Eddie Goldenberg and Peter Donolo write in Policy Magazine on the life of Canada’s Grounded Matriarch: Aline Chrétien, 1936-2020:
"Both of us came to know Aline Chrétien (née Chaîné) well, one of us for almost 50 years, one for 30 years. Getting to know Aline Chrétien was an immense privilege in itself and part of the privilege we had of working for Jean Chrétien both before and during his decade in office as prime minister of Canada. We went in as colleagues; we came out — along with all the other alumni of our office — as family and as friends. And, inevitably — and happily — as part of the extended Chrétien family."
