Six dozen English- and French-speaking young Quebecers from across the province participated in the first of three annual Young Quebecers Leading the Way forums at the historic Morrin Centre in Quebec City on March 7-8. Participants aged 15 to 25 from the Eastern Townships, the Gaspésie, the Outaouais, Rouyn-Noranda, the Greater Montreal area and the provincial capital region drafted a declaration on Canada’s past as viewed by its future.
