Philippe Couillard says Quebec would survive independence, but the financial price would be huge.
He made the remark Saturday, day 18 of the election campaign, dring a visit in the riding of Roberval, where he's running.
Acccording to the Liberal leader, an independent Quebec would lose 16-billion dollars a year, including 9-billion in equalization payments.
Parti Quebecois leader Pauline Marois says Quebec Solidaire's Francoise David should put an end to her attacks on the PQ.
Marois said David's remarks could help the Liberals win the election on April 7th.
Marois has suggested Quebec Solidaire put aside its differences with the PQ and join Marois' team.
Marois made the comment while campaigning on the lower St Lawrence.
CAQ leader Francois Legault says he's the only the party leader who can properly manage the province.
Campaigning in the Quebec City area, Legault said Marois's not properly qualified because her background is in social work and Couillard is a doctor.
Legault, who co-founded Air Transat, says the other leaders don't have a passion for the economy and management.
