Economist and Editor of the Financial Post (appointed in June, 1991), the former American, Diane Francis, reveals the involvement of Jacques Parizeau with the supposed “anti-communist” Solidarity movement in Poland.

American Joel M. Skousen, a self-styled Sino-Soviet analyst who accepts the warnings of Soviet defector Anatoliy Golitsyn, remarked on 14 October 2011 in “Russia’s Hidden Rulers” that

“Several of the so-called anti-Soviet leaders at the time in Poland (Lech Waleza), in Czechoslovakia (Vaclav Havel) were later found to be secretly allied with the soviet secret organs playing both sides.”

In other words, Walesa was one of the Iron Curtain leaders who agreed to go along with the simulated collapse of communism. As Parizeau ultimately led the veiled Communist Parti Québécois (March 18, 1988 – January 27, 1996), perhaps he was giving Walesa tips from the phony “Canadian Unity” movement, which is nothing but a front to advance North American Communism.

The following few paragraphs from Diane Francis offer additional points of interest in Parizeau’s profile.

In the French edition of her book Maîtres chanteurs chez nous  (Our Master Blackmailers — referring to the supposed Quebec “separatists”) (French adaptation by Hélène Thibault), Francis says (English further below):

À l’automne 1986, j’ai entrepris une tournée pour promouvoir mon livre, Controlling Interest. Avant de me rendre à Montréal, j’ai fait savoir à Jacques Parizeau que je voulais lui en offrir un exemplaire dédicacé, en remerciement de sa collaboration. Il m’invita à dîner au chic hôtel Ritz-Carlton, pour célébrer mon succès. Ce fut un dîner des plus agréables, qui dura des heures. Je fus reçue au caviar et champagne.

Je revois l’homme : séduisant, bon vivant, un conteur hors pair. Il me parle de ses études et de ses activités politiques en Europe Centrale, en dehors de ses heures de classe. Il était marié à l’époque à la regrettée Alicja Poznanska, intellectuelle et écrivain d’origine polonaise. Pendant des années, il conseilla secrètement Leich Walesa et son mouvement Solidarité. Il me dit que Walesa et d’autres Polonais ont souvent fréquenté sa résidence de Montréal. On parlait de révolution autour d’un bon repas.

Aider les Polonais à affronter les Russes et le communisme était méritoire, certes; mais Parizeau y a trouvé du même coup l’occasion d’affûter ses talents de révolutionnaire astucieux, patient et audacieux. Et c’est le Canada qui est pour lui un adversaire, exactement comme l’a été la Russie pour les Polonais qu’il conseille.

Parizeau me parle aussi de sa famille. Son père fut un courtier d’assurances très prospère à Montréal. Jacques et son frère Robert ont fréquenté les meilleures écoles privées. Jacques poursuit des études supérieures, alors que Robert prend en main l’entreprise familiale, pour devenir de fait l’un des courtiers d’assurance commerciale les plus prospères du pays, avec un accès particulier à la Lloyds de Londres.

« Nous avions toujours de très intéressantes discussions de famille. Je suis séparatiste et ils ne le sont pas, les pauvres ! Mais mon père a établi une règle stricte : pas de politique à table. »

Parizeau est un séparatiste peu commun. Il a grandi dans une famille riche, avec toutes les chances de réussite de son côté. D’aucuns ont même spéculé qu’après avoir passé des années à conseiller le Parti libéral du Québec, il est devenu séparatiste parce que les libéraux d’Ottawa ne l’avaient pas nommé gouverneur de la Banque du Canada.

Il me fournit toutefois une explication différente pendant le dîner. Fraîchement diplômé de l’université de Montréal, il était allé passer quelques années en Angleterre et en France. Il poursuivit ses études de troisième cycle à l’Institut d’Études politiques de Paris, et à l’École supérieure des sciences économiques et commerciales. Puis, de retour au pays, il décida de visiter le Canada. En 1967, c’est un jeune homme fier qui prend le train pour les provinces de l’Ouest, son doctorat en poche et des connaissances plein la tête.

