In his past as a political analyst, Martin Biron criticized the lack of traffic studies to support the creation of a tunnel between Quebec and Lévis at a cost of $6.5 billion .  

“There is a project office in place, we will answer questions. I am confident that quickly at the start of the next term, we will be able to answer these questions, ”added the new candidate.  

At his side, Prime Minister Legault specified that studies already exist. “You have to refine them,” he says, in particular to take into account the pandemic and teleworking. “But for me, as Martine said, it's obvious that we need a new link,” says Mr. Legault.
