From the ivory tower to the halls of power: Jean-Yves Duclos - Life in QuebecFriday, April 21, 2017
October 2015 election in the downtown riding of Québec. He is the first Liberal from the area to be at the centre of federal power since 1983, when the late Gilles Lamontagne, a former mayor of Québec City, served under Pierre Trudeau.It had been a good plan, worked out by a patient staffer in the minister’s office, allowing time to chat between caucus meetings, a sit-down lunch in Duclos’ office, a visit to his office at the Ministry of Families, Children and Social Development in Gatineau after question period, and an afternoon discussion session with university students.Then this tweet, at 11:31 p.m. on Sunday, January 29: J’annule toutes mes activités prévues demain et je rentre à Québec. Je devais être de retour à la Chambre des Communes mais je serai dans ma ville, à vos côtés. Soyons forts et unis face à la peur . If there ever was an eloquent example of how rapidly and dramatically the lives of public officials can change, this was it. A murderous rampage against innocent people gathering in prayer, a city in shock and grief, a community and nation stirred to compassion and solidarity; the eyes of the world were on Québec City, and Duclos and other elected officials were suddenly the public face of a city in crisis.Duclos first learned of the shooting at the Centre culturel islamique de Québec via a text from his daughter. With Parliament set to reconvene after the Christmas break, the tragedy in the city’s Ste-Foy neighbourhood had suddenly seized the attention of the nation.“Immediately I felt it was our entire community that was being hit, as opposed to one community or region, so it was extremely obvious to me we needed to be close together,” he sa...

Convoy evokes Canadian pride in North Bay - Vermilion StandardWednesday, March 27, 2019
Monday afternoon.Caron, of North Bay, was waiting in the parking lot at Motion Canada on Gormanville Road for almost 100 vehicles, from small cars to big rigs, to pull in on their journey from Alberta to Parliament Hill with a message for federal politicians.

"We want to fight for our freedoms and our rights. We want fair government.""We are watching Justin Trudeau slowly strip away every right we had," Sarah Zaldinger, of Timmins, said as about two dozen supporters waited for the convoy to arrive, sharing updates on when the parade would roll into town."He is stripping the future of my children and their children and their children," Zaldinger said. "They are being set up for failure. Their rights, their future, will all be destroyed if we don't stand up now."Although she was not part of the convoy to North Bay, Zaldinger was going to join it Tuesday morning for the rally in Ottawa as part of her own objective of "direct democracy."And direct democracy is possible, she said.Zaldinger pointed to a recent Amber Alert sent to cellphone users across the province ...