My Translation:

In the Autumn of 1986, I toured to promote my book, Controlling Interest. Before coming to Montreal, I informed Jacques Parizeau that I would like to offer him a signed copy in thanks for his collaboration. He invited me to supper at the chic Ritz-Carlton Hotel, to celebrate my success. This was one of the most pleasant suppers, which lasted for hours. I was received with caviar and champagne.

I saw the man again: seductive, convivial, an outstanding storyteller. He spoke to me about his studies and his political activities in Central Europe outside of his class schedule. He was married at that time to the regretted Alicja Poznanska*, a Polish author and intellectual. For years, he secretly advised Leich Walesa and his Solidarity movement. He told me that Walesa and other Poles had often visited his residence in Montreal. We spoke of revolution over a good meal.

Helping the Poles to stand up to the Russians and to Communism** was meritorious, of course; but Parizeau at the same time found an opportunity to sharpen his own talents as a cunning, patient and bold revolutionary. And for him, it is Canada which is the adversary, exactly as Russia had been for the Poles whom he advised.

Parizeau also talked about his family. His father was a very prosperous insurance broker in Montreal. Jacques and his brother Robert attended the best private schools. Jacques pursued his higher studies, while Robert took the family business in hand, to thus become one of the most prosperous insurance brokers in the country, with special access to Lloyds of London.

“We always had very interesting family discussions. I was a separatist and they were not, the poor things! But my father had established a strict rule: no politics at the table.”

Parizeau is an uncommon separatist. He grew up in a wealthy family***, with every chance of success on his side. No one even guessed that after spending years advising the Quebec Liberal Party, he had become a separatist because the Ottawa Liberals did not appoint him Governor of the Bank of Canada.

However, he gave me a different explanation over dinner. Having just graduated from the Université de Montréal, he went to spend a few years in England and in France. He pursued his advanced studies at the Institut d’Études politiques de Paris, and at the École supérieure des sciences économiques et commerciales. Then, back in Canada, he decided to travel across Canada. In 1967, a proud young man with his PhD in his pocket, and his head full of knowledge, boarded a train for the Western provinces.

* Alicja (“Alice”) Poznanska wrote for the pro-Soviet review, Cité Libre, founded by Communist Gérard Pelletier and Pilgrim of Moscow Pierre Elliott Trudeau, who surely just coincidentally happened to hire two future leaders of the Communist FLQ terrorists: Charles Gagnon and Pierre Vallières. One of Poznanska’s articles, written in French, recommends that the Quebec government institute a general program of forced home inspections for all households into which a child is born, to ensure that the parents are raising their child properly! Alice Poznanska-Parizeau (1930-1990) was a criminologist with the Department of Criminology at the French University of Montreal. She published “L’armée et la crise d’octobre” (1980) [Translation: The Army and the October Crisis].

** Note: “stand up to Communism”? I don’t think so. Parizeau led the veiled Communist Parti Québécois, stuffed with radical Communists from the Rassemblement pour l’indépendance du Quebec (RIN), and with its 1972 Communist manifesto (see my exclusive English segments in the sidebar), and its 1982 attempt to join the Socialist International (SI) seeking a socialist world government. Therefore, like Communist Lévesque before him, Parizeau was not a Quebec “nationalist”; like Lévesque, this graduate of the Fabian Socialist London School of Economics founded by the pro-Soviet Sydney and Beatrice Webb, was helping to generate and to use French-Canadian nationalist sentiment to exploit French-Canadians to restructure Canada on the regional European model, the basis of socialist world federalism.

*** “an uncommon separatist”. Correction, Parizeau grew up in a very wealthy family — just as Pierre Elliott Trudeau had done — and led a veiled Communist party, the very one millionaire Trudeau and the “secret committee” of Communist-stuffed “Liberals” on the premises of Power Corporation, ordained should be set up and led by Trudeau’s good friend, Communist René Lévesque (1967).
