(Covensville) On the last day of the election campaign there were young people in Estri to promote Black Cupocois.
On Sunday afternoon, Yves-Franசois Blanchett, leader of the Black Cupois, was stopped by the La Grande Coolie Beer Festival in Mont Arbor, where many young people came to show their support.
“This is to refute the myth that all of our supporters are white-haired and wheelchair-bound,” Mr Blanchett said.
With a smile, the party leader went to meet voters on Sunday. He did not deny that he changed his attitude during the campaign. “When people express excitement, in recent days, we feel so excited, we feel lighter and we move more towards people,” he said.
Mark-Antoine Sylvestre was very happy to attend the festival and meet the Black Quebecois group. “I’m glad to see the chef because we see him on TV, but there, we have the opportunity to meet him in person.”
He notices a growing interest in Black Quebecois among the youth around him. “Voting for the constituency is a preconceived notion that people are the oldest,” he said.
From the beginning of the campaign, the constituency leader often receives encouragement from voters or old activists on his travels.
Brom-Mississauga ride candidate Marilo Allardy attended with Mr. Blanchett. “It’s a festive place. We’re glad to be here and raise our glass in the countryside,” he said.
“I want people to participate”
At the end of the afternoon, people gathered in Cowensville to welcome the group.
The party leader used the opportunity to invite all Cubs to vote on Monday.
I urge everyone to vote. I want people to participate. When I look at the 50% turnout, I’m dramatically worried about the upcoming municipal elections in a few weeks.

“Of course, I would like the people to put X next to the name of the Quebec candidate,” the leader said.
The head of the block Quebecois expects to make a “call for patience” on Monday evening. “Depending on the constituency, sometimes the results are clear, but sometimes it’s very tight. It can take two or three days to get results. We have to be patient.
We want a strong delegation to Ottawa. This is what we wanted from the beginning. Mr. Blanchett is great, but he needs us, he has a lot of files, so we want to share the work. The more we are, the more talented we will be, ”he said.Me Allari
M. Blanchett and MMe Allari reiterated their desire for a minority government. “A minority government is definitely a benefit to Quebecois. When you are a minority, you have to come to an understanding with others and seek consensus. If the minority government wants to advance its plans and accept its laws, it must be at the Quebec table and give its agreement,” he said.Me Allari
Blanket helps Haider
Earlier in the day, Mr Enzaf Haider, the wife of jailed Saudi blogger Raif Badawi, was asked to provide an incentive. Blanchett arrived.
“I prefer someone who wakes up with an uncertain Frenchman to one who sits with a good Frenchman,” constituency president Yves-Franசois Blanchett pleaded on Sunday in support of his candidate, Enzab Haider, in Sherbrook.
MMe Haider was criticized by his opponents for his more or less proficient French.
Do Sherbrook residents need someone to talk to or do they need someone to act?
Enzoff Haider, the Black Cubecois candidate in Sherbrook, appeared before a group of young block supporters who came to promote him.
Mr Badawi was sentenced in 2012 to 10 years in prison for criticizing the regime: the constituency reiterated its call for party leaders who want to form the next federal government to ensure the return of Rif Badawi to Quebec. Weeks following the election.
