Solidarity Quebec Victory

Solidarite Quebec  has won a seat in the Quebec election. Although this is

only one seat this indicates a growing radicalization. The QS is a party of
the social movements and rejects the neo-liberalism of the Parti Quebecois.
It is also more radical than the NDP and is the first new left-wing

I was surprised that a party as reactionary as ADQ, could have held power at all. It must have disguised its rightist stands.

Very good about Qu├ębec Solidaire.

Oh Gosh no! The ADQ never held power. Thankfully! The neoliberal PQ and PLQ were bad enough, we had a hell of a fight on our hands to try to prevent hospital closings under the PQ and the attacks on workers under the PLQ. But like its says in the IMT article, the labour leadership wimped out. I stood up at our union meeting and told the folks about what happened in 1972 and how we needed to consider those tactics again. Got a lot of applause. That was back in 2005, the year before I retired and left Quebec.

The QS is a definite step forward. I see its program as a step away from social democracy and a reaching toward socialism. Several members of my extended family are members and Francoise David is a family friend.
