Return of austerity to PLQ, according to one expert: “It’s a wrong move”

One of the main moments of the General Committee of the Liberal Party of Quebec (PLQ) will be a return to basics at the economic level, with possible discussions on austerity measures. For a political communications director, it was a poor decision on their part.

“It was a good start for the Liberal Party of Quebec, we saw all the leaders gathered under one roof, it’s been a long time since we’ve seen that from the PLQ,” underlines Director of Public Relations Jeremy Keo Tactic.

“For me, the one wrong move over the weekend was to bring liberal austerity back to the table,” he adds.

It will bring back bad memories for Quebecers of previous governments. Mr. According to Keo, in the long run, such a choice would harm liberals.

Liberal MP Frédéric Beauchemin announced during Congress Saturday morning that Quebec needs to hire more teachers and that it won’t happen by cutting public spending. According to Jeremy Keough, it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the CAQ’s financial management, let alone austerity.

The director cites an example: “For example, the party could have said it would not have sent the $600 check and had not reduced the taxes.”

He says this position would have been more profitable for the self-proclaimed “the only party of the economy” than bringing back the liberal austerity that rocked them during the 2018 elections.

If the PLQ has chosen to “extend the sass” of the race for the leadership of the PLQ until January 2025, the director must see that it is ultimately a good decision.

At the time of writing, five candidates have expressed interest: Frédéric Beauchemin, Karl Blackburn, Denis Coderre, Charles Millard and Antoine Tardif.

The race starts in January 2025, but contestants have until April to submit their applications. The next chief election will be held in June 2025.
