|Member of the National Assembly of Quebec for Sainte-Marie–Saint-Jacques|
April 7, 2014
|Preceded by||Daniel Breton|
May 22, 1963 |
|Political party||Québec solidaire|
Manon Massé is a Canadian politician in Quebec, who was elected to the National Assembly of Quebec in the 2014 election. She represents the electoral district of Sainte-Marie–Saint-Jacques as a member of Québec solidaire, and is also the party's treasurer.
Due to her narrow margin of victory over Quebec Liberal Party candidate Anna Klisko, a request for a judicial recount was filed by Klisko. 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.
Massé is a noted feminist and social justice activist in and around Montreal. Massé also participated in the attempted break-up of the Israeli and Egyptian blockade of the Gaza Strip on board the Canadian vessel Tahrir. She is an out lesbian and grows a mustache, a fact often mentioned during and after the 2012 election but with moral support from her Party.
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.
