In an interview with Radio-Canada, the former finance minister of the Philippe Couillard government confirmed that he would step down from politics at the end of his term. However, Robert-Baldwin plans to make a special contribution to the development of his political party’s election platform, which will be released during the PLQ’s general meeting on June 11.

Carlos Leitão has had plenty of ice time in Salon Bleu in recent weeks as he chased down the Legault government over runway inflation and called for action to reduce its impact on the Cubes. He opened the ball of questions for the Liberals while leader Dominic Anglet was on tour in Caspian.

The 66-year-old liberal citizen would have been 70 by the end of a possible new decree. So his name was added to the list of veterans of the formation who did not start constituencies in the next fall general election. In early May, his colleague Pierre Arcand confirmed he was leaving politics. Mr. Ledao’s departure brought the number of elected officials who did not receive the new mandate to 20 by 2022, almost half of the 27-member Caucasus.

Carlos Leitão was elected MP in 2014 for Robert-Baldwin’s ride. He served as Minister of Finance on the sole mandate of the government of Philippe Couillard (2014-2018) marked by austerity policies.
