MONTREAL - On August 14, 2006, Mr. Andre Boisclair was elected to Quebec's National Assembly from the riding of Pointe-aux-Trembles. Boisclair's new election was uncontested by the other major parties in Quebec provincial politics. As leader of the racist and separatist Parti Quebecois, Boisclair now stands a chance of becoming Premier of Quebec should his party win the next provincial elections, expected in 2007. The National Assembly resumes sitting at Quebec City on October 17, 2006, with the Parti Québécois holding 46 seats to the Liberal government's 73 seats.

In addition to being a cocaine user and showing open support for terrorist groups, Boisclair has been a Siloist sympathiser since 1989, when he received Siloist propaganda tracts at his Montreal home. During Boisclair's campaign for the leadership of the Parti Québécois in 2005, he caused a stir by revealing that he had been a cocaine user even while a cabinet minister in the government of Lucien Bouchard. Consistent with a long history of anti-Jewish sentiment in the former French colony of Quebec, Boisclair marched at the head of anti-Israeli demonstrations where the flag of terrorist groups were prominently brandished alongside the banners of local separatist organizations. In addition to the ubiquitous blue-and-white of Quebec's provincial flag, such rallies are invariably accompanied by the over-displayed and misunderstood flag of the Quebec Patriots, that of the MNLQ / FLQ ( homegrown terrorist groups), and the black flag of anarchism.

In 1988-89, Boisclair lived on de Normanville Street, in Montreal's Gouin riding, for which he became Member of the National Assembly, later the same year, in September 1989. At the time, the Humanists were registered as a political party in Quebec under the name “Humanist Party”. Boisclair received a propaganda tract for the “Futur Vert”, a front group for the Humanists who distributed leaflets to homes in the area. Failing to recognize the tract as cult propaganda, the naive Boisclair contacted the Siloists at the phone number printed on the tract. On the telephone, Boisclair identified himself as a member of the Parti Québécois and said he thought the project was worthwhile and something Boisclair would like to know more about.

At Boisclair’s invitation, a representative of the Movement went to meet and talk with Boisclair at his home. After the meeting, Boisclair was positive about the Humanist Party and offered to represent its project to his own party. At Boisclair’s request, he was put in contact with the leadership and administration of the Party: Colette Renaud, Marie-Claire Desroches, Ann Farrell, all francophone and left-leaning separatist sympathisers, contrary to the Siloist doctrine. The Humanist Party dissolved in August 1989 and Boisclair was elected to the National Assembly in September 1989. The Humanist Movement has persisted in Quebec until the present.

I was intrigued about the timing of Boisclair’s first electoral victory, since it came only one month after the dissolution of the Humanist Party, a notoriously weak party that had no chance of winning an election. Representing the Parti Québécois, could Boisclair have brokered a deal with the Humanist Movement to dissolve the Humanist Party and have its political interests represented in caucus by Boisclair? The advantage for the Parti Québécois would have been one fewer leftist party to split the vote; the advantage for the Humanist Movement would have been a voice within the most popular leftist party in Quebec and the appearance of legitimacy.

Many years later, with the Parti Québécois returned to power, I noticed Boisclair’s ministerial publicity appearing in a publication of the Humanist Movement. On several occasions, Boisclair had placed his business card or other advertising in the pages of "Visions-Voisins", a publication of the Humanist Movement cult. With Boisclair's support, "Visions-Voisins" became the darling of many prominent separatists such as Gerald Godin, Francoise David, Robert Perreault, and Lucien Bouchard himself who disgraced its pages with interviews or publicity paid for by the government. In addition to the questionable use of public funds, I feel Boisclair’s sympathy with and links to a known cult places his judgement in greater doubt than it already was.

God forbid this cocaine-snorting, terrorist-loving, cult sympathiser Andre Boisclair should ever become Premier of Quebec!
