NDP Active in Quebec, says ThibodeauSave this online in Del.icio.us. [?] Vote For this Post
A few days back I was musing about whether the NDP even realized Quebec was part of Canada. It appears the country's socialist party does indeed realize, and is working to spread the word that the NDP cares about Quebec. The following is a press release from Nicolas Thibodeau, the NDP's defeated candidate in the riding of Mount Royal, and the NDP. It is followed by a letter from Thibodeau concerning the NDP's upcoming National Convention, which will be held here in Quebec, and NDP politics in general. The press release is directly translated from the French, it appears, which would explain the English mistakes.
Against Hiking Age of Consent
Last week-end [April 16; this is slightly old] the General Council of the NDP Quebec Section was held at UQTR. Nicolas R. Thibodeau, candidate in the last federal elections and president of the Mount Royal NDP Association met with Jack Layton and M. Pierre Ducasse, the representant [sic] of the NDP for Quebec.
Mr. Thibodeau took time to adress the delicate issues of age of consentent [sic] and of the present canadian [sic] military policies regarding our participation in NORAD. Furthermore, the Mount Royal delegation took a strong stand to push sustainable environmental measures for all future NDP events. It is Mr. Thibodeau's stand that democracy and surrounding activities should be practiced in a responsible way in every possible way. The youth representant [sic] of the NDP in Mount Royal, Christel Marchand, took part in many discussion [sic] surrounding the youth preoccupations in environment and education.
In the next several months, Nicolas R. Thibodeau will be revisiting [sic] Mount Royal schools and youth organization to actively do what politicians should do : listen. He will seek the answers relatively [sic] to the absentees of the last elections, the environmental responsability [sic] of Canada and in regards to the Conservative measures to hike the age of consent. Hence [sic], he will try to get the citizen's feedback on how to change the present trend of low participation at [in] the election in Canada...
Personal letter from Thibodeau to people who showed interest in the NDP last election follows. Note, it's not 'support', it's 'soutien'. Support is an anglicisme...
