With only a few days left in the election campaign, Liberal candidate Jean-François Primeau believes he has succeeded in distinguishing himself by his attitude and hopes that the voters of the Châteauguay riding will give him a "strong mandate".

For Mr. Primeau, the attitude refers to the way we work on the files concerning the riding. He uses the drinking water supply in the region as an example. The mayors of the riding have indeed called on Premier François Legault requesting a meeting and financial assistance from the government to upgrade the infrastructures related to the problems of the lagoons in Mercier.

"I quickly took up this request. I made it go through my political party. Mrs. Anglade (leader of the Liberal Party) came here to meet the mayors. I promoted the file. I think that's how an MLA should work," he said.

He indicated that, if elected on October 3rd, this will be the first issue he will work on.

Undecided electorate 

When asked about the fact that his party is struggling to stand out on a national level in order to secure gains, Jean-François Primeau replied that he is focusing on the local level instead. "I feel that people are thinking a lot and that there is a high rate of indecisiveness. I do not see on the field what is reflected in the polls," he explained.

The candidate believes he has embodied "positive, inclusive and unifying" values during the campaign. “The Liberal Party must take over the riding to bring these values to Châteauguay as they were before," he said "There is a symbiosis between the values of the Châteauguay community and the Liberal values."

He had recently condemned the outgoing Prime Minister's statements regarding immigrants as well as the adoption of Bill 96, which, according to him, had shocked members of the English-speaking community.
