Who should I vote for in Jean-Talon?

Jean-Talon riding

1) Introduction

In order to help myself and help visitors of my web site vote more intelligently, and also to decide to which candidate I will donate time and money, I send this letter and post the answers I get before every provincial election in Quebec.

In theory, I should be able to contact the candidates based on the official list provided by the Directeur général des élections du Québec. Unfortunately, as of 2015-May-21, only Google helped me.

2) Open letter to all candidates for the Quebec provincial by-election of June 8, 2015, in the Jean-Talon riding

Quebec City, Thursday May 21st 2015.

Good day!

Should I vote for you?

To decide that intelligently, I need to examine all candidates, to see which one is the best (or least bad!) for the Common Good. The most efficient way of doing this is by attending a thorough and constructive political debate where all candidates are invited (not just the media darlings).

Do you know if such a debate is planned? If so, when and where? (And if such a debate has occured already, where is the full video recording so I can watch it?)

If no such debate is being planned, I'm sure I could rent a parish hall and the appropriate audio-visual equipment. My neighbor is in charge of rental contracts for the Saint-Thomas-d'Aquin parish hall, located centrally in Jean-Talon, close to Laval University, and I work as a conference interpreter, so I know many audio-visual technicians in Quebec City. Also, I've been a candidate for the past thre Canadian federal elections, so I know how hard it is to get voters to climb out of "the sofa of their political apathy", and to get them to do a few hours of democratic exercise on the "mental treadmill" of a good political debate!

In conclusion, my questions are:

1) Do you know if an "Official Jean-Talon All-Candidate Debate" is being planned, and if so, when and where?

2) If no such debate is being planned, would you come to the one I would organize?

3) Candidates and answers

Since this list takes time and money to maintain, and since I'm not paid, I don't translate it into English, sorry. But you should be able to figure out what their answers mean if you can read a few words of French: Candidats et réponses.
