Quebec Solidaire gives solid OK to merge with Option nationale

Members with Quebec Solidaire have voted in favour of merging with Option nationale.

80 per cent of delegates at Québec solidaire’s convention in Longueuil approved the merger today.

Solidaire co-spokesperson Manon Massé calls it a great day, adding "it’s an important step in the sovereignty movement in Quebec.” 

Option nationale members still have to endorse the merger.
