The candidate for the Conservative Party of Canada (CPC) in the Pontiac, Michel Gauthier, believes that the federal government should, in the future, put in place structures and incentives so that the country is able to produce vaccines at home and for the manufacture of vaccines, personal protective equipment, masks and respirators. “So that we never again relive the embarrassing quest for vaccines across the world and the delays in vaccination that followed,” said Michel Gauthier. He believes that the country must resume dialogue with pharmaceutical companies.
Michel Gauthier also referred to the health transfer to the provinces. “The day after the election, a Conservative government will ensure that transfers are increased in a stable, predictable and unconditional fashion. There is no question of playing politics with this issue by trying to impose constraints on the provinces and push the button of centralization of powers in Ottawa, "explained Michel Gauthier.
An electoral slogan for Quebec
A sign that the elections could take place in the coming weeks, leader Erin O’Toole announced the CPC slogan in Quebec. “Agir pour le Québec” is what was chosen by the CPC, which even referred to the defense of the French language.
“The events of the past few months are clear. No other party is ready to defend and advance the priorities of Quebecers in Ottawa. Quebeckers deserve a government that will act on their priorities, act for economic recovery, act to defend the French language and their culture, and act to put an end to liberal corruption. The reality is that the Liberals do not want, the Bloc cannot, only the Conservative Party can and wants to act for Quebec, ”said Conservative Leader Erin O’Toole.
“There is no question of going for election until the current vaccination campaign is completed. If the current government forces, directly or indirectly, an irresponsible hasty election this spring, it will have to pay the price… on polling day. ", Affirmed the candidate of the CPC, Michel Gauthier.
