Suffering from severe flu-like symptoms, Parti Québécois leader Paul St-Pierre-Plamonton canceled all of his election campaign activities this Friday.
The day after the debate, where his performance was praised by all political analysts, the PQ leader had to suspend his campaign due to high fever.
“I am forced to suspend my activities today due to flu symptoms. I tested negative for COVID twice, but out of caution, I will self-isolate for the day,” he announced on Twitter, stressing that he hopes to be able to start campaigning again soon.
Already yesterday evening, following the debate at the Bistro Ste-Cat, the PQ leader was to go to a militant rally. Exhausted, he finally decided to return to the hotel immediately. Throughout the night, the leader of the PQ suffered from symptoms.
He held a two-hour discussion with four other party leaders in the same room. Before the debate, he shook several hands on a short walk outside Radio-Canada’s home.
Today, the premier was expected to address members at the 80th annual congress of the Quebec Federation of Municipalities (FQM).
Finally Véronique Venne, candidate for Joliet, will give a speech.
In addition to several interviews, the president will take to the streets of Montreal to participate in a global strike for climate justice. He was to participate in this demonstration in the company of the Parti Québécois, in particular, with the group of Pierre Nantel.
In the short term, the leader considered campaigning near a large metropolitan area. He should be on the show this Sunday where everyone is talking about it.
At the end of the election campaign, the PSPP could move back to Gaspésie and the North Shore if its health is good enough.
