In an interview with TVA Novelles, Mr Labim said he was skeptical of the man and would support the candidate next fall.

He said the man should be familiar with the Quebec City files, be sympathetic and listen well.

The next four years will not be easy with tramway construction and awareness-raising work.

“There’s someone, I’m not saying in my team, but it takes someone who knows the file, knows the business, knows the numbers. It also takes a person who is very empathetic because it can be a little aggressive, ”he said.

“It simply came to our notice then. That fact must be taken into account. “

Message to Sam Hamad

Mayor LaBeouf took advantage of this interview to throw a little spade at former Liberal Minister Sam Hamad, who may finally be tempted by the Quebec mayor after saying he was not interested this winter.

“Isn’t he coming for family reasons?” Maybe we will talk about it again … ”

In the case of already announced candidates or those who can participate in the race, Regis Labum may still be on their way.

“I may have memories to bring back to a lot of people.”
