Summaries
Main Description
In this account first published in 1995, Parliamentary correspondent Manon Cornellier looks at the meteoric rise of the Bloc Québécois and its charismatic leader Lucien Bouchard. In only five short years, the Bloc grew from a tiny group of independent MPs to the official opposition in the House of Commons. Yet English-speaking Canadians continue to know little about the party's history, its ideas, how its politics differ from those of the Parti Québécois, or what role the party hopes to play in a sovereign Quebec. This book aims to fill that gap. The Blocis a concise and informative examination of one of the most remarkable developments in Canadian federal politics in the 1990s.
