Information/Write-up

rare, privately pressed recording by Les Sinners. Remarkable artifact with interesting historical content. Side A contains the almost literal retranscription of the plea of Paul Rose, collected in prison by the drummer of the Sinners, Louis Parizeau. Paul Rose is the Quebec sovereigntist terrorist who was convicted of murder and kidnapping of Quebec cabinet minister Pierre Laporte in 1970. He was the leader of the Chenier cell of the Front de libération du Québec (FLQ), a group whose members were also responsible for a decade of bombings and armed robberies.

During the 1990s, he contributed to the monthly l'aut'journal. He was nominated the New Democratic Party of Quebec candidate in a 1992 provincial by-election. His nomination was controversial, and resulted in the federal New Democratic Party denouncing its former provincial wing (ties between the two parties had been severed in 1989) and seeking legal options in an attempt to force the provincial party to change its name.

In 1996, Rose was elected leader of the NDPQ which by this time was called the Parti de la démocratie socialiste. He led the party until 2002 when it joined the Union des forces progressistes. Rose currently works for the Confédération des syndicats nationaux labour union and remains a strong supporter of the Quebec sovereignty movement.
