Personal details

Manon Massé is a Canadian politician in Quebec, who was elected to the National Assembly of Quebec in the 2014 election.[1] She represents the electoral district of Sainte-Marie–Saint-Jacques as a member of Québec solidaire, and is also the party's treasurer.[2]

Due to her narrow margin of victory over Quebec Liberal Party candidate Anna Klisko, a request for a judicial recount was filed by Klisko.[1] The request was rejected by the presiding judge on April 11, on the grounds that Klisko did not have sufficient evidence of any irregularities in the election process.[1]

Massé is a noted feminist, thinker, and social justice activist in and around Montreal.[3] Massé also participated in the attempted break-up of the Israeli blockade on board the Canadian vessel Tahrir.[4] She is an out lesbian.[5]

In 2006, Massé was the first ever candidate of the then newly formed Québec solidaire when she stood in an April 10, 2006, by-election in Sainte-Marie–Saint-Jacques, receiving 22% of the vote. She was also the party's candidate in the same district in the provincial elections of 2007, 2008 and 2012.
