Charest interview on CJAD [LISTEN]
Premier Jean Charest's "Pour le Quebec" tour bus made a stop this morning at Fort and Ste. Catherine.
Charest told Andrew Carter that the opposition parties are to blame for this summer election.
"For a year now our adversaries have been asking for an election campaign," he said. "I think the time is right for Quebecers to speak on what kind of society they want to live in.
The prospect of a PQ government is scary, he said. Yesterday he told the Gazette that if Anglos want another referendum, they should stay home on September fourth. Here's what he told Andrew what to expect if Pauline Marois wins.
"Do we want to live in a society where it's the street and referendums, because that is what Mme. Marois is proposing."
He also tackled health care. Charest responded to Francois Legault's proposal to have a family doctor for every Quebecer. Legault was, of course, a former PQ health minister.
"The fact that Francois Legault was there, putting them into retirement and here we are 10 years later still fighting to re-establish the number of doctors and nurses we've had."
