Today, I went to the office of Minister Isabelle Melançon, also a candidate in Verdun, to denounce her complicity in the Quebec government’s decision to allow oil drilling in Quebec’s lakes and rivers.
A responsible society cannot tolerate such acts that go against the interests of citizens. We urge the Minister to assume her responsibilities and denounce the pro-oil policies of her administration, which continues to pay $300 million per year in subsidies to the oil industry.
I would like to thank Vincent J. Carbonneau, candidate in Mont-Royal-Outremont and Alice Sécheresse, candidate in Gouin, for their participation and involvement in the cause.
Leader of the Green Party of Quebec
