The Conservative Party of Canada (CPC) leadership candidate Jean Charest believes Canada will occupy an important position in the eyes of the new king. The candidate also met with Charles III when he was Premier of Quebec.
“The new King Charles III will be very interested in Canada, according to Jean Charest. He knows the country very well. I first met him in 1992 and saw him again when I was prime minister. […] He speaks French very well.
The conservative candidate did not hide his optimism in an interview with LCN, emphasizing that Charles III is interested in issues such as the environment and sustainable development.
Jean Charest has fond memories of Queen Elizabeth II, whom she met at a state dinner at Château Frontenac, following the Mitch Lake Constitutional Accord, a constitutional reform project that was eventually repealed.
“Although she should always be above politics, she was a supporter of the Meech Lake agreement,” she said. This indicated that this is an important step for the country. For the rest, she has always been a lady of duty. This is indeed a great era and a great page that we are turning in the world with the death of the Queen.
