While the 3rd link has fueled discussions since the launch of the electoral campaign, it was the Liberals’ turn on Wednesday to be questioned on the subject.
To know if they would be present in the financial package for the construction of the Quebec-Lévis tunnel, candidate Chrystia Freeland, passing through the region, first mentioned the importance of the fight against climate change.
“For us, this is a key position. It is a cornerstone in all of our policy. That is why, when we talk about infrastructure, for our party, the priority is public transit. It is for this reason that we have already financed $ 1.2 billion in the tramway, ”she recalled.
Asked to further clarify her position, Ms. Freeland added “that it is an issue that we can continue to analyze when we receive concrete plans, as we do with all plans.”
“However, I will add one thing. We very much appreciate the very fruitful collaboration with the government of Premier Legault. Personally, I work in close collaboration with Mr. Éric Girard. We exchange texts often and I think that we have really shown that our government can deliver the goods, ”she said.
In addition, the negotiations surrounding the buyout of the Quebec Bridge should be successful soon, promises the candidate in University-Rosedale.
“With Jean-Yves [Duclos], we made the decision to resolve the situation. We are in the process of doing it. Our negotiator is negotiating with CN. The negotiations are going very very well. I want to reassure all Quebecers and the citizens of this magnificent city that it will be resolved immediately, ”continued Ms. Freeland.
It is Yvon Charest, a well-known personality in Quebec, who acts as representative for the federal government.
