< p class="sc-v64krj-0 knjbxw">Guy Bourgeois, Jean-Maurice Matte and Arnaud Warolin took stock of their campaign on Tuesday morning.

Jean-Maurice Matte (Abitibi-Est), Guy Bourgeois (Abitibi-Ouest) and Arnaud Warolin (Rouyn-Noranda–Témiscamingue) presented on Tuesday the results of the Quebec Liberal Party (PLQ) campaign in Abitibi-Témiscamingue.

Taking advantage of the opportunity to recall certain key measures proposed by the political formation, Guy Bourgeois first underlines his commitments in terms of decentralization, in particular through the charter of the regions of the PLQ.

This document is the ideal tool for meeting the needs of a region like Abitibi-Témiscamingue. More particularly in Abitibi-Ouest, we have found solutions that are within the charter. It is not given to all the parties to be able to propose initiatives so adapted to our region, he maintains.

The candidate in Rouyn-Noranda–Témiscamingue, Arnaud Warolin, deplores the insufficient place occupied by agriculture during the debates of recent weeks.

[Farmers] need financing that is better suited to their reality. We must review the programs of the Financière agricole du Québec to modulate them according to the territories. It is not the same thing in Saint-Hyacinthe as it is in Saint-Eugène-de-Guigues , he maintains.

Mr. Warolin also recalled the importance of developing the next generation of farmers, as well as his desire to develop secondary and tertiary processing industries in the region.

For his part, Jean-Maurice Matte, candidate in Abitibi-Est, took advantage of the presentation of the results to tarnish the electoral campaign led by the Coalition avenir Québec in recent weeks.

It is clear that the candidates of the CAQ are working to defend a balance sheet, all in all not very good, without proposing concrete measures. We had political party proposals, but proposals applicable to the region, we did not have any, he laments.

According to him, the Liberal Party has proposed more concrete measures specific to Abitibi-Témiscamingue.

In particular, he mentioned the addition of bypasses on Route 117, the acceleration of the construction of a rest area in the La Vérendrye wildlife reserve and the regaining of decision-making powers within regional health establishments.
