We told you about it a little over three weeks ago, a veteran journalist made a strong move.

Renowned Montreal Gazette reporter Pat Hickey probably changed the life of a younger journalist.

Hickey voluntarily decided to retire in order to save a younger reporter's job after his employer made cuts.

"Pat Hickey took it upon himself to announce his retirement voluntarily, in order to literally save a younger person's job.


Let's hope other veteran newsroom employees do the same. It's time." - Jack Todd

The announcement was made in late January, but Hickey had a few more weeks to stay on the job before officially bowing out.

Tomorrow, however, will officially be his last day.

It is a big piece that will leave the "beat" of the CH, and we would like to salute once again his gesture.

Tomorrow, after the game between the Habs and the Ottawa Senators, Hickey will officially retire.

A stunning career

We wish him well in his retirement and sincerely thank him for his hard work over the years.

Well done, Pat Hickey!

Tomorrow, our friend Pat Hickey will cover his last Canadiens game. At 77 years old, a well-deserved retirement awaits him after a great career of more than fifty years.

- Luc Gélinas, RDS
