Quebec's right wing gathers at 'historic' meeting
QUEBEC — Quebec's version of the right-wing U.S. Tea Party was brewing a fresh approach to political thinking as it gathered in the provincial capital on Saturday.

More than 400 people are attending the meeting organized by the new political movement Reseau Liberte-Quebec.

Maxime Bernier, who was a minister in Prime Minister Stephen Harper's cabinet, said the meeting marks a turning point in Quebec's history.

"If you look in the past what we had in Quebec, (was) a lot of people who believe in socialism, who believe in big government," he said.

"And now you have people who believe in less government, who believe in more freedom, and who think we have too much government on our back and too much government in our pocket."

Though the new party does not yet have a platform or a name, it has already declared its intention to set aside the issue of Quebec separation to focus on economic matters.

A poll released last week suggested the hypothetical new party would beat both the Liberals and the Parti Quebecois.

Johanne Marcotte, co-founder of Reseau Liberte-Quebec, said it's time to do away with the "interventionist" style of government espoused by both the Parti Quebecois and the ruling Liberals.

"More and more of the population wants freedom of choice," she said.

Quebec has become bogged down by powerful unions and a culture of dependency on the state, she said.

Tasha Kheiridden and Ezra Levant are among the conservative analysts and commentators at the event.

Kory Teneycke, the former spokesman for Prime Minister Stephen Harper, was scheduled to appear but had to bow out.


That's a fiscal conservative movement. Nothing about gay marriage or abortion. They want to change the economic situation in Quebec so that we are not so dependant of the ROC to live.

Don't say it's not a good thing !

Now, we have to fight with the media that already qualified the movement of "radical/far right"....

There a good video in the article that I could not post. They are French people but they are speaking English for CTV :wink:

Well, hope springs eternal. I haven't been to Quebec for a decade but the newspapers present them as a tight group of socialists.

Well, we will see. Québec needs some new direction and it won't come from Marois.
Heaven help anyone who can't speak french if her government is elected.

It probably would be nice for Quebecers to have options other than "to seperate or not to seperate" when they vote.

I have a question for posters from Quebec. I have little experience with Quebecers, have never talked to a seperatist but can tell you from here in Toronto they are pissed. They park their federal vote with the Bloc. It's the long term economy as much as the language. A lot of them are not doing well or are insecure financially. If they were prosperpous they would vote differently. The province is only seven million, they are isolated by the language and the get no respect so they park their vote. Is that anywhere near right?

I believe Pualine is a dangerous (nut bar) woman. I have heard several speeches and when Charest put through bill 104 last week she went into a rage in the Assemblée Nationale. She truly is a xenophobe who would have English in any form abolished ( as well as other languages) if she could . The PQ who follow and support her vision are also dangerous. She would make examinations so stringently difficult for anyone but a pur laine to pass. They are a party of delusional ideation and be far worse than any we have seen.

I don't find her so noxious. Like many Péquistes, she's a bit of a nut job, but she has really said nothing that I find to be 'dangerous'. I watched the special session at the Assemblée nationale as well, and I didn't get any hate vibes. They just want to make sure people can't buy their way into the public English school system, which exists for the true anglophone minority and not for immigrants. Immigrant children go to the normal public school which, naturally, is in French. If they wanted their children to go to school in English so badly then they can either pay for it, or they could have moved to an English speaking province (there are nine of them out of ten). Not a complicated situation. You can't move to Sweden and expect Swedish taxpayers to put your kid through school in English... School will naturally be in Swedish. The same is true everywhere, including Quebec. It's normal.
