MONTREAL — The Coalition avenir Québec (CAQ) to a solid support, while the Quebec liberal Party (QLP) is decreasing in the voting intentions, according to a survey of Lightweight-Duty-Journal de Montreal published Saturday.
According to the survey carried out online on the 4 may 8, with 1018 people, the CAQ collects 35% of the popular favour, a one-point increase since April. The LIBERALS lost three points, and back to the low of 26% recorded in march.
Both the Parti québécois (PQ), to 22%, Québec solidaire at 10 per cent, have seen their support stagnate.
Among francophones, the CAQ gets 41% of voting intentions, against 16% for the liberals and 26% for the PQ.
With these data, Leger believes that the CAQ is on the threshold of a majority government.
Three out of ten respondents believe that the change is more embodied by the CAQ. The party of François Legault is in particular seen as the best to manage the public finances.
The CAQ dominates also in the promotion of québec culture, the protection of the French language and francization of immigrants.
In scrum, on Saturday morning, the chief caquiste has shown himself to be prudent.
“I don’t want nothing for granted. Me, I expect that it tightens”, he argued.
“I admit that our opponents have not had an extraordinary performance in the last few months, so I expect they are getting better, they heal.”
THE CAQ ANNOUNCES 7 NEW CANDIDATES IN MONTREAL
The CAQ has announced seven new candidates for the next elections on the island of Montreal, where the party currently has no mp.
The leader of the CAQ, François Legault, announced Saturday morning the names of those who will be wearing caquistes in several areas of the metropolis.
Among the candidates Julie Séide (Bourassa-Sauvé), Simon Langelier (Laurier-Dorion), Vicky Michaud (Marguerite-Bourgeoys) and Marc Hétu (Marquette).
Sonya Cormier, Janny Gaspard and Michelle Morin will try to get elected, respectively, in the ridings of Rosemont, Viau and Westmount-Saint-Louis.
Mr. Legault said to be “inspired” by the “diversity of interests” among its candidates.
According to him, the liberal Party of Quebec “takes Montreal for granted”, citing as an example the state of the schools “fall into ruin”.
“More and more families think of moving to the suburbs. After 15 years, it is time that these families will say what they think of the liberal government. We have put together for them, the change team, with a view of the 1st October. The island of Montreal does not belong to the liberal Party. It belongs to all Montrealers and all of Québec,” said Mr. Legault in a press release.
