description

A much-discussed bestseller in Quebec, The Trickster tells the inside story of political events in that province during the tumultuous two years that followed the defeat of Meech Lake.

As support for Quebec sovereignty reached record proportions, Premier Robert Bourassa had a clear opportunity to lead his province out of Confederation. For months he led Quebecers to believe that he was moving in this direction, while he privately assured prominent English Canadians that he was loyal to federalism.

Based on interviews with a wide range of political figures, strategists, pollsters and researchers, The Trickster is an umparalleled examination of a crucial period in Quebec's history.

Critique de chapters.indigo

A respected political journalist in Quebec, Jean-Francois Lisee unravels the inside story of political events that unfolded during the tumultuous two years following the defeat of the Meech Lake Accord. With support for Quebec sovereignty reaching a record high, Premier Robert Bourassa led Quebecers to believe he was working towards achieving the separatist objective. In the meantime he privately assured prominent English Canadians that he was loyal to federalism. The Trickster reveals Bourrassa's political tactics to play both sides of the coin and how he governed the province through this facade.

Critiques

"Lisée offers the reader more than his point of view on Bourassa's strategies and his government's positions during the Meech and Charlottetown negotiations: he also provokes reflections on the nature of nationalism. Students of nationalism will find this detailed account of Robert Bourassa'a involvement in the Meech lake negotiations an interesting case study of how sharply the commitment to national identity can fluctuate in response to political events. The Trickster will also bring them to reflect on what the elected politicians' responsibilities are when faced with a fluctuating nationalist commitment among the population."
