Québec Solidaire presents its economic team

UPDATE DAY

Québec Solidaire wants to come out of the shadows and wants to rely on its economic team.  

The parliamentary leader of the party, Gabriel Nadeau-Dubois, is of the opinion that in the past, some have had prejudices towards Québec solidaire and the economy. 

“There is a perception that Québec Solidaire has no vision, has no economic proposals. Me, I want to tackle these prejudices, I want to break this perception, “he says. 

To do this, QS has also put in the best economic team of its history.

“We have people who come from the banking sector. We have people who know the workings of our economic system. We have a vision of the economy that is different from other political parties. It's been 30 years in Quebec that we try the same old vision all the time, “says Mr. Nadeau-Dubois. ;

“On the one hand, there are those who think that money grows on trees. Who think that there is always room for more taxes, more taxes, more deficits, more debts”, he had already said. 

Gabriel Nadeau-Dubois affirms look forward to debating with the Prime Minister, especially regarding the economy.

“It's not true that there is just one vision,” he believes. 

While Caquists, Liberals and Conservatives promise tax cuts, solidarity wants to stand out.

“There will be no wall-to-wall tax cuts, because there are people in Quebec who are making money and who do not need their taxes are lowered. But there are also people who need air, ”insists the parliamentary leader of QS.

Gabriel Nadeau-Dubois promises a balanced financial framework. 

“Yes, we have ambition, but we also have rigor. We are going to seek new revenues to finance our new expenses. And I won't be on the defensive,” he says.
