Tonight, the Green Party of Quebec increased our share of the vote in all four provincial by-elections!
We DOUBLED our score in Arthabaska and Verdun!
In Saint-Jérôme we received 2% of the vote despite not having a candidate there in 2014. In Marie-Victorin we significantly increased our share of the vote!
In all ridings, we beat the Option National party, despite their superior media coverage and financing.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank our candidates Émilianne Lépine in Saint-Jérôme, David J Cox in Verdun and Vincent J. Carbonneau in Marie-Victorin for their excellent work as well as all of our volunteers and particularalary my campaign manager in Arthabaska, Martine Gélinas!
In the 2018 general election, The Green Party of Quebec will present Quebeckers with a clear, credible and dynamic alternative to the status-quo. The results of these by-elections show that our party’s support is increasing and that there is no limit to what we can achieve together!
Leader of the Green Party of Québec
