Here’s an event that could interest our members!
The British Association of Canadian Studies programme, hosted online by the University College London (UCL) Institute of the Americas, will be taking place once a month, on Tuesday evenings from 6.00pm to 7.30pm (UK time).
Our first event on Tuesday 18 October at 6.00pm will be a panel discussion on the Quebec elections that took place on Monday 3 October.
François Legault, the Premier of Quebec, and his party, Coalition Avenir Québec (CAQ), increased their number of seats in the 125-seat Quebec National Assembly from 74 at the time of the last election in October 2018 to 90 in October 2022.
The Quebec Liberals, led by Dominique Anglade, saw their number of seats decrease from 31 in 2018 to 21, while Québec Solidaire increased from 10 to 11 seats and the Parti Québécois fell from 10 seats to only 3.
Why did François Legault and the CAQ triumph in the elections and what does their victory mean for Quebec and the rest of Canada?
A panel of distinguished speakers based in Quebec, the UK and the US will discuss the outcome of the Quebec election of 3 October 2022, followed by a Q and A with members of the online audience.
The panel includes Dr. James Kennedy (Edinburgh University), Dr. Christopher Kirkey (SUNY Plattsburgh) and Dr. Jocelyn Létourneau (Laval University). The event is chaired by Dr. Tony McCulloch (UCL Institute of the Americas).
Tickets are free but registration via Eventbrite is required in order to be sent the Zoom link to the event.
Registered attendees via Eventbrite will be sent a Zoom link on Monday 17 October
