The Jean-Marie Fecteau Prize
Daniel Ross, « “Vive la vélorution !” : Le Monde à bicyclette et les origines du mouvement cycliste à Montréal, 1975-1980 ». Bulletin d’histoire politique, vol. 23, n° 2, 2015.
In his article on citizen mobilisations in Montreal, Ross maintains that the bicycle is a tool of resistance and political mobilization. Attentive to the political context of the 1970s at the municipal level, the author discusses the various reactions of the actors (politicians, activists, journalists) towards this mode of transportation and towards public transit in general.
