As wrote Le Journal yesterday, the tenors of the sovereigntist movement are active in this campaign to give a boost to the troops of Paul St-Pierre Plamondon, among whom many are new to provincial politics.
Sunday morning, in Sainte-Germaine-Boulé, in Abititi-Ouest, François Gendron, who represented the riding from 1976 to 2018, was present to support candidate Samuel Doré.
On day 1 of the campaign , Véronique Hivon herself presented the candidate Véronique Venne to the activists.
In party rallies, it is not uncommon to see Bloc MPs. In Sainte-Julie, in Verchères, on day 2 of the campaign, there were notably the deputies Stéphane Bergeron, Martin Champoux and Simon-Pierre Savard-Tremblay.
But the leader Yves-François Blanchet did not not seen yet.
“He was in Chambly a few days ago with my wife, my children were there. I couldn't be there, first explained Mr. St-Pierre Plamondon. For our candidate Marie-Laurence [Desgagné], he was there, he helped us and he is welcome.”
Then, questioned again, he finally announced that we would see them together by the end of the campaign. “I don't have my calendar, but that's for sure,” he said. The party confirms that it will be more in the second half of the campaign.
“The Bloc MPs and the entire Bloc team and Yves-François [Blanchet] have been there all the time everywhere and we appreciate it enormously,” he added.
Moreover, some thirty PQ candidates either campaigned for the Bloc Québécois, or ran for it, or are former -employees.
Samuel Doré, for his part, was a political attaché in Mr. Gendron's office. “A few months ago, he was the one who called me and he said, 'Samuel, I think you have to take this seriously,' which I did,” the candidate explained.  ;
Mr. Gendron is always on the phone to offer advice if needed, they meet people during activities. “Of course, after 40 years, Mr. Gendron, in people's hearts, is still the MP here,” he adds before adding that the CAQ did not deliver the goods in the region.
