If several deputies to the National Assembly had announced that they were leaving political life, MMe Massey wants to continue to represent St.-Mary-St.-Jacques voters in Montreal. The next day after the nomination was confirmed as a candidate, the MP said in an interview, “The work I wanted to do on the ground has not been completed.
Quebec Solidair Deputation Dean, Mrs.Me Massey also wants to support new candidates who will receive party colors. “I want to work together to bring a large number of supporters to the National Assembly.”
MMe Massey was first elected in 2014. This is her fifth time as a Left Party candidate. At the time, the party had only three deputies and no parliamentary group status. The party now has 10 deputies.
Last June, Mr.Me Massey declared that Quebec Solidarity should not be the parliamentary leader in a way that could lead to Gabriel Nadeau-Dubois. “I’m in a role that makes me tired, sometimes in a role that stops me,” she says.
The deputy assured her that she “still has the power” to play politics as a deputy and co-spokesperson for the party. “After handing over the baton to Gabriel as Parliamentary Leader, it has relieved me of the mental burden that I have endured so much. It gives me more energy to do my job as an MP.”
MMe Massey believes MPs have the power to change things. She believes her influence has influenced the government’s decision to put an end to the exploration and exploitation of hydrocarbons. “One thing that is always clear is that the role of the legislature is to empower one person. ⁇
