Teach economics in high school, and not compulsory saving

Two thirds of all Québécois want the government to bring in a compulsory savings plan. They doubt that the public pension plans can provide them with an acceptable level of income when they retire (see reference). So, yet again, the citizens want to be mothered by the government, after complaining they pay too much tax. How do you think governments will cut back their spending and...

Yes to a Department for the Status of Men

The status of men needs to be improved in Quebec (see reference to J. Jacques Samson’s column). This is one of the party’s fundamental values.
Men are doing very poorly in Quebec. And we’re not against women! The situation is very serious because it affects half the population. This isn’t just an opinion. The facts are available to prove it. We have the support of many women who care about ...

The PQ’s gift to Philippe Couillard in Viau: more shenanigans from the old parties

Pauline Marois has offered not to run a PQ candidate against Philippe Couillard if he runs in Viau for the by-election that may soon be called. This practice of letting a candidate run unopposed is a direct attack on democracy and shows disrespect for PQ voters, who will be deprived of the possibility of supporting their own party. It’s certainly not by this kind of hanky-panky that old parties like the Parti Québécois will improve the way politics is seen and get more people to vote.

Health care costs and bonuses unjustified. Time to clean house – Press release

Here’s another example that has convinced Équipe autonomiste of the need to correct the way hospitals are run by management and unions.

Did you know that on top of night-shift, evening-shift, and weekend bonuses, there are bonuses for critical care? (ref. 1 page 9 and ref. 2). When a respiratory therapist in an intensive care unit or an emergency department is assigned a patient, this employee is entitled to ...

Congratulations to Daniel Beaulieu for his citizen involvement in municipal politics

Équipe autonomiste wishes to congratulate Daniel Beaulieu for his courage and determination. He decided to get actively involved in politics despite the scandals and the widespread disillusionment with politicians at all levels. Beaulieu is acting on his convictions and is taking part in the development of his city by creating a new municipal party: l'Alliance de Québec (see reference below), a party that will convey his values and vision of city management. His strategy is to develop a solid opposition and get Mayor Labeaume to do a better job. It seems a very laudable strategy, since it has proven itself on the provincial and federal levels when minority governments have had to...

Protect our children and their fathers from the shortcomings of Quebec’s legal system

Currently, our legal system lets women destroy the lives of their children and their ex-husbands without being punished. When a woman files a conjugal violence complaint, the police MUST arrest the man without asking any questions, regardless of whether the complaint is founded or not. This is the procedure required by the conjugal violence intervention policy that has been in effect since 1995 (ref. 1). Thus, each year, thousands of innocent fathers are arrested in front of their children and...

Let’s select immigrants according to their values and not their language

When selecting immigrants, the Parti Québécois wants to give even more importance to the ability to speak French (ref. 1). Équipe autonomiste disapproves of this decision and feels it’s easier to teach French to an immigrant who has the same values as we do than to change the mentality of a French-speaking immigrant whose values are CONTRARY to our own. Our party has a proposal on this subject (ref. 2). Furthermore, we refuse to be smeared as racists because...


The government has not only an economic role but also a moral and ideological one. It must therefore promote socially responsible values in addition to managing public finances properly. Équipe Autonomiste has chosen its core values. The Équipe Autonomiste platform, which will be developed with a view to improving Quebec’s situation, must without exception comply with the following values:

1- Personal, collective and governmental responsibility.
The autonomy of the province, within Canada, requires personal autonomy.


Équipe autonomiste was founded by citizens who wish to improve Quebec’s situation by doing politics differently and by giving everyone a chance to contribute to this effort. For us, governing means making choices for the good of society, even unpopular ones that require sacrifices. For us, social justice means that each citizen contributes to the advancement of society to the best of his or her abilities and that society adequately but solely helps the truly needy.
