The Liberal MNAs will meet at the Entourage sur-le-Lac Resort in Lac Beauport from October 23 to 25 to determine what actions they will take in the coming weeks and prepare for the opening of the National Assembly.

Our team’s combined strengths make us a formidable Official Opposition. The government has things to explain to the people of Québec, and we will ensure that it does so. The opposition critics will invest their time and spare no effort in the coming weeks to ensure that they are on top of their portfolios when the National Assembly reopens. I have confidence in each and every member of the Liberal Caucus, and, together, we will work to revive our party.

– Pierre Arcand, Leader of the Official Opposition.
