3 editions published in 2007 in French and English and held by 3 libraries worldwide
Roach and Starbuck, two hardcore punks from Montreal, try to form their own political party but run out of time due to Canada's electoral process. Instead, they decide to campaign for political office as independent candidates. As they hit the campaign trail in one of Canada's wealthiest communities, each wants to do it his own way. While Roach proposes to reform our rotting electoral system, Starbuck's punk rock performance art is designed to shock the electorate into waking the fuck up.

Anarchy or Federalism - what's the true path for a punk?
