The People Project: sketch artist Delphine Bergeron

Published on: March 1, 2018 | Last Updated: March 1, 2018 1:40 PM EST

More than 4 million people live in cosmopolitan Montreal and its suburbs.

In a new series of videos called The People Project, Montreal Gazette reporters Christopher Curtis and Catherine Solyom profile some of the many characters who call the city home and make the city hum.

Delphine Bergeron has been covering the Montreal courthouse for 10 years, not with a pen and paper or a TV news camera, but with her sketchpad and paints.

With cameras still forbidden inside the halls of justice, she tells us what it’s like to be the public’s eye in the courtroom, drawing everyone from infamous doctor Guy Turcotte to convicted murderer Luka Magnotta — sometimes with only a few minutes to capture the scene.
