The leader of the Parti Québécois (PQ), Paul St-Pierre Plamondon, will make a second visit to the riding of Jonquière on Sunday, on the eve of voting day.
The PQ leader will briefly stop in the region as part of the last blitz of the PQ campaign to be conducted in Eastern Quebec.
Paul St-Pierre Plamondon will accompany Sunday afternoon in Arvida its candidate in Jonquière, Caroline Dubé, at the Parc de la Cité near the Foyer des loisirs, according to information from the partisan event published on Facebook.
Citizens are invited to come and meet the leader at 2:40 p.m., where he will also be accompanied by three other PQ candidates from the region, namely Émile Simard in Dubuc, Alice Villeneuve in Chicoutimi and William Fradette in Lac-Saint-Jean.
This will be Paul St-Pierre Plamondon's second visit to the riding in two weeks.
The PQ leader is trying to keep Jonquière in the bosom of the Parti Québécois, which has held the riding since the election of Sylvain Gaudreault, who is turning the page after 15 years of political life.
If the PQ does not manage to keep a riding in the region, it will be a first since 1973 for the party which had elected Marc-André Bédard in Chicoutimi at the time.
During his previous visit, the PQ leader took part in a militant rally at Côté-Cour in Jonquière, before holding a press conference in Kénogami the next day.
The outgoing Prime Minister, François Legault, also traveled to the region twice during the election campaign. He will be in Chibougamau on Saturday.
Conservative leader Éric Duhaime and Québec solidaire co-spokesperson Gabriel Nadeau-Dubois also visited the region.
Only Liberal leader Dominique Anglade has not campaigned so far in Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean.
