The member for Lac-Saint-Jean Alexandre Cloutier would have expected more concrete measures for the region in Leitao budget, particularly as regards job creation. It notes, however, “good intentions”, but will wait to see how they will translate to the Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean.
“The government has announced investments for road and school infrastructure. I’ll wait to see how these investments will result in concrete terms, particularly as regards the highway Alma-La Baie and the bypass Isle-Maligne, for example. And regarding schools, is that investments represent more money to stay in school? In short, there is still a lot of question, “the MP Alexandre Cloutier said, during an interview with the Daily.
Regional development and job creation continue to preoccupy the deputy. “We are disappointed that cuts of 80 million in the budget for regional development have been renewed and the number of announced jobs created, ie 30 000 per year over the next three years, significantly less than the 250 000 Couillard promised by the government, “said Alexandre Cloutier.
The forestry sector has also attracted the attention of the Member, since money was provided by the government. “Again, we’ll wait to see how these investments will result in us. What we want is the forest in job creation, “noted Mr. Cloutier.
He also said that the loser of this budget is the health community and would have liked the government announced more investment in the education sector.
