The Quebec Solidaire (QS) party is focusing on youth in Orford ahead of the October provincial election and has chosen 25-year-old social worker Annabelle Lalumière-Ting to carry its banner in the upcoming provincial election. Lalumière-Ting will succeed Patricia Tremblay, who has been the party’s candidate in the riding for the last four elections. Lalumière-Ting is making the leap into active politics without any real experience, but with the desire to change the world, while advocating environmental values and social justice. "Politics has always interested me. I know it may be utopian to think I can change the world, but I also know that you can try your luck in politics by changing structures and frameworks," she said, in a recent press release. The young Sherbrooke native said her choice of political party was easy. "I share the ideals of Québec Solidaire on the left, like living in a better, more just society that favors the fair distribution of wealth."
