Marcel J. Lussier showed up at the Loto-Québec offices this morning to claim his prize.

A great lottery fan, the latter intends to carry out a dozen projects. Among other things, he would like to help an entrepreneur build prefabricated houses in Ukraine and open a center for people with autism, a cause that touches him personally.

But this retiree from Hydro-Québec also wants to take advantage of it by going on a cruise with his wife as the couple had planned before the pandemic.

"I will also go to Cuba to do research on Pierre Le Moyne d'Iberville", explains Mr. Lussier, a great history enthusiast who dreams of writing a book and even shooting a film on the explorer.

More details to come.
