Canada’s best source for informed, lively commentary and
analysis on the issues facing the country — and the world.


Issue 19 – Summer / Fall 2006

Inroads 19 takes us back to Pour un Québec lucide, the work of 12 prominent Quebeckers. It gave rise to a profound public debate: opposition centered on a counter-manifesto Pour un Québec solidaire signed by 35 left wing intellectuals and activists, a shortened version of which is found in the issue. In addition, we hear from two prominent authors of Pour un Québec lucide. André Pratte is editor of La Presse and a leading federalist spokesman in Quebec, while Joseph Facal is a former PQ cabinet member under Bernard Landry and Lucien Bouchard. Pratte gives us insight into how the group was formed, and how it reconciled the different concerns of its members.
