Quebec's Maple Spring leader
Well known for his leadership role during the student mobilisations in early 2012, Léo Bureau-Blouin is now running for office for the PQ. His participation in the plenary on 'changing nations through citizens' will occur the day after polling day. He could therefore take the floor as the youngest ever member to be elected to Quebec's National Assembly.
The CIVICUS World Assembly is jointly organised with the Institut du Nouveau Monde (www.inm.qc.ca) and will be held from Wednesday 5 September to Friday 7 September, at Montreal's Palais des congrès: www.assembleecivicus.org.
