Quebec Elections: Legault Enters Territory Strongly Contested by Conservatives
Coalition Avenir Quebec leader Francois Legault holds a press conference this morning in a drive strongly contested by Quebec’s fledgling Conservative Party.
South of Quebec City and bordering the United States, Beauce-Sud is located in an area of the province known for its conservative politics and entrepreneurial spirit.
The CAQ won the ride in 2018, but polls suggest it has become a battle between Legault’s party and the Conservatives, who played no part in the last election but are seriously contesting a number of rides in the region.
