CAQ’s star candidate Bernard Drainville found himself on the defensive yesterday during the first election debate held in Lewis.
The former PQ minister and former radio host arrived at the back of his lecture with a pile of files and two-sided annotated sheets. He had every advantage in being well prepared, as he was quickly targeted by his opponents.
Mr Drainville does not live in Lewis, which has since been criticized by Conservative candidate Karin Laflame. But he’ll be there for the Lewisians, he promises.
Cacquist has also been criticized for putting in democracy and populism. “We’re not here on the radio, this is an official debate”, continued solidarity candidate Valerie Cayoet-Guilloto. Drainville had earned it, believing that those opposed to oil development wanted to shut down Valero in solidarity. This teacher was concerned with great enthusiasm about the effects of climate change on future generations. He is not wrong to claim that young people, for the most part, “have a very different discourse from what we hear today”.
The final part on the dynamic led to several delicious exchanges. CAQ Candidate is asking people to make profession of faith on CAQ Tunnel Project despite lack of studies.
We had to wait until the end for a candidate to see his recent announcement on GHG under Mr. Drainville’s nose. “No, we won’t let you go with GHG,” promised the QS candidate.
For Richard Garrone, a former member of the Canadian Forces representing the PLQ, the debate on mobility issues is distorted compared to Asterix’s 12 actions. Politics has nothing to do with engineering, he insisted, and you should be able to rely on studies.
More retired, PQ Pierre-Gilles Morell reported that the estimated location of the tunnel would not be accessible to enough people.
The Conservative candidate, former president of the Chamber of Commerce of Lewis and former municipal councilor in the team of Mayor Gilles Lehoulier, caused some inconvenience.
Ms. LaFlame had to admit that she was unfamiliar with the concept of supply management. Then, according to him, a tunnel that would pass through le d’Orléans would make it possible “to get to know the local products better”. nothing less.
