A. Jean de GrandpréA. Jean de Grandpré
C.C., Q.C.

Albert Jean De Grandpré, lawyer, business executive (b at Montréal 14 Sept 1921). Educated at Collège Jean-de-Brébeuf (BA 1940) and McGill University (BLC 1943), he practised insurance law in Québec during 1943-66 before joining Bell Canada as general counsel. He became president in 1973 and chairman and CEO in 1976.

Always notable for his aggressive defence of company social interest and his aversion to government regulation, he devised a scheme in 1981-83 to reorganize Bell Canada, a telephone utility under the regulatory authority of the CRTC, into Bell Canada Enterprises Inc – a holding company that largely evaded that authority – in order to free the company for growth.
