Quebec City: Quebec and Tory Leader

quebec city: The Quebec premier said at the time he wanted to launch a vast coast-to-coast discussion in the hopes of having the province's distinct character officially recognized, according to National Observer. Scheer told reporters he had read Couillard's proposal, and it's normal for a Quebec leader to be focused on the issue. During a trip with his family to Quebec City, the Tory leader said Premier Philippe Couillard's plan included some very interesting proposals. ; Couillard announced last May he hoped to create favourable conditions that could lead to the eventual reopening of constitutional negotiations, and to Quebec finally approving the 1982 Constitution. I've had discussions with my colleagues on the question said Scheer, adding We will find practical things we can do with it. Last spring, when The Canadian Press first reported on Couillard's plan, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said he was against the idea. Our electoral program in 2019 will talk about issues important to Quebec, he said, without giving details. ( As reported in the news.
