PRESS RELEASE | “Listening to Quebecers,” the province-wide tour that stopped in our region, wrapped up on Monday, January 21. The Leader of the Conservative Party of Canada, the Honourable Andrew Scheer, spoke about some of the ideas that were raised during consultations across the province.
“Our leader and the members of the Québec caucus have travelled across the province meeting Quebecers,” said Bernard Généreux, MP for Montmagny–L’Islet–Kamouraska–Rivière-du-Loup. “The purpose of these consultations was to see how the next Conservative government can ensure that more Quebecers see themselves in the policies developed by the federal government.”
The Conservative Leader, the Québec Lieutenant Alain Rayes, the caucus team and Québec Conservative candidates held a series of positive, engaging meetings with residents and stakeholders from all sectors and backgrounds.
The results shared on Monday can be summarized in five points:
- Improving the lives of Quebecers by instating a single income tax return;
- Offering incentives to retirees who want to go back to work;
- Respecting Québec by giving the province more say in immigration matters;
- Putting an end to wastewater overflows;
- Appointing a Québec minister for Economic Development Canada and a political minister for Québec.
“I am proud to be a member of this dynamic team under Andrew Scheer’s leadership, which listens to what residents have to say,” said Généreux. “Unlike the 40 Liberal MPs from Québec who haven’t spoken up, I would be a strong voice standing up for the residents in Montmagny–L’Islet–Kamouraska–Rivière-du-Loup. The choice in the upcoming election is clear: make things better with the Conservatives or keep paying the price for Justin Trudeau’s mistakes.”
