A DEBATE BETWEEN THE TWO CANDIDATES FOR THE CPQ LEADERSHIP
 
Montreal, March 1st, 2021 - A first televised debate between the two leadership candidates of the Conservative Party of Québec (CPQ) will be presented live on CMATV on Tuesday, March 2nd, 2021 at 8 p.m., as well as on YouTube and Facebook. CMATV CEO Michel Montminy will host the event.

The 2 candidates who will meet on the stage, Daniel Brisson and Éric Duhaime, wish to firmly establish the CPQ in the Quebec National Assembly from the next election.

The PCQ has multiplied its membership by 12 since last fall, reaching nearly 8,000 members by the end of February. Almost as much as the number of CAQ members in the last election.

The leadership race was sparked last fall by the announcement of the resignation of CPQ leader Adrien Pouliot. He will leave the reins of the Party on April 17th, 2021, when members will choose the new leader.

The subjects dealt with during the debate on March 2nd will be:

• The pandemic: what reform of the health system?
• Free speach: how to defend it?
• The economy: what stimulus?
• Politics and democracy: are we in autocracy?
 

The questions will not be known in advance by the candidates.

THE QUEBEC CONSERVATIVE PARTY SUPPORTS THE LNG QUÉBEC PROJECT

For immediate release

THE QUEBEC CONSERVATIVE PARTY SUPPORTS THE LNG QUÉBEC PROJECT

Québec, 20 octobre 2020 - "In order to have sustainable development, you first need development! "

This is what Adrien Pouliot, leader of the Québec Conservative Party (QCP), mentioned when the Party tabled a brief with the BAPE in support of LNG Québec's liquefied natural gas project in the Saguenay.

According to the QCP, the obsession of opponents of the project to limit their analysis to the ecological footprint in Quebec is completely counterproductive and the risks, especially those to beluga whales, are low.

The QCP recognizes in the brief that all human development activity involves an environmental risk, but also real and measurable benefits. In this instance, the nature of the risks and the mitigation strategies put forward by GNL Québec make the project acceptable. This is what a majority of respondents seem to believe in a September survey on social acceptability among the local population of Saguenay.

“The Conservative Party of Québec considers that there are obvious benefits for not only the local community, but also for Québec, Canada and many countries that will accrue from a new source of supply of cleaner fuel that emits less GHGs than the ones they use”, added André Valiquette, president of the Policy Commission of the Party.

"The BAPE must give the Government a favorable opinion on the project while recommending that the best commercially viable practices in terms of construction and operation be deployed by GNLQ to ensure an environmentally friendly and profitable project" concluded Jimmy Voyer, vice-president of the Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean region for the Party.
