FQM un­happy with Lib­er­als

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS - Vic­to­ria Vanier

FQM Pres­i­dent Richard Lehoux af­ter the meet­ing. Ac­cord­ing to the board mem­bers, it is the lo­cal and re­gional elected of­fi­cials who find the de­ci­sions of the gov­ern­ment odi­ous. We are ques­tioned by the peo­ple out of work, the en­trepreneurs who have lost their rep­re­sen­ta­tives, by the elec­tors. We see the CLD’s, the CRE’s and now some Fo­rums je­unesse close their doors, not know­ing what the next steps will be, what tools will be at the dis­posal of the lo­cal gov­ern­ments,” said Mr. Lehoux, who con­tin­ued: “Or­ga­ni­za­tions, such as the Fo­rums je­unesse, are at the base of the vi­tal­ity of our re­gions. We de­mand that the gov­ern­ment en­sures the con­ti­nu­ity of their mis­sions and the fi­nanc­ing of the Fo­rums.”

The FQM ad­min­is­tra­tors are also impatient over the ne­go­ti­a­tions for the new fis­cal agree­ment and hope that it will be re­solved be­fore the sum­mer.
