Parti Quebecois: Project and Fruition Legault

parti quebecois: The Liberals and Parti Quebecois, who both hold ridings on the island of Montreal, publicly supported the project, despite acknowledging the embryonic plan was many years away if it ever came to fruition, according to The Chronicle Herald. Legault and his party, which is popular in the far-flung suburban ridings surrounding the greater Montreal area, weren't enamoured of the project. Valerie Plante's pink line helped her win the 2017 municipal election as Montrealers dreamed of a shiny new transit project with stations to be named after women and minorities who helped build the multicultural city. We have concluded it's not the priority, Legault told reporters at his party's convention in May. And while the party has one or two chances of picking up a Montreal riding, its political base is in Quebec City and the surrounding areas known as the regions. Pollsters have indicated the Coalition, which was created in 2011 and has never held power, can win the Oct. 1 provincial election without any of the 27 ridings on the island of Montreal.
