Contrary to the image conveyed on the elected members of Québec solidaire, Émilise Lessard-Therrien likes to hunt moose and advocates for the implementation of a bovine abattoir in the district of Rouyn-Noranda-Témiscamingue.

“I’m very nostalgic, I think I’m not born in the right time, the young woman says 27-year-old, who lives near Ville-Marie in Témiscamingue. 100 years ago, each village had its own dairy, its small beurrerie, the mill. We wasted a lot of local products. “

This is in particular to defend the concept of quebec, in the face of globalization, it has made the jump to politics.

On his first day in the national Assembly, Émilise Lessard-Therrien also took the floor in front of the grain Producers of Quebec to denounce the international competition and the phenomenon of land grabbing in which the farmers in quebec are facing.

Out of the orange line

For the first time in its existence, Québec solidaire, was elected, on the 1st of October last, members of parliament from outside of Montreal, which will inevitably stir the ideas within the training.

“It is clear that it will give place to other discussions, other ways of seeing things,” said Émilise Lessard-Therrien.

For example, she wishes that Quebec allows for the creation of a slaughterhouse for beef in Témiscamingue, an idea that we associate with difficulty, to Québec solidaire.

“The absence of a slaughterhouse is really a brake on the development of agricultural enterprises and agri-tourism in the region. You can’t eat this meat-locally “, argues the mp.

Bear and moose

In the same way, Émilise Lessard-Therrien likes to hunt the original and has already shot and killed a black bear. “We ate the meat and the fur is on my bed,” she says. But I say : it eats meat, it is necessary to assume. “

In the debate between vegetarians and locavores, Émilise Lessard-Therrien has chosen his camp.

“You don’t know in what environmental conditions the lawyers, grapes, raisins or coconut are grown, she notes. I like better to eat the meat of the corner, eating my chickens that have been bred in freedom. “

Mother of a little girl of 15 months, Émilise Lessard-Therrien admits to having a bit of trouble to leave her child behind when it comes time to take the plane to Quebec each week.

Sign that times have changed, it is dad who takes care of the little during the week, while mom sits on the Parliament.

Breastfeeding in the blue Room

Moreover, Émilise Lessard-Therrien did not rule out the idea of breastfeeding in the blue Room when she gives birth to a second child during his tenure.

It is said to be inspired by the member of parliament Christine Moore, that was to sit with her child in her arms to the House of commons, and to which she has asked for advice before making the plunge into politics.

“I think that it is necessary to show that such conciliation is possible,” she explains.

Great film buff, the member of solidarity can be recognized a little in the character of The Bolduc, who has been the subject of a film recently.

The famous singer has advanced the cause of feminist by its actions, in addition to being the voice of his fellow citizens, stresses Émilise Lessard-Therrien.

“She was very stuck on the reality of her fellow citizens, she said. It was a popular voice who stood above the masses. “
