“I have always read a lot, but above all philosophy, critical theory … In recent years I have started to read more fiction because politics is not only great ideas, but also human hearts and stories. I assume the fact that I am scandalously late for this. novel that has been on my pile for a long time. It is a biographical novel about immigration, social justice, French … The debates we have had in the last few weeks in Quebec. This novel raises the question of integration, of how to reconcile cultures of origin and nationals. Immigration is not just a matter of figures, statistics and great principles, but also of individual trajectories, of human beings in flesh and blood. I think that our debates on this delicate subject would be more constructive if we listened to people’s stories more. ”

“In 2012, Stéphane Gendron and I had epic and well-documented skirmishes. He has had a rather special career in recent years; he left the media world to radically change his life and now calls himself a leftist. In this essay, he questions our land occupation model. It is a book about the gap between the urban and the rural world, a topic that worries me a lot. I believe that such reflections are needed, it is necessary to re-establish the links between the Quebec of cities and rurality. I do not accept that we can no longer talk to each other or have a common social project in Quebec. If Stéphane and I have managed to be together, I think this is proof that we can be together in Quebec even if we have the impression that there are debates that separate us. ”

“When I was a kid, I was a huge Tintin fan. Since I was full of prejudices, comics had remained a thing for me when I was young, as a child. I went back to reading comics this year and discovering the absolutely incredible world of comics and graphic novels. I recently devoured a comic published by Écosociété on the tragedy of Lac-Mégantic based on the essay by Anne-Marie Saint-Cerny and I’m going to read Marc Tessier’s on René Lévesque, a nice big brick that several designers have collaborated on. That was also on my desk, but the debates of recent days on René Lévesque and his legacy, he who would have celebrated his 100And birthday this year, put it back on top of my pile. It’s a wonderful comic that I can’t wait to read, a vacation project with my 3 month old daughter in her arms! ”
