A plan to find the identity of the Liberal Party of Quebec

According to our information, the group will have 14 members. It will be co-founded with former journalist André Pratte and MP Madwa-Nika Cadet.

The working group must answer four questions:

  • What does it mean to be a Liberal in Quebec in 2023?
  • What is the place of the PLQ in the new political spectrum?
  • What are the defining principles of liberalism in the 21st century that the QLP could draw inspiration from and promote?
  • How can these principles be broken down into concrete orientations to meet the aspirations of Quebecers?
  • Committee members

    Fourteen people, seven women and seven men, make up the council. Among them are certain well-known people, such as former ministers, but lesser-known actors.

    In addition to co-chairs André Pratte and Madwa-Nika Cadet, the committee includes 12 other members:

  • former ministers Peter Arcand, Geoffrey Kelley, Lucie Charlebois and Johannes D’Amours;
  • the son of former minister Jean Charest, Antoine Dionne-Charest;
  • Laurent Lefebvre and William Baril, from the PLQ youth committee;
  • Catharina Boundjia and Claude Laroche, from the political committee of the PLQ;
  • Émilie Nadeau, Noémie Fiset Tremblay and Valerie Pomerleau, activists.
  • According to our information, the report of the commission is expected in the case and should be presented to the activist party members in the meeting.

    Interesting fact: the office of the PLQ decided to give leeway to the next leader by deciding not to bind the conclusions and recommendations of the report on the Liberal Party of Quebec.

    A Claude Ryan effect?

    The PLQ received only 14% of the vote in the last election, and a recent poll shows only 4% support among Francophones.

    The need to reach voters outside of Montreal is clear.

    According to our information, the party believes these poor results are largely based on confusion about their identity.

    By creating this project, he hopes the process will move members and supporters, as did the publication of the book Good and Modern Quebec, by Claude Ryan, in 2002.

    The book helped to define the fundamental values ​​of the party a few months before the elections that brought Jean Charest to power.
