Union National ( Quebec )- Jessica

A Quebec Union ( Union natinale )- Jessica

This Union nationale was founded during the Great Depression, in the year 1935 and finally became a political party  from the years 1936 to 1970. This Union was under the leadership of Premier Maurice Duplessis from the years 1944 to 1960 and from 1966 to 1970 which helped power in Quebec.

Premier Maurice Duplessis also involved his several and most progressive legislators. It was very popular in the rural areas. The “effects” this organization has on the economy in Quebec in general is giving the Catholic clergy government money in order of providing themselves with public education, health care and other important and services.

  1. This is very interesting, and I suggest leaving it here but changing the title. This is not a “union” in the sense we were talking about, meaning a labour union (or syndicate in French). Maybe I wasn’t clear on it. This was a political party, as you said. I can’t remember why it was called Union Nationale off the top of my head. You might want to research that. But it definitely wasn’t a union in the sense that we use the phrase “a union” in English. (in fact, it was a party that was often against labour unions!)
