Henri Bourassa (1862-1952), journalist, politician and nationalist, was the founder of the French language newspaper Le Devoir . Bourassa opposed Canadian involvement in foreign military adventures, and inspired the growth of a vigorous nationalism in Québec.
On September 4, 1968, Canada Post Office issued a stamp commemorating the centennial of Henri Bourassa's birth.
