Philippe Schnobb

Philippe Schnobb is the chairperson of the board of directors of the Société de transport de Montréal (STM), and represents transit users on the Board. Since his appointment in 2013, he has introduced a change in the strategic directions of STM, to focus on improving the user experience. As an avid user of transit and active transportation, he is very familiar with the many combinations of integrated mobility.

Mr. Schnobb also chairs the board of directors of the Association du transport urbain du Québec (ATUQ) which is comprised of Québec’s nine transit agencies and is an observer-member of the BIXI board of directors.

As a Radio-Canada journalist for 27 years, one of his responsibilities was municipal affairs and he often covered public transportation issues. He is also author of the book “Faire-part pour mariages forcés” published by Lanctôt in 2001, at the time of the municipal mergers.

His professional life led him to work at several Radio-Canada regional stations. He studied history and communications at the University of Ottawa, the Faculté St-Jean (Edmonton) and UQAM. He was secretary-treasurer and member of the executive committee of the Fédération professionnelle des journalistes du Québec (FPJQ) from December 2002 to November 2010.

 

Jean-Paul Riopelle
The arrival of this piece by Jean-Paul Riopelle to the Quartier international raised questions but it is undeniable that this location placed it in the limelight in a spectacular fashion. The permanent installation and the circle of fire that illuminates at night allow visitors from around the world to appreciate this great artist.
Alexander Calder
This work by Calder has become one of the symbols of Montréal. Its transfer to the waterfront, from which it greets the city, has created an area for people, young and old, who didn’t experience Expo67, to perpetuate the idea of bringing together people at Man and His World, especially on Sunday afternoons in the summer.
Adrien Lucca
One of my lesser-known activities as chair of the STM board of directors is to be part of the committees that choose new artwork for the métro. It’s a very great privilege to be part of the growth of this magnificent collection. Renovation of the Place-d’Armes station was the impetus for a cultural exchange that underlined both the Montréal métro’s 50th anniversary and the Brussels subway system’s 40 years. This work, by Belgian Adrien Lucca, titled Soleil de minuit was a hands-down favourite for the jury and it is still one of mine each time I pass through this station. The piece was unveiled as part of celebrations for Montréal’s 375th anniversary. It fits in so well in its environment that it seems like we are watching a sunrise that has been there since 1966!
Pierre Gaboriau, Pierre Osterrath
The métro’s initial builders had the brilliant idea of making it a public art gallery. Originally, artists were commissioned to reflect the history of Montréal. Some did so in a very realistic manner. Examples include Les Patriotes de 1837-1838 by Jean Cartier and George Juhasz in the Papineau station, and Nicolas Sollogoub’s contribution, La vie à Montréal au XIXe siècle, in the McGill station. Others provided an impressionistic note, such as Frédéric Back, whose Histoire de la musique à Montréal is located in the Place-des-Arts station. It was only with the arrival of Jean-Paul Mousseau and, especially, Marcelle Ferron that abstract art appeared in the métro collection. The piece I’ve chosen is by Pierre Gaboriau, son of Robert LaPalme. Together with Pierre Osterrath, he designed the Hommage aux fondateurs de la ville de Montréal for the tympanum wall of the Green line platform in the Berri-De Montigny station (now known as Berri-UQAM). The artwork was recently restored and it’s worth letting a couple of trains go by so as to take the time to appreciate all its details.
Michel Goulet
This work by Michel Goulet is one of my favourites because I see it almost every day. As a resident of rue Saint-Hubert in the Plateau, I cross place Roy to go to the grocery store, and parc Lafontaine to run or to borrow a BIXI. Goulet’s artwork, with its poetic chairs, is installed in the plaza, transforming the walk to a grocery store into a lyrical journey.
