Rene Levesque

As a premier of Quebec, Rene Levesque was a honest man, who broadcasted clear and spoke “from the heart”. As many other extraordinary Canadians, I did not know who Rene Levesque was; I actually have never heard of him before. However, after listening and learning about him by this seminar, I found out that he was a very historically significant person in terms of Quebec and Canada. Some of his legacies include encouraging the self confidence in Quebec, Bill 101, tried showing Quebecers that they could succeed in Quebec, help equality of minority groups. He also have helped the French no longer feel like they were a minority, no longer overpowered by English, and finally equal. I believe he is significant because he was the voice for the minority, helped them establish their confidence, and finally made them feel equal.
