Vilified through the clergymen, officially condemned two times via the Archbishops of Montreal and run out of the Liberal get together newspaper which he created and edited for 5 years, Langlois used to be distinct for his unorthodox politics. He argued for a brand new kind of liberalism--a Liberal progressivism--a "radical centre" ideology encouraged through the politics of the French 3rd Republic that was once ferociously serious of Quebec society and government.
