Dominique Anglade presented his candidate in Sherbrooke, François Vaes.
The leader of the Liberal Party of Quebec (PLQ) Dominique Anglade was at the Marché de la gare on Thursday evening to announce the candidacy of François Vaes in the riding of Sherbrooke.
The owner of Vignoble Bromont, in Brigham, is not in his first election campaign. He was a candidate for the PLQ in Johnson in 2018. He then came in fourth place. He says he chose to make the jump to Sherbrooke since he has lived there for fifteen years.
The Liberal Party is a great party. For me, values such as economic development, social justice, are values that attract me a lot. I am convinced that the Liberal Party can really make a change in the lives of Quebecers, he underlines.
If he is elected, Mr. Vaes undertakes in particular to expand and upgrade the Mitchell-Montcalm school, which he describes as a glaring file.
Recall that a few weeks ago, the Ministry of Education refused, for the third time, the project to build a new Mitchell secondary school -Montcalm. According to François Vaes, the establishment is overflowing, is dilapidated, and needs major investments.
“I'm a middle-of-the-road guy, I'm a guy who will tear my shirt off for the Sherbrooke residents' projects. We do not bring pre-made projects, we will create them together. »
