We are very motivated. You see, we are going to change the political picture in Quebec.
Last May, the former PQ minister and former leader of the Black Cubacois Announced the establishment of this new independent political establishment It puts the climate crisis at the heart of its program.
Two issues that cannot be discussed, Ms. Warns Ouellet.
All members must directly support the formation of the Republic of Quebec in the first term to make themselves available to fight for climate justice. These two files are inseparable, She says.
She does not want her new political movement to clash with the same discussions that went on with the party Cubacois (PQ).
To question the sterile debates I have experienced in the past, the actual narratives of the parties, I think it is not very constructive and we will not align ourselves in these kinds of discussions, Says a politician who has twice competed for PQ leadership.
Martin uel Yellet believes she can distinguish herself from two other separatist structures, the Quebec Solidair and the PQ.
It’s completely different, She says.
Climate Quebec is an independent party dedicated to climate change. It’s nice to have an environment tab in the party program, but so far we ‘ve seen that not work.
The 52-year-old is leaving activists from other parties and banking on frustrated voters.
35% of people did not go to the polls in the 2018 elections. There is a very big political vacuum right now, and we are trying to target these people who are frustrated, Ms. Captures Ouellet.
At present, not wanting to specify the exact number, the leader said her party is already attracting several hundred members.
Establishment of Congress in November
Now that the party is officially registered in the DGEQ, the next step is to hold the first large meeting with the members. The founding congress is scheduled for November.
Meanwhile, party financing, which intends to field candidates in the 125 electoral districts of Quebec during the 2022 general election, will be a priority.
Now we have the authority of the DGEQ, because the organization of the campaign is going on, to submit 125 candidates across Quebec, it takes funding., Explains the chef.
In terms of the recruitment of candidates, Martin uel Yellet did not intend to attack the officers elected to the National Assembly.
I am not in this dynamic to bring people who are already in a political party elsewhere. They belong to a political party and it is very legal from them, She concluded.
