Town­ship­pers’ As­so­ci­a­tion State­ment on Quebec’s Elec­tion Re­sults

Stanstead Journal - - FROM PAGE 1 -

Town­ship­pers’ As­so­ci­a­tion Pres­i­dent Ger­ald R. Cut­ting re­leased the fol­low­ing state­ment on the re­sults of Tues­day’s pro­vin­cial elec­tion in Quebec. “On be­half of the Town­ship­pers’ As­so­ci­a­tion I would like to con­grat­u­late Mme. Pauline Marois as she be­comes Quebec’s first fe­male Premier, mak­ing Quebec the fourth Cana­dian prov­ince to elect a woman to the pre­mier­ship. A proud mo­ment in his­tory for all Que­be­cers.”

“How­ever with only 32% of the pop­u­lar vote to her credit, it does present a unique op­por­tu­nity for her to lead by fo­cus­ing her poli­cies on the real pre­oc­cu­pa­tions of the ma­jor­ity , which are, eco­nomic de­vel­op­ment, job cre­ation, health care and debt re­duc­tion. “

“The time for the pol­i­tics of division and con­fronta­tion will not lead us into greater pros­per­ity but, by work­ing to­gether, we will al­ways ac­com­plish more then by work­ing against each other.”
