Calling all Conservative voters
Will the Aylmer Bulletin accept a two-line book review as a Letter to the Editor? If you will, I urge any voter considering to vote for the "new" Conservative Party of Quebec to at least look through a book, "Les Brutes et la Punaise", by Dominique Payette, who was a journalist and is now a professor at Laval. The book is about the "radios poubelles" (trash-radio) which dominate the Quebec City region. They feed a daily toxic mix of exaggeration, racism, anti-immigrant and mysogeny within a hard-right libertarian political program. The new leader and renovator of the provincial Conservatives was a leader of that world.
Just look through this book and check the footnotes for Mr Duhaime's name, quotations and activities. His Anti-Muslim and anti-Aboriginal statements are shocking -- but he wasn't running for office then. Don't be afraid of reading in French! Ms Payette's writing is clear and straightforward, even for the French-challenged among us, like me.
