QUÉBEC 2018 ELECTION

Like its neighbour to the east, New Brunswick, the 2018 Québec General Election is well into its third week. For the first time in decades "la question nationale" appears to have less importance in this campaign.
Of course, mainstay issues such as the state of the healthcare system, education, economy and job creation remain, though immigration and integration and how quickly new arrivals learn the French language seem to be of importance. In fact, Premier Phillippe Couillard framed the ballot question as being on immigration levels in connection to the labour shortage.
According to Quebec125.com, an online project that makes projections on the upcoming election based on recent opinion polls, the Coalition Avenir Québec (CAQ) could receive 35% of the popular vote and gives the party an over 50% chance of forming a majority government.
The first of three televised debates, including one in English, has come and gone. At times the debate was cacophonic which made it difficult to clearly understand the what the leaders were trying to get across to voters.
All of the parties believe they have the best team to lead Québec until 2022. This is why WaterToday has reached out to the Coalition Avenir Québec (CAQ), Parti Libéral du Québec (PLQ), Parti Québécois (PQ), Parti Vert du Québec (PVQ), and Québec Solidaire (QS).
We asked them about water security, health and protection of our waterways, improving wastewater and stormwater treatment, environmental protection and fight against climate change and renewable energy. WaterToday issues.
In the coming days, we will bring you what came out of our communications with the parties on these subjects. In our first instalment, we look at Québec Solidaire.
