By-election: the CAQ bets on a tax cut
The Premier of Quebec, François Legault
The Coalition avenir du Québec (CAQ) will bet on an upcoming tax cut during the by-election in Saint-Henri–Sainte-Anne.
The team of volunteers of the CAQ candidate, Victor Pelletier, was already at work Monday evening during the traditional installation of election signs and we can indeed see the portrait of the Premier, François Legault, accompanied by the slogan which undoubtedly gives a taste of the next provincial budget.
“It's a real poster of the election partial in Saint-Henri–Sainte-Anne?”, reacted Parti Québécois MP Pascal Bérubé on Twitter. And, sarcastically, he writes that “it's easier when the candidate knows the date of the election before everyone else and he is already paid by an MP”.

The Parti Québécois will announce its candidate for the by-election on Thursday. The candidates for the Quebec Liberal Party and Quebec solidaire have already been announced. They are respectively Christopher Baenninger and Guillaume Cliche-Rivard.
Remember that the citizens of the riding of Saint-Henri–Sainte-Anne will be called to the polls on March 13. This election aims to fill the seat left vacant by the departure of the former Liberal leader, Dominique Anglade, a few weeks after a historic defeat of the PLQ.
