Jacques Parizeau Was One of the Foremost Builders of Modern Quebec

Jacques Parizeau was Quebec Premier for merely 16 months, but he was a great servant of the state and, above all, one of the foremost builders of modern Quebec. He was one of the founding members of Parti québécois in 1968-1969, alongside Mr. Lévesque who had just stormed out of the Quebec Liberal Party. "Monsieur," as everyone called him, was a statesman; he truly had the interest of the public at heart in the noblest sense of the expression. The interest of the state came before his own. That is something that is becoming extremely rare in politics nowadays.

HuffPost Quebec Is Here to Stay

I firmly believe that HuffPost's presence contributed to a greater diversity of ideas and opinions in Quebec. Quebecers are better informed than they were 12 months ago. They have one more reliable and objective source of information. HuffPost is there when it matters.
