Dominique Anglade to meet with economic stakeholders from Saguenay–Lac-Saint-Jean

Today, the Liberal Critic for Economy, Ms. Dominique Anglade, will meet with economic stakeholders from Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean and is asking the Premier, Mr. François Legault, to form a regional table to find concrete actions by mobilizing workers, City Hall and Investissement Québec in an effort to support the region’s economy.

On October 16, forty-eight hours after a meeting between the leaders of Rio Tinto and the Premier, we learned that the multinational company had postponed 300 million dollars in investments to its factories in Arvida and Alma due to the market price for aluminum.

Ms. Dominique Anglade wants to know what really went on during that meeting as Mr. Legault’s Twitter account indicated that numerous investment projects in the aluminum sector were discussed.

The MNA representing Saint-Henri–Sainte-Anne also seized the opportunity presented by Question Period to raise awareness with the Premier and the Minister of Economy about the impacts that postponing these projects would have on the region. Ms. Anglade invited the government to listen to and support the region’s economic stakeholders rather than look for a guilty party.

Instead of blaming the previous government for abandoning two promising projects in Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean, the Premier should use his energy to encourage and support entrepreneurs with promising economic projects. Mr. Legault needs to sit down with economic stakeholders as quickly as possible in order to support the regional economy.

– Dominique Anglade, MNA representing Saint-Henri–Sainte-Anne and Liberal Critic for Economy
