ADQ to choose leader in 2010


The GazetteMarch 24, 2009

The Action démocratique du Québec will choose a new leader to replace Mario Dumont at the beginning of February 2010.

Party president Mario Charpentier said yesterday all party members will vote, probably by telephone, as the Parti Québécois did in 2005.

Candidates must make a $15,000 deposit to run and must have at least 1,000 signatures, with at least 60 in each of Quebec's 12 regions. The nomination deadline is Sept. 22. To vote, members must acquire an membership card by Jan. 25, 2010.

Caire first ADQ candidate off mark


By KEVIN DOUGHERTY, The GazetteMarch 25, 2009

Éric Caire, the Action démocratique du Québec health critic, is the first candidate to announce he will seek the party leadership.

François Bonnardel, the ADQ finance critic, said yesterday he has still not made his final decision.

"We will take a few more days," he said. "I'm not running to be president of the Knights of Columbus."

The party plans a February 2010 leadership choice.

All ADQ members will vote by telephone for a new leader, replacing Mario Dumont, who stepped down after the party went from 41 seats to seven in the Dec. 8 election.

Caire said he told Dumont he was running and Dumont wished him luck.

"When a team loses its best player, the rest of the team has to work harder," Caire said.

And his greatest challenge will be explaining ADQ policies.

Caire said the ADQ plan to abolish school boards is worth considering, as is his idea of a mixed public-private health-care system, like that in France.

Caire also wants to explain the party's autonomy position, which he said is neither separatist nor federalist, seeking a new arrangement for Quebec within Canada.

It'll be interesting to see if the ADQ survives the next election or fades away...

It will be interesting. But Quebec is known for their fringe parties that come and then just disappear. It had really become a two party province.

Ya, the left wing party and the ultra left wing party. Oh ya, and then there's the Quebec Solitaire party for all those separatists who think the PQ isn't quite left wing enough. In other news, 336 separatists just lost their jobs.

( was this new poll for quebec put out , can't get it to copy right , )

March 26 , 2009

Liberals tumble

PQ 40 % Lib 33% ADQ 10 % Quebec solitare 8 %

liberals down 10 % , PQ up 5 % , only 37 % satisfied with the government , this seems to be the result of a big deficit and pension fund problems . the pq seems to be benefiting most from the liberals problems not the adq much at the moment .

Support builds for ADQ's Taillon


By KEVIN DOUGHERTY, The GazetteApril 21, 2009

François Bonnardel, who was preparing his own bid for the Action démocratique du Québec leadership, has thrown his support instead to Gilles Taillon.

Taillon, who gained a public profile as head of the Conseil du patronat du Québec employers' lobby, lost his seat in the 2008 election.

At 63, he announced he was staying with the ADQ but would not run again. "At my age you can't say, 'until next time,' " he said then. "That was my last try in politics."

But with Éric Caire, the party's health critic, and Christian Lévesque, defeated in his Lévis riding on Dec. 8, declaring their candidacy, Taillon has been quietly organizing his own run.

The ADQ leadership became vacant when Mario Dumont resigned after his party strength fell from 41 seats and official opposition status to seven seats and near obscurity in the National Assembly.

Bonnardel is 41, articulate and seemed like a breath of fresh air for the ADQ. Of the seven ADQ MNAs elected on Dec. 8, only Bonnardel and Dumont ran in ridings outside the greater Quebec City region.

Bonnardel, a used car dealer in Cowansville before his political career, was first elected in the Eastern Townships riding of Shefford in 2007 and held the riding in the last election, resisting the anti-ADQ tide.

Bonnardel and Linda Lapointe, who lost her seat as the ADQ MNA in the Groulx riding north of Laval, announced yesterday they would be co-campaign chairpersons should Taillon choose to run.

"Mr. Taillon has important political experience," Bonnardel told Quebec City reporters.
