Big jump in Quebec Solidaire membership requests since Gabreil Nadeau-Dubois` candidacy announcement

Good news for Quebec Solidaire.

The provincial opposition party received a thousand new membership requests in the 24 hours after Gabriel Nadeau-Dubois announced he wants to run for the party.

Nadeau-Dubois wants to run in Gouin, the riding that until recently was represented by party co-founder and female spokesperon Francoise David.

Nadeau-Dubois was a familiar face during 2012 so-called Maple Spring protests against planned tuition hikes by the then Charest government.

He was a student spokesperson.

Quebec Solidaire will chose its candidate in the Gouin riding on March 26th.
