Queen's University expert looks to the future of Quebec politics

2014-04-08

Queen’s University expert André Juneau is available to discuss last night’s election of a majority Liberal government in Quebec.

The Quebec Liberals won 70 ridings, 21 more than the last election in 2012. The Parti Québécois was down 24 ridings since 2012. Premier-elect Philippe Couillard gave his victory speech in English and French, saying he was “the premier of all Quebecers.”

“It's too soon to tell, but if Mr. Couillard handles federal-provincial relations as well as he campaigned then the future of Quebec politics will be interesting, that’s for sure,” says Mr. Juneau.

Mr. Juneau (who speaks French and English) is a Fellow of the Institute of Intergovernmental Relations at Queen’s University (a centre for research on all aspects of federalism and intergovernmental relations).

Please note that Mr. Juneau is not based in Kingston.
