Montreal Gazette Column

"Monique Dykstra’s Montreal" was a weekly column in the Montreal Gazette that featured ordinary people in Montreal.

Each week, Monique set out to find someone with a great passion for something - it didn't matter what it was - just that the person had to be on fire about something.

The column ran for four years, and featured everyone from belly dancers to gravestone salesmen, from cloistered nuns to legendary strongman, Great Antonio (first photo, below).
