Legault Outlines Plans for Quebec

Francois Legault

CBJ — Quebec Premier-designate Francois Legault says one of his first issues will be dealing with the impact of the new United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement.

A discussion with the federal government about the new trade pact and its impact on local farmers ias high on Legault’s to-do list as he outlined his immediate plans during a news conference in Quebec City.

The USMCA deal has been denounced by dairy farmers, including those in Quebec.

Legault’s Coalition Avenir swept the Liberals out of office while securing a strong majority government, winning 74 of the province’s 125 ridings.

The Coalition’s victory marks the first time a party other than the Liberals or the Parti Quebecois will govern the province in nearly 50 years.
