Political Panel with Rhéal Séguin and Gilbert Lavoie

Rhéal Séguin looks back

RhealSeguin.jpg A feature conversation with our longtime political contributor Rhéal Séguin. He retired last week, as the National Assembly rose for this spring session. We invited him by to look back at some of the political figures and the events he'll remember from his 26 years as the Globe's one-man Quebec City bureau. Listen here.

Wrapping up the Political Panel

The National Assembly's not even in session, and already there's much afoot. Here to make sense of it all are the two gentlemen whose sole purpose is to enlighten: Gilbert Lavoie, political columnist for Le Soleil newspaper and Rhéal Seguin is Quebec City bureau chief for the Globe and Mail.

Political Panel's take on the leader's debate

Last night, Radio-Canada televised the only debate of the campaign that involved the leaders of the Liberal Party, the Parti Québécois, the Coalition Avenir Québec and Québec Solidaire. To give us their take on how the debate went, we've invited out political panel - and campaign watchers - to share their thoughts. Rhéal Séguin is the Globe and Mail's Bureau Chief in Quebec City and is currently on the Liberal campaign bus. Gilbert Lavoie is political columnist for Le Soleil newspaper here in Quebec City.
