Speaker information

Professor Christopher Kirkey, Director of the Center for the Study of Canada, State University New York (Plattsburgh)

Professor Christopher Kirkey discusses the immediate results of the April 7 2014 election in Quebec. What effects, both short and long-term, can be expected from this electoral outcome? Was the rejection of the PQ simply the reflection of a poorly managed election campaign? More broadly, what does the April election suggest about the future of the PQ as a party, and its long held aspiration for political independence from Canada? Are there deeper, more significant societal and political changes afoot – changes that are altering the Quebec political landscape for future generations?
