Interview with Denis Lagacé

Why did you choose to be a member of the Citizen round table?

“I didn’t choose, they chose me! But I was very happy to be chosen. Why did I apply? Because I was very interested in our democratic system and I consider it important. I also wanted to contribute to an initiative constituting another stepping stone in the great adventure that is Québec’s democracy.”

Did your perception of certain issues evolve throughout the meetings of the Citizen round table? And if so, in what way?

“Yes, my perception changed. We have our way of seeing things, each of us arrives with our own baggage and we are given a lot of documents to support our discussions. One of the selection criteria was to be open-minded: and the group was, very much so. We evolve, we learn, we understand things and it makes it even more interesting to be part of the Citizen round table.”
