MONTREAL - Former senator Jean-Louis Roux, who was forced to resign as Quebec lieutenant-governor after admitting he wore a Nazi swastika as a youngster, has died at the age of 90.
Roux's death on Thursday was confirmed by the Theatre du Nouveau Monde, which he helped found in 1951.
Roux had been a prominent member of Quebec's theatre community for decades before he was named a Companion of the Order of Canada in 1987.
Seven years later, then-prime minister Jean Chretien came calling and appointed him a senator.
