On Sunday afternoon, the leader of the Black Cubacos, Yves-Franకోois Blanchett, stopped with the La Grande Cowley Beer Festival in Mont Orford, where many young people came to show their support.

“This is a rebuttal to the myth that all our supporters have white hair and are in a wheelchair,” Mr Blanchett said.

With a smile, the party leader went to meet voters on Sunday. He did not deny that he changed his attitude during the campaign. “When people express enthusiasm, and in recent days, we feel a lot of excitement, we are lighter and go more towards people,” he said.

Mark-Antoine Sylvestre was very happy to visit the festival and meet the Black Cubacois team. “I’m happy to see the chef because we see him on television, but there, we have the opportunity to meet him in person.”

He noted the growing interest in Black Cubacois among the youth around him. “It is a foregone conclusion that those who vote for the Black are the oldest,” he said.

Since the campaign began, the block leader has often received encouragement from voters or old activists on his travels.

Marilou Allery, a candidate in the Brom-Mississippi Riding, was accompanied by Mr. Blanchett. “It’s a festive place. We’re happy to be here and raise glass in the countryside,” she said.

“I want people to participate”

Late in the afternoon, people gathered in Cowansville to welcome the Black team.

I ask everyone to vote. I want people to participate. When I see 50% turnout rates, I’m worried dramatically about the municipal election in a few weeks.

“Actually, I have a preference if people put an X next to the name of a Black Cubacois candidate,” the leader said.

The leader of the Black Cubacos is expected to make a “call for tolerance” on Monday evening. “Depending on the constituency, sometimes the results are clear, but sometimes it’s too strong, it can take two or three days for the results to come. We have to be patient. Mr Blanchett reiterated his desire to get 40 seats, 8 more than in the last election.

“We want a strong delegation to Ottawa. That’s what we wanted from the beginning. Mr Blanchett is awesome, but he needs us and he has a lot of files, so we want to share the work. The more people we have, the more efficient we are,” he said.To me Alari.

M. Blanchett and MTo me Alari reiterated their desire to become a minority government. “Minority government is definitely an advantage to Black Cubacois. When you are in the minority, you have to come to an understanding with others and seek consensus. If the minority government wants to move its projects forward and approve its laws, Quebec must be able to stay on the table and give its agreement,” Mr suggested.To me Alari.
