After Rimouski, it will head towards the tip of the Gaspé Peninsula, making a few stops in Matane and Sainte-Anne-des-Monts.

On Sunday, Paul Saint-Pierre Plamondon will also be in Gaspé to participate in the nomination meeting of MP Méganne Perry Mélançon. The latter announced in March that she would seek a second term.

He recalls that the Gaspésienne was twice named a rising star of politics in the National Assembly by her peers. She is the first female MNA in Gaspé, the youngest as well, so really, we have some great candidates.he points out.

Mr. Saint-Pierre Plamondon will also take advantage of his visit to unveil the vision of the QP in regional development.

In the last election, the majority of MNAs elected in the three regions of Est-du-Québec were part of the QP.

Deputies in Bas-Saint-Laurent:

(Two PQ MPs out of a total of four MPs)

Deputies in Gaspésie and the Îles-de-la-Madeleine:

(Two PQ MPs out of a total of three MPs)

Deputies on the North Shore:

(Two PQ MPs out of a total of two MPs)

However, following announcements of non-renewal of the mandate of some PQ members, many are wondering if the QP lost the attraction it had. To this question, Paul Saint-Pierre Plamondon replies that the party must be given a chance to assert itself through the quality of the candidates he presents and his ideas.

Of course, it becomes a little impossible if we always talk about a pessimistic scenario for a party and if we do not assess the real results of the current government. The truth is that the Parti Québécois has something unique to offer, dedicated and appreciated MPshe says.

The Parti Québécois is whole people, good ideas, so we want to be evaluated on that and not on the narratives that they try to stick to us. At some point, you have to be evaluated for what you say and what you are. »

He adds that his party’s MPs are not afraid to stand up for citizens and speak out loud and clear on their behalf on issues such as the housing crisis, health care and child care spaces.

In all these issues, we talk, we act and we manage to get things moving. »

He cites, as an example of involvement in the housing crisis file, the efforts made by Méganne Perry Mélançon.

It is the only one that has really carried this file and that has arrived with the right of first refusal, which will allow municipalities to speed up social housing. […] We are also the party that offers 5,000 social housing units per yearhe says.

The leader of QP indicates that there is, by the very fact, succession within the party, in particular in Rimouski, to take up the torch of Harold Lebel. An investiture ceremony will also take place on May 21 in this constituency.
