Leadership of the Quebec Liberal Party…

September 30, 2012

By Bernard Bujold (LeStudio1.com) – 
Pierre Moreau (54) will be officially a candidate for the leadership of the Liberal Party of Quebec and he will announce it Monday at 11 am on October 1st in his riding of Châteauguay. 
Moreau was Transport Minister in the government of Jean Charest. He is a lawyer and he was noted in 2000 when he represented the cities opposite to the municipal mergers. He was elected in 2003 and he says he is convinced that he can win the liberal race. 
According to political observers, the favorite Liberal leader would be ex-Health Minister Philippe Couillard (55 years). The other candidate officially nominated is former Finance Minister Raymond Bachand (65 years old on October 22) while there are serious rumors that Line Beauchamp (49 years), former Minister of Education will be in the race. Beauchamp would obviously benefit from the support of her husband Pierre Bibeau, a highly respected veteran in the Quebec Liberal Party. 
Currently, it is the former Justice Minister Jean-Marc Fournier who holds the interim leadership of the party and the Official opposition until the election by the delegates of a successor to Jean Charest in the early 2013. The urgency of a permanent Liberal leader is due to the possibility of a reversal of the current Government of Quebec at the National Assembly led by Pauline Marois minority with only 52 seats against 50 for the Liberals. A reversal would mean a general election…

Justin Trudeau will be a candidate for the leadership of the Liberal Party of Canada and he will announce his decision next Tuesday 2 October.

The former political reporter Daniel Lessard has launched Volume 2 of his novel under the title of LA REVENANTE. A book whose story unfolds in the Beauce region in the 1940s and where the female character featured decides to run for mayor of the village… The story is interesting and brings into focus the role of women in politics and especially the challenge she has faced to get there as a woman.

President of Iran Mahmoud Ahmadineja (56 years) is the center of media attention in North America where he is visiting in New York since Monday for the annual UN (United Nations). He gave several interviews including one with Pier Morgan on CNN. The President of Iran is an intellectual who is an engineer by training and has taught at the University. It is very clever to reporters and his interview with CNN was a demonstration of his skills…

The new novel by Denis Monette, “LES DÉLAISSÉES”, is worthy of the great American novels and Europe. This book deserves to become a TV series or a movie! Great scenario and extraordinary texts. 
In summary, this is a story mid-polar and mid-romance where the main character will seduce four randomly selected women in Montreal, Moncton, Halifax and Toronto to make them suffer mentally to avenge injustices suffered in his personal life. The characters are well researched as the cities where the action takes place. We must congratulate the author Denis Monette and we might add that this is one of his best novels. Monette says that his characters are pure fiction, but it is hard to believe his confession so the story is realistic. 
If there is a conclusion to the story of the novel is that there are people in society who will sometimes show great wickedness, and they will choose their victims at random. We must also conclude that it is better not to be too naive to face life events and if a proposal seems to be an impossible dream and worthy of a novel, this is probably the case. In real life, the prince does not exist, love is blinding and nastiness made by people leading a double life does exist! Congratulations to Denis Monette!
