Pierre Marois


"It is important to play an honest game and speak the truth the way we do. That is, for that matter, what set René Lévesque apart at the time, and that is exactly what made him successful."

A graduate of Collège Sainte-Marie, holding a law degree and having completed doctoral studies in Economics and Social Science at the University of Paris, Mr Marois was an active member of student movements in Quebec. He made his entrance in politics as a Cabinet Member of Paul Gérin-Lajoie, then Minister of Education. First candidate of the Parti Québécois chosen in 1969, Mr Marois was then elected to the National Assembly for Laporte in 1976 and for Marie-Victorin in 1980, and acted as Minister of the Crown for Social Development as well as Minister of Labour, Manpower and Income Security. At the time, he was among those who spearheaded the Occupational Health and Safety Act. Later in his career, he presided over the Commission des droits de la personne et des droits de la jeunesse (CDPDJ). Describing himself as a "wise elder", Mr Marois would now like to accompany young people in the process towards the independence of Quebec.
