Jean-Franకోois Gosselin, head of Quebec 21, believes the tram was “the question of the ballot box” during the municipal ballot during the fall.
The mayoral candidate said the same at a press conference on Wednesday. “This is a historic vote and citizens will decide what the (transportation) project is for the next 50, 75 or 100 years. It’s definitely a question of the ballot box,” he stressed.
Although the Quebec government and the Labyrinth administration confirmed that the tramway was the most favorable project for a Quebec-sized city, Mr Gosselin went on to say that he would invent a project that was “more efficient” and “faster” than his political structure. The week of June 7th is best suited to meet the needs of the population.
He assured us that the millions of dollars invested so far in the light rail project would not be wasted. “We do not throw anything out the window. The work done, studies and all that has been done to date is useful to us,” he stressed.
In the 2017 election, Mr Gosselin insisted that the vote for Quebec 21 be 3 votesE Quebec-Lewis link. However, candidate Gosselin ruled this fall that the mega project was not an election issue. “I talked about 3E Link in 2017. But here we are elsewhere. We have our (public transport) project and it is a location project. We’re going to talk about that. ”
According to him, “This is up to the regional debate (in the Quebec-Lewis tunnel). Investing in the dynamism and subsequent transportation to the Quebec area is what I am doing and compared to what is being given in Montreal ”.
Theirs New candidates
Meanwhile, Quebec 21 announced on Wednesday that Shirley Burns, who has volunteered for various organizations, will be her candidate in Vanier-Duberger. Working in a pre-hospital environment, Mary-Josie Proty demonstrates herself for Quebec 21 in Saint-Roach-Saint-Sauvignon. The two women, who are competing for the first time to become city councilors, were described as “very involved in their community”.
Quebec 21 has also made an election commitment of $ 3.5 million that it wants to draw from the city’s operating budget. Thanks to the general reduction in summer vacation program (PVE) rates, families can save between 5 265 and 20 620 per year, Gosselin guaranteed.
