“People are ready for change. On the one hand there is corruption on the other, shortness of breath. Mr. Legault’s popularity rating in Chicoutimi. Yes, people still say that the party is young. But precisely, we have nothing to be ashamed of. We simply want the chance to have our say in the National Assembly. It has everything to gain with the CAQ, “insists the candidate, who had just completed a tour of polling stations in Chicoutimi.

At least four debates will be held in Chicoutimi, in the coming days. Hélène Girard intends to defend its point of view on all these forums. But she announces at the outset that it does not hold petty about the place of his opponents.
“I do not want to fall into pettiness, low blows. People do not want to hear that. I will respect the other candidates while presenting my ideas, “says Ms. Girard.
