CAQ wants to lower taxes
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.
