Quebec's party leaders to spread out around the province on Labour Day

·1 min read

MONTREAL — Quebec's main party leaders are spreading out around the province on Labour Day, after a Sunday spent campaigning in the Greater Montreal Area.

Liberal Leader Dominique Anglade will be heading east to Trois-Rivières, a day after her party unveiled its costed platform.

Anglade on Sunday revealed a plan that includes $41 billion in spending over the next five years, funded in part by new taxes on the wealthy, on vacant buildings and on web giants.

Her party plans to run annual deficits averaging $5 billion, which Anglade said is necessary to help Quebecers cope with inflation and the rising cost of living.

Coalition Avenir Québec Leader François Legault will be heading west to Gatineau, where he'll visit ridings held by both his own party and the rival Liberals.

Québec solidaire co-spokesperson Gabriel Nadeau-Dubois will start his day in Longueuil, where he's promising to announce his party's plan to alleviate the housing crisis, while Parti Québécois Leader Paul St-Pierre Plamondon will make an immigration announcement in the Quebec City region before heading to Rivière-du-Loup.
