Quebec's biggest rock band is also a custodian of the landscape. By donating a percentage of each ticket sold to their foundation, The Cowboys Fringants have been able to support several environmental organizations over the past three years. It doesn't hurt that their music can pack the Bell Centre twice over, and their dedication to protecting Quebec's natural resources is proof that music can change the world. Meet JÉRÔME DUPRAS as he talks about what his band has done to make a difference.
