François Legault would have been a “correct prime minister in 1992”, before the climate emergency took over, said Friday the co-spokesperson of Québec solidaire, Gabriel Nadeau-Dubois, a few hours before a march for the climate in which the chef caquiste will not participate.
The day after the debate of the leaders of Radio-Canada – during which the two leaders had sent volleys of green wood to one side and the other of the plateau –, Mr. Nadeau-Dubois added a layer, Friday morning.
“Once again, François Legault, instead of proposing to Quebecers a plan to fight against climate change, well, he spent the debate crying against the plan of Quebec solidaire”, raised the co-porte- joint word.
On several occasions Thursday, the CAQ leader had said of the solidarity plan in the fight against climate change that it had a “noble” objective, but that it was “magic”. “It’s a bit like being in Wonderland,” he told his opponent, who told him he should “put away the Halloween decorations” and “stop scaring people. “.
François Legault has thus demonstrated that he was a head of state from another era, according to Mr. Nadeau-Dubois. ” [Il] demonstrated that he would have been an excellent prime minister… uh, let’s say, a decent prime minister in 1992, when the fight against climate change was not the highest priority for an entire generation”, illustrated the Solidarity spokesperson on Friday morning.
Gabriel Nadeau-Dubois and Dominique Anglade are the only two leaders of the five major parties to have confirmed their participation in the climate march organized Friday in downtown Montreal. The Coalition avenir Québec and the Parti Québécois — due to the absence of Paul St-Pierre Plamondon due to illness — have sent contingents of candidates.
On Friday, François Legault justified himself by saying that he was “meeting the citizens”. “There are 11 days left” before the ballot, he noted on the sidelines of a press scrum.
As for the Conservative Party of Quebec, it will not be represented by its leader, Éric Duhaime. “I do not participate in any demonstration or almost not. Except those that we organize, “he said only when asked about his absence on Friday.
