  • Memorial – After my summer vacation in the Gaspésie in 2013, I stopped at Les Méchins to pay my respects to Cpl Blais. She was on the same rotation as my son. I was stunned by what the municipality of Les Méchins had done to honour Cpl. Blais. This memorial is located along Route 132 and is illuminated at night. You can't ask for more from a small municipality. Thank you Les Méchins for what you have done. Richard Arial (adj ret)
