One of the most famous faces of 2012’s student strikes is making a political comeback.
Gabriel Nadeau-Dubois recently spent two months travelling the province with fellow left-wing activists on a fact-finding mission to discover what Quebecers care about politically. Nadeau-Dubois and his colleagues met with groups of 10 Quebecers at a time in 174 kitchens around the province to discuss Quebec’s future.
The 26-year-old said he was driven by a collective mood of disillusionment with sovereignty among Quebecers, as well as exhaustion with the Liberals
Nadeau-Dubois first rose to prominence as one of the leaders of the Printemps Erable and in 2015 raised $400,000 in a week to challenge the East Energy Pipeline project.
