A life of science

by Caleb Nickerson

Tucked away off of chemin Kawartha in Breckenridge sits the home of Raymond Desjardins and his wife, Anne. If you saw him walking up the street, you could be forgiven for mistaking Desjardins for any other senior citizen on the block, but that presumption would be way off the mark.
Behind the kindly eyes and unassuming tone, is the mind of an internationally recognized academic and one of Canada’s foremost research scientists, specializing in the field of micrometeorology and climate change. On March 14, Dr. Desjardins became a Member of the Order of Canada at a ceremony with Governor General Julie Payette, in recognition of his lifetime of research.
