    The co-spokesperson of Québec solidaire, Manon Massé, a night to the cause of women in Quebec by saying that the politicians do not improve women’s conditions, pounded the Parti québécois.

    Jean-François Lisée has been flayed by about virulent of Manon Massé in the place of the politicians published in The line of Duty last week.

    She blames the men in power to not be in a hurry to improve the lot women’s collective in Quebec since 30 years.

    “This is not excluding his allies, this is not denying his covenants, it is not by insulting those who have made it so that there are gains for women that we will advance the cause of women”, has pestered the leader of the PQ.

    In this missive, the co-spokesperson for QS claims that this “boy’s club” that is subscribed to be able to let the nurses run out and kill themselves to the task, for peanuts.”

    “Chefs like Philippe Couillard, François Legault and Jean-François Lisée, are part of this gang for too long to successfully make us believe they are committed to us to other moments in the election campaign,” he wrote.

    Harm to women

    These allegations have stung to the quick the leader of the PQ, Jean-François Lisée, claiming that his political opponent “night to the cause of women”.

    “It is a letter that accuses all men not to accompany the struggles of women and LGBT people towards more equality and it is deeply shocking. It is insulting”, said the head of the PQ.

    He gives the example of his former patron, Jacques Parizeau and Lucien Bouchard, who fought for pay equity and family-friendly policies with the support of the parliamentary women and women’s groups.

    “To be told by Mrs. Massé that all of these people, since 30 years, are part of a clique of boy’s club, that harms the cause of women”, argued the head of the parti québecois.


    Always in a letter to the daily Le Devoir, Jennifer Drouin, the candidate of the PQ, who will try to beat Manon Massé in Sainte-Marie–Saint-Jacques in the next elections, said it was estomaquée to read the charge of anti-men mp.

    Also a feminist and a lesbian, she points out that “all the gains achieved by women, in Québec, as elsewhere in the world, have been made by the alliance of feminists with men, reformist and progressive”.
