New group fights cynicism in Quebec

A new initiative to inspire public debate in Quebec was launched last night in Montreal. Sortie 13 brings together 13 Gen X and Y leaders, each of whom specializes in a different societal issue, ranging from transportation to entrepreneurship to immigration. Equiterre's Steven Guilbeault is the group's resident environmentalist.

According to an article in Le Devoir, the idea is to "counter the inertia and cynicism in Quebec," by finding concrete solutions to contemporary problems. The group will encourage discussion on its website and Facebook page, in the hopes of influencing the next election campaign.
