Jean Lapierre  (CTV News)

A new Quebec ferry will be renamed after a former CJAD 800 political commentator who died in a plane crash.

The ferry for Les Îles-de-la-Madeleine will be renamed in honour of Jean Lapierre.

The former broadcaster and politician died on the island in 2016  along with six other people.

A temporary ferry is in service at the moment, while the new one's being built.

It should be ready for 2026.
