    The mp caquiste Jean-François Roberge has found an original way and fun to talk politics with the people of his county.

    In addition to the invite to chat with him over a beer during an activity non-partisan at Bedondaine and Tummies Round, the member for Chambly has also designed a game company and provide it exclusively to people who will be displaced!

    “It’s exclusive! As you said, you had to be there! This is a limited edition! It does not intend to distribute it in other ways than directly in the hands of people who will be attending. The idea is to encourage participation and meet the world! We are going to make it to la bonne franquette and I think people respond to the call. They have the taste to come have a beer with their member of parliament and I think they are curious : “But what is this game?” I think we pique the curiosity also with the announcement that an edition of the game will be given to each person,” he said.

    Entitled “Political card”, this quiz on the political news of the year was designed by the member and his staff in order to get people to talk about politics, “but in a framework that is not too serious”.

    “We tested all kinds of ways and formulas to go to the meeting of the people to initiate positive discussion, and playful, and then fell on the idea of the quiz. When we constructed the questions, we wanted there to be a little wink. This may or may be not joke worthy of a stand-up comedian, but we didn’t want to be taken seriously. It was done in the spirit of the Holiday season. We wanted people to have fun”, he explains.

    Here are some examples of questions of this game that is non-partisan!

    This is not the first time that Jean-François Roberge activities to be non-partisan and “à la bonne franquette” with the aim of bringing together the people of his county, and especially to focus the discussion with his constituents.

    “I think that all mps have the advantage to be open to the population as the unemployed, workers, entrepreneurs, the mayors and the presidents of the chamber of commerce. Everyone is part of the company. When one is a member, is a member of all the world. It is not true that mps and politicians are a race apart. It is in the real world, simply,” the one who organises BBQ and racing, non-timed that attract hundreds of people annually.
