrier's La Guerre, Yes Sir! , a translation of his 1968 novel. I've never read anything else by Carrier, but I would suspect that his work is pretty much the same.
    The book is full of characters, albeit not very interesting ones. For an anti-war novel (presumably - it was hard to tell whether it was anti-war, anti-British or what), it was full of characters abusing others, whether it was a father kicking his son in the ass or a soldier demolishing a man's face who praises killing Germans. Since that particular soldier had no personal experience of the horrors of war (he cleaned bathrooms on a base), there was no reason for him to be so violent. That's basically the way the whole novel went. It was impossible to determine what each character's motivation was - a mark of hackwork. All of them are flat; we really don't know anything about any of the characters, about their backgrounds.
    La Guerre has the feel of a Vonnegut or Heller, but without their class. Full of bitter mockery - of every character, not just the English (soldiers) who "smiled because they didn't understand a word" of French. We find out at the end of the novel that the French Canadian character Corriveau, who was mourned and wept over so much where the reader didn't give a damn about him anymore, died by stepping on a mine while trying to relieve himself. Amusing as that is, Carrier's writing (and/or perhaps the translation by Sheila Fischman) is so incompetent that the reader isn't able to laugh. We're so sick of his family and the other villagers who pray over "poor Corriveau," a French Canadian tragic figure who died in a war that, according to the novel, the French Canadians didn't even want. Who is to blame for this war? The English? Who cares!

    Who would have known that of all the boys who dreamed of one day becoming the next Maurice Richard, it would be Roch Carrier, the self-admitted worst hockey player in his village, who would one day be given Richard's hockey sweater by his childhood idol? Born May 13, 1937 in Sainte-Justine, Quebec, Roch Carrier has always followed his own path. The path leading from his village's outdoor skating rink to the office of Canada's National Librarian has been a long and winding one, filled with many achievements and surprises. One thing that was not a surprise to Roch Carrier was becoming an author. From the time he was a young boy, he knew he wanted to be a writer. Not content to just sit and write all day, he also wanted to be involved in life. He has been able to fulfill both desires. At the age of 31, he published his hugely successful novel, La Guerre, Yes Sir!

    16. Roch Carrier Becomes Librarian Of Canada
    Article from the Montreal Gazette.
    Reprinted from
    Tuesday 6 July 1999 Roch Carrier becomes librarian of Canada

    Southam Newspapers FILE PHOTO / Carrier's getting job is believed so library can become more prominent in unity debate.
    Roch Carrier, the award-winning novelist who ran for the Quebec Liberals in the provincial election last year has been named to a $140,000-a-year federal post as Canada's national librarian. Canadian Heritage Minister Sheila Copps announced yesterday that Carrier, a former director of the Canada Council under the Liberals, will take over as head of the national library in October. The move comes despite earlier arguments from the Canadian Library Association that the government should put a professional librarian in the post following the retirement of Marianne Scott. 'Going to promote Canada' However, government officials suggest the appointment means the Liberals plan to catapult the low-profile $30-million-a-year federal institution into a more prominent role as the national unity battle against Quebec separatists heats up. "He's going to promote Canada," Jacques Lefebvre, Copps's press secretary, said of Carrier's appointment and duties.At the same time, Copps announced another ardent Quebec federalist, veteran journalist Laurier Lapierre, will be her special consultant on the creation of an advisory board to oversee the national library and the national archives.

In The Boxing Champion , Roch Carrier returns to his childhood village of Sainte Justine to continue the story of his athletic adventures. This time, it is spring.
