By Patrice Dutil

a skilled and vibrant guy of motion, the journalist and flesh presser Godfroy Langlois (1866-1928) used to be on the centre of violent storms of controversy in belle époque Quebec. Vilified via the monks, officially condemned two times through the Archbishops of Montreal and run out of the Liberal celebration newspaper which he created and edited for 5 years, Langlois was once detailed for his unorthodox politics. He argued for a brand new type of liberalism--a Liberal progressivism--a "radical centre" ideology encouraged via the politics of the French 3rd Republic that used to be ferociously serious of Quebec society and government.
Though continuously supported by way of many associates, and elected by way of the folks 3 times to the Quebec legislature, Langlois's rules and profession were forgotten. during this booklet, Patrice Dutil brings again to existence the coterie of freemasons, free-thinkers, self-taught rebels and Liberal sympathizers that formed electoral coalitions, fastened courses in favour of academic reform, got rid of a best from workplace, fought corruption and duplicity and compelled Montreal into new administrative preparations. Liberal progressivism--a special strand of political considering in Quebec that stretches from the rougisme of the 19th century to the quiet revolution of the Nineteen Sixties, is explored and outlined because it takes motion on the municipal, provincial and federal levels.

"Patrice Dutil's seminal paintings is destined to refresh our knowing of Canadian and Quebec turn-of- the-century politics and of the decisive impression that Montreal municipal politics had at the governments in Ottawa and Quebec City... this can be a tale instructed with no complacency or self-satisfaction, freed from intellectualist jargon, a heady story acknowledged at complete throttle in an easy and transparent way." From the preface by way of Gérard Pelletier
