CBC Quebec’s senior political journalist Bernard St-Laurent brings his sharp insights and analysis to the web for the 2012 Quebec election.
For more than three decades, Bernard has covered every major political event in Quebec on the provincial and federal level.
Bernard has had his ear to the ground since the first election of the Parti Québécois, through two referendums, the emergence of the Bloc Québécois, the rise of the Liberal Party, the birth and death of the ADQ, the creation of the CAQ, and the NDP’s Orange Wave.
You can also hear Bernard weekdays on Radio Noon on CBC Radio One and in his popular weekly feature on Daybreak Montreal.
