The leader of the Conservative Party of Quebec (PCQ) went door-to-door in jeans and his party hoodie, along with about fifty volunteers, especially on the streets of Val-Bélére. Meanwhile, other volunteers took to the streets of Old Lloret.


Before starting tomorrow, Mr. Duhaime has already collected 9,000 signatures from citizens of the constituency who disagreed with Deputy Cairo’s interpretations of the government’s volte-face in the third annex.

The Conservatives’ ultimate objective will be to obtain more than 50% of the total number of voters in the last election in La Peltrie, representing more than 30,547 signatures.

The leader of the PCQ notes that reaching 19,714 signatures will be the first step towards reaching the number of voters who endorsed Mr Cairo on 3 October. Note that 44,448 people exercised their right to vote in the fall of 2022 in this constituency.

“We’re doing a big door-to-door blitz […] We hope to surpass 10,000 signatures today,” noted Eric Duheim.

Although Eric Caire has made it clear that he has no intention of resigning, the leader of the PCQ will not let go.

On the contrary, he said that he encouraged to collect more signatures and we will collect signatures until he understood.

This week the Conservative group collected donations to campaign against Eric Gair. In total, more than $8,000 was raised in three days, and the amount will fund an advertising campaign that will begin next week to encourage people to sign the petition.

If the Conservatives succeed in registering 30,000 names on the petition, Eric Duheim wants the signatures to be approved by the chief electoral officer, as the organization does with candidates running for election.
