CAQ wants to lower taxes

Stanstead Journal - - FROM PAGE ONE - Vic­to­ria Vanier

Fol­low­ing an ar­ti­cle that ap­peared in the Re­flet du lac, en­ti­tled “Or­ford peut se payer un can­di­dat de pres­tige”, Marc Alexandre Bour­get, the CAQ can­di­date in the Or­ford rid­ing, re­mains per­plexed to the po­si­tion of the PQ can­di­date who is ask­ing vot­ers to give the Parti Que­be­cois a four year man­date be­cause “the pri­or­ity of the CAQ, in his opin­ion, is still to gain power, not eco­nomic de­vel­op­ment.”

Mr. Bour­get wants vot­ers to re­call that the Parti Que­be­cois has di­vided the pop­u­la­tion with its Char­ter when they had the pos­si­bil­ity of get­ting it adopted be­fore the elec­tions. And to re­call that the PQ was not able to man­age the draft of the law on min­ing and that it was the Coali­tion who cleared the im­passe, that it was the PQ who pro­voked an in­crease in school taxes via budget cuts to the school boards, and the PQ who al­lowed an in­crease of 4.3% in elec­tric­ity rates, and that the PQ is in­ca­pable of promis­ing not to hold a ref­er­en­dum in a first man­date.

The Coali­tion Avenir Que­bec pro­poses a clear plan with the Pro­jet St-Lau­rent, a plan for the fu­ture with twenty in­no­va­tion zones, sources of cre­ation and wealth and qual­ity jobs. Each in­no­va­tion zone is a de­vel­op­ment en­gine for the re­gion that hosts them, Estrie be­ing one of those re­gions.
