The candidate of the Conservative Party of Canada (CPC), Michel Gauthier, says he is ready to go for an election but says he prefers to focus on the safety of citizens. “I’m ready to go campaigning across the Pontiac today, but the health and safety of citizens is more important than calling a hasty vote. Vaccines before votes”said Michel Gauthier, Conservative Party candidate for Pontiac and spokesperson for the Outaouais region.
According to him, the Liberals want a poll this spring and may try to orchestrate the defeat of their government when the next budget is tabled in April. “No ballot should be called until next fall, and only if the vaccination has quelled the COVID-19 pandemic. Obtaining vaccines and managing vaccination campaigns are more important than launching an electoral campaign in the midst of a pandemic,”reiterates Michel Gauthier.
“We need to get the upper hand on COVID-19 and the only thing that will allow us to do that is vaccines in the arms of Canadians. I want the government to be successful in this regard. I am frustrated like everyone else to see that Canada is at the 50th or 60th place in the deployment of vaccines ", underlined, for his part, the leader of the Conservative Party, Erin O’Toole.
