Not surprisingly, young (20 years old) Léo Bureau-Blouin has hooked his political chariot to the Parti Québécois. He will be running, in Laval, againts a cabinet minister involved in the negociations with the L. B-B. led students in last session,s class boycott in CEGEPS, 14 out of 48, and a few university faculties, mostly in the French sector.
The symbol of the fight is a red felt square. Many P.Q. members wore it even at the Assemblée Nationale sittings. When Mme Marois and L. B-B. announced his candidacy, they had shed the red square. You don't head into an election wearing a symbol rejected by almost 70% of the population, do you now?
