François Legault says if his party's conditions are met it could prop-up the Parti Quebecois in the spring budget, ensuring the survival of the minority government.
The CAQ leader says the PQ would first have to show how they would cut taxes, balance the budget by 2014-2015, and launch an economic plan.
"Unfortunately, I know very well the Parti Quebecois. I know very well how close they are with unions. And I would be surprised if they accept our proposals. But, if they do so, I'll be happy," he says.
Legault also blasted the Marois government for "spending like drunken sailors" and stirring up trouble with the charter, leaving Quebec "in a state of hangover with a huge headache."
But, the politician did say the fact that the CAQ and the PQ were able to work together to pass a mining bill yesterday bodes well for future collaboration.
"I would like to see the same with the charter, where we propose a compromise that should be acceptable to Ms. Marois."
Shortly afterward, the Liberals issued a press release stating that the Coalition is "becoming closer and closer to the Parti Quebecois."
