What do the candidates plan for Montreal?
François Cardinal has now interviewed the three main candidates for Quel Avenir about their intentions concerning Montreal.
Jean Charest says the Plan Nord will be good for Montreal. (Is there anything it can’t do?)
Pauline Marois promises to name a minister specifically for Montreal so watch out, Mayor Tremblay.
François Legault, as already noted in this blog, wants Montreal to work harder for Quebec.
There are more details, of course, and it’s worth reading all three pieces to get a sense of how the candidates feel about the city.
Jean-François Dumas from Influence Communications, who closely watches media mentions, says Montreal has received much less attention than Quebec City during this campaign. Dumas notes in a very short item:
- Gérald Tremblay invite les partis à présenter ce qu’ils prévoient pour Montréal.
- Régis Labeaume dépose sa liste de demandes pour Québec.
