Trudeau to make economic announcement in Quebec’s Gaspe region
Trudeau will make an announcement at a wind power plant in Gaspe along with Industry Minister Francois-Philippe Champagne, Lebouthillier and Quebec's energy minister.
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is in Quebec’s Gaspe region on Jul. 14 to make an economic announcement in the latest in a series of campaign-style stops.
The prime minister began his day in Perce, where he hosted an economic roundtable discussion and strolled down the town’s picturesque boardwalk for a photo with local MP and federal Revenue Minister Diane Lebouthillier.
During the opening remarks of the roundtable, Trudeau announced support for upgrades to the wharf at the Port of Cap-aux-Meules in the Iles-de-la-Madeleine and said Ottawa is withdrawing plans to transfer the port to a lower level of government.
Later on Jul. 14, Trudeau will make an announcement at a wind power plant in Gaspe along with Industry Minister Francois-Philippe Champagne, Lebouthillier and Quebec’s energy minister.
Trudeau has refused to confirm whether there will be a fall election, but he has done little to quell the rumours with his recent flurry of travel and spending announcements.
The Gaspesie_Les Iles-de-la-Madeleine riding narrowly remained Liberal in the last election, with Lebouthillier defeating her Bloc Quebecois rival by less than 700 votes.
