Quebec Solidaire: Nadeau-Dubois and Climate Change

quebec solidaire: Marissal is trying to pry the seat from Jean-Francois Lisee, the leader of the PQ. Earlier in the day, Nadeau-Dubois was in the riding of Laurier-Dorion with fellow co-spokesperson Manon Masse, according to CTV. It's the riding vacated by former Liberal MNA Gerry Sklavounos, who resigned from caucus following sexual misconduct allegations. Party co-spokesperson Gabriel Nadeau-Dubois was in Rosemont with Vincent Marissal, a former La Presse reporter running under the Quebec Solidaire banner. Masse and Nadeau-Dubois said that the environment and climate change are at the top of their agenda. Quebec Solidaire is the youngest of the political parties in this election, with the average candidate being 41 years old. 53 percent of its candidates are female, and 10 percent are visible minorities, both the highest among the parties. They also promised free education for Quebecers, and an increase to the minimum wage. ( As reported in the news.
