In view of the next elections scheduled for the fall, the Parti Québécois (PQ), the Liberal Party of Quebec (PLQ), and Québec solidaire (QS) sharpened their weapons during the report of the parliamentary session held on Friday.
Paul St-Pierre Plamondon of the PQ opened the ball by accusing the Coalition avenir Québec (CAQ) of lacking honesty and transparency regarding its position on the future of Quebec. “On the one hand, there is resignation and, on the other hand, there are those who are proud, there are those who display their convictions and who are eager to talk about them,” he said. supported.
Paul St-Pierre Plamondon also deplored the lack of long-term vision and the “day-to-day governance by polls” of the CAQ government.
The PQ leader has shown confidence, despite recent polls that place his team in a difficult position. “I think that we are in a position to surprise and that nothing is decided,” he assured.
For her part, during this review of the parliamentary session, the leader of the PLQ , Dominique Anglade, drew up a bitter assessment on the last day of the current legislature. “On October 3, Quebecers will have a choice between a party of arrogance, division, and a party that wants to bring all Quebecers together,” she said.
Instead of dealing with the many crises facing Quebec, particularly with regard to labor shortages, climate change and inflation, the CAQ “systematically” denies these issues, he said. she lamented. The chief says she has put on the table several proposals to counter these problems, including an allowance for seniors and the elimination of the QST.
The last few months have been eventful for the PLQ, with the departure of several deputies. Despite everything, Dominique Anglade said she was convinced of winning the next elections and set herself the objective of winning at least 63 seats.
On the side of QS, the co-spokespersons Gabriel Nadeau- Dubois and Manon Massé presented their party once again as the real opposition to François Legault during the results of the parliamentary session.
“If you were still wondering what is the point of having 10 deputies from Quebec solidaire, well, if there were no Québec solidaire in the National Assembly, we would never have talked about the housing crisis,” launched Ms. Massé, recalling that the CAQ denied everything recently the existence of a crisis.
Mr. Nadeau-Dubois, who would be the prime minister in the event of a solidarity government, said he was convinced that QS would progress in the deputation.
“We will present the best team that Québec solidaire has ever presented,” he said.
As is customary, Prime Minister François Legault will be the last to present his assessment of the parliamentary session. He must go in front of the journalists around 12:30 p.m.
