SAINT-SAUVEUR — Presented as a “rock star” by the leader of the CAQ, François Legault, Marguerite Blais confirmed Friday that it will bear the colors of this party in Prévost during the next election campaign.
The ex-liberal minister, responsible for the file of the Elders, also dedicate themselves to the cause of the defence of the elders and family caregivers.
She admitted to having been approached by liberal leader Philippe Couillard, even before the Coalition avenir Québec, but she chose the CAQ because François Legault has agreed to on-the-field his five proposals for advancing the cause of family caregivers and seniors, she said during a press conference in Saint-Sauveur.
Among these proposals, one finds the development “everywhere in Quebec” of houses Gilles Carle, these homes which provide respite care for family caregivers taking care of a sick person, and by offering various services.
Mr. Legault has also made a clear commitment to adopt “an effective policy for family caregivers”, which appealed to Ms. Blais.
Interestingly, the artist Chloé Ste-Marie, who has been pleading for years for the cause of family caregivers, having assisted the filmmaker Gilles Carle for years, was present at the official announcement of his candidacy in Saint-Sauveur.
It has provided support to Ms. Blais. And, during a press briefing that followed, she admitted to support the party that would be the cause, so she is.
Mr. Legault did not hide his pride to have been able to attract into its ranks, Ms. Blais, saying inspire “jealousy” among the other parties, since Ms. Blais is a personality that people find likeable and sincere.
