Quebec Politicians Gearing Up For October Election

The last legislative session before the October elections in Quebec is going to be a super thrilling one. All the political parties will be looking to raise their voices and concerns in order to score some brownie points before the elections. The Quebec Premier Philippe Couillard says that the last National Assembly of Quebec is going to be a busy one.

The lawmakers have 47 days to propose new laws in Quebec. They can make attention-grabbing speeches and motions and other strategies before the summer break. The official election campaign begins on August 29. The Premier is looking to make good use of every opportunity he gets. He said that he still has a lot to do and will look to govern in the right way leading up to the elections.

The ruling Liberals are in a good position at the moment with a boosted economy and loads of money in the coffers. The last budget that Liberals will present will give importance to solving the traffic and transportation issues. It will also touch upon anti-poverty drive and boost the quality of life for the Quebecers.

The Parti Québécois and the Coalition Avenir Québec are also in the fray. They will raise the language and the identity questions. There will be more and more candidates coming out later with aspirations of ruling Quebec.
