The campaign in pictures – day 14: Éric Duhaime is in trouble


Over the next 36 days, our journalists and photographers in the field will follow the 2022 election campaign in real time by collecting exclusive images and snapshots. Here is an overview of the 14th day of the campaign in photos and images.

1) Éric Duhaime looks back on our revelations yesterday about his unpaid municipal taxes. “I have the responsibility to make sure that the taxes are paid. I take full responsibility, I am accountable,” he says.

2) Before answering questions about his taxes, Éric Duhaime pledged to convene a Mental Health Summit and youth in the first hundred days of his government.

3) Québec solidaire has withdrawn a leaflet inviting students from the University of Sherbrooke to change their address in order to vote in the two local ridings, where the party has hopes.

4) The Liberal Party of Quebec promises to pay all the municipal taxes for its buildings in order to improve the cities' revenues. 

5) The CAQ encrypts the cost of its new promises to $30 billion by 2026-2027. The financial framework unveiled Saturday morning by François Legault and Eric Girard provides for a deficit, after payment to the Generations Fund (FDG), much larger than what was forecast in the pre-election report.  

6) An angry citizen tries to arrest François Legault when he leaves the theater where he was revealing his financial framework. She holds him responsible for her grandmother's death. “She died like a dog!” she shouts to the bodyguards before walking away.

7) As soon as the angry citizen moved away, other citizens came to shake hands with the chief caquist, who came out of his bus. A voter praises him for admitting his mistakes on occasion.

9) Accusing the government of not paying enough attention to domestic violence issues, the leader of the Parti Québécois has promised to create a ministry to full part of the Status of Women, if elected.

10) conservatives land in Limoilou. 

9) In an effort to improve air quality in Limoilou, the curators intend to “strongly suggest” to the administration port that the transhipment of nickel be done in Lévis rather than in Quebec. 

10) Liberal leader Dominique Anglade is in North Hatley for a second day in a row, in the riding of Orford, which became a CAQ in 2018.

11) Dominique Anglade is at the Magog Harvest Festival this afternoon. 

12) CAQ chef François Legault stops in Sanguinet for a militant dinner. His candidate Christine Fréchette (ex-employee of MTL international) congratulates him for campaigning and making commitments every day, when he could have “take it easy”, according to her.
