Laurence Sicotte is a law student at the Université de Montréal. She is entering politics for the first time at the age of 20 to demand more respect for the environment, first nations and minorities.
At the local level, she supports a major expansion of transit services. She claims a free network, to encourage a real turn in society and create quality jobs related to the energy transition. Her goal is to put the riding of Acadia at the forefront of the green economy, while supporting a multicultural identity policy that favors living together.
According to Laurence, the Quebec government must take into account the science behind climate change and take practical actions, considering it across all government policies, instead of continuing to sacrifice this issue in the name of modest short term economic gains. She also believes that the government must take concrete actions to facilitate reconciliation with first nations in order to protect their rights, their territories and to repair the historical wrongs committed by our governments over the years.
Laurence is a sporty woman; she practices climbing, swimming, triathlon, biking and has a lifeguard training. Passionate about animals, she believes that Quebec can do better to respect all forms of life that occupy it. She is also Chair of the Environment Committee of the University of Montreal's Law Students' Association and is involved in volunteering during sports activities. She also participated in the United Nations simulation in the United Nations Environment Program Committee.
For Laurence, every vote tabled on behalf of the Quebec Green Party shows that our program resonates with the public, helps us to take a place in the public debate and contributes significantly to the development of the Green Party. For all these reasons, Laurence Sicotte would be honored to have your support in the 2018 provincial election.
