Québec solidaire (QS) continues to spend thousands of dollars on advertising on Meta platforms, in the midst of a media crisis.

“Of course we have no choice, Facebook is central,” explained the party’s parliamentary leader, Alexandre Leduc, in a press scrum at the National Assembly on Tuesday.

“It’s a tool that is essential, unfortunately, for our political work,” he resigned.

QS, who has always spoken out against the giants of the web, put an end to the boycott of Facebook started by the parties in Quebec during the by-election in the riding of Jean-Talon.

In September, Émilise Lessard-Therrien, who was just elected co-spokesperson for QS last weekend, asked the party to stop buying ads on Facebook. Could his election change the party's position?
