Synopsis
It is the story of a Dutch self-made man (1864-1953) who, starting from scratch, managed to show his abilities as an entrepreneur and proved to be a great defender of social welfare in Canada. He was first involved in 1890 in the construction of the first Congo Railway line under Leopold II, King of the Belgians, before being sent to Canada in 1900 in Shawinigan to set up a paper mill, the Belgo, which would become the world's first pulp mill. As a philanthropist, he was dedicated to helping people by financing health and education. It is he who built with his wife, Berthe Lapôtre, the Biermans-Lapôtre Foundation at the Cité Universitaire de Paris to help with housing for students. He has financed Laval University in Quebec City and the University of Montreal as well as many charitable institutions in Belgium, France and Monaco where he is the founder of the Monegasque Red Cross.
