Before completing my article on Refus global (1948), a document that indicted the institutions of old Quebec, the Church in particular, I am sending you the news. Refus global (1948) was written during a period in Quebec’s history when the province was often referred to as the “priest-ridden” province.
My students read that document because I considered it a statement that ushered in Quebec’s Révolution tranquille. It is now viewed as such in an official manner.
But first, allow me to send some News.
