For many young people in their late teens, politics is a rather abstract concept. For many of them, this year’s provincial election might be the first time they are eligible to cast a vote. But for a 19-year-old from Bristol who is seeking the Parti Québécois (PQ) seat in the riding of Chapleau, politics is a passion.
Blake Ippersiel was born in Rouyn-Noranda but was raised in Quyon and Bristol and attended L’école secondaire Sieur de Coulonge.
Currently studying cinema at CEGEP in Gatineau, the teen plans to attend university to study political science or history in the future. He previously worked on campaigns in the Pontiac with both the Bloc Québécois and the PQ in the 2011 and 2014 elections.
