Liberal family: The past catches up with Philippe Couillard

 

 27 April 2017

Since the beginning of the week, it has been the Chinese water torture for Quebecers, who are learning more and more about the good old liberal system of influence, deplored the CAQ leader, François Legault.

In a week span, they learned that:

  • The exmajor party fundraiser ,Marc Bibeau, and the former premier Jean Charest are under investigation by the UPAC
  • The actual premier ’s chief of staff was defending Marc Bibeau’ s economic interests
  • A liberal MNA, still in office, is apparently under investigation for having favored a real estate developer close to the mafia, according to Yves Francoeur of the SPVM police union
  • For François Legault, all these stories have the disastrous consequence of weakening the confidence of Quebecers. Member for Montarville, Nathalie Roy demanded that a parliamentary committee will be put in place to hear Yves Francoeur.

Overbilling at Hydro-Quebec: liberals refuse to apologize to Quebecers

 

 7 April 2017

Questioned by the Coalition Avenir Quebec, Energy Minister Pierre Arcand refused to apologize to Quebecers for the $1.4B overcharge they have been victim of since 2008, through their electrical bills.

Yet, the Couillard government was well aware of this disguised tax, since they themselves put an end to the reimbursement mechanism introduced by the Régie de l’énergie, in order to use this jackpot for a return to a balanced budget.

Remember that on Wednesday, not only the Minister acknowledged the existence of this overcharge; he also closed the door to an eventual reimbursement to Quebec’s families. The CAQ member for Saint-Hyacinthe, Chantal Soucy, denounced this arrogant attitude and this selfish act by the liberal government.

 29 January 2017

The shootings that took place this Sunday evening at the Islamic Cultural Center of Quebec, urged the head of the CAQ, François Legault to make the following statement:

“Tonight, the city of Quebec was struck deeply in the heart. The news reported and the events unfolding before us are horrendous.

One or many shooters attacked a mosque of Sainte-Foy. Many people lost their lives and many others were seriously injured. On behalf of my political formation, I wish to offer my deepest condolences to the victims of this brutal attack.

One thing is certain: this is a barbaric and coward attack committed against innocent people. We are all supportive of the Muslim community of Quebec who is currently going through really tough times.

More than ever, we should all unite to fight against hatred, intolerance and racism. No matter what form terrorism takes, we should fight it with all the strength needed.“

CAQ wants Quebec to remain within Canada and to make concrete gains for all Quebecers

 

 18 November 2016

 

It is fair to say that Coalition Avenir Quebec’s convention – that took place this weekend at Drummondville – was a great success. More than 500 supporters of CAQ were reunited to discuss the major orientations of the party.

On this topic, this convention was an historic moment for the CAQ because the party’s members voted largely in favor of an Article 1 by which one the party will work to ensure concrete gains for Quebec and work for the prosperity of Quebec while staying within Canada.

During his closing speech at the convention, the CAQ’s leader François Legault delivered a part of his speech in English and addressed a message of hope to English speakers living in Quebec: “If you wish Quebec to flourish within Canada; If you have enough of being stuck with the Liberal Party which is worn out; If you are tired of being taken for granted; You now have another option. Join us”.

François Legault also made a big announcement during this convention. A new electricity project in the style of James Bay will be submitted to Quebecers in 2017: “Since its beginning, CAQ offers its economic development vision for the enrichment of all Quebecers. Thus, I will present soon a game’s plan that will allow Hydro-Quebec to export more electricity. We must think bigger. As a Prime Minister, I will dedicate myself to the task of building partnerships with Ontario, Newfoundland, New-Brunswick and with the Native nations. My goal will be to increase very considerably electricity exports to Ontario, New-England and New-York. Everybody will benefit from this. A CAQ’s government will then launch a great project that is going to create a thousand of high paying jobs. I am talking about launching a 21st century James Bay”
