Quebec election: Legault heads to CAQ stronghold as Anglade visits Laval – Montreal


Coalition Avenir Québec (CAQ) Leader François Legault will be campaigning in the Centre-du-Quebec region one day after his party released its costed platform.

The incumbent premier is scheduled to hold a rally with supporters Sunday afternoon in the Drummond–Bois-Francs riding, where his party received more than 50 per cent of the vote in 2018.
