NOMINATING-OFFICER: PAO Alyson Grunder
START MEMO NOMINATING-JUSTIFICATION:
Since the Bloc Quebecois' strong showing in the 2004 federal
election, we have been on the lookout for a BQ
representative to nominate for the IV program. We believe
Marie-France Charbonneau, Bloc political advisor, would make
an excellent candidate for a program devoted to current
issues in U.S.-Canada relations, federalism and
decentralization in the U.S. political system, and U.S.
.S.
perspectives on globalization, including its impact on
international security.
Charbonneau proved her loyalty to the Quebec separatist
movement when early in her career she ran for the provincial
legislature as a sacrificial Parti Quebecois lamb, in a
strong Liberal (federalist) riding. Since that 1989 race,
she has worked continuously as a political advisor to senior
PQ and Bloc politicians, including former Quebec Premier
Bernard Landry, and currently, BQ leader Gilles Duceppe.
Charbonneau is bright, trusted and supported by the inner
circle of senior elected officials in the Bloc. She was
tasked with planning and organizing Duceppe's public events
during the 2004 election campaign, and his recent speaking
tours outside of Quebec. Charbonneau well understands that
the U.S. strongly favors a united Canada, but she makes the
case that Americans need to understand that the sovereignist
cause has many supporters in Quebec, including among young
voters. She, and her separatist colleagues, would also
benefit from hearing the American arguments for federalism,
within a decentralized political system.
