IG News Updates,

MONTREAL — As the Quebec election campaign enters its final weekend, party mainstays are spreading across the province.

Coalition Avenir Quebec leader François Legault is to have breakfast with supporters in Chibougamau and then travel to Mont-Laurier, about 600 kilometers south of the province of Laurentian, where he will meet supporters in the evening.

Liberal leader Dominic Anglade will campaign in Three Riding where his party is voting in third place.

Today, she is headed to the Gaspé peninsula and will also visit le-de-la-Madeleine – which her party lost by 15 votes in 2018. A visit to Cuuzjuaq, the largest village in Quebec’s northern Nunavik region, is scheduled for tomorrow.

Québec Solidaire spokesman Gabriel Nadeau-Dubois will be in Montreal and plans to campaign in the three rides won by the Liberals in the last election, including Anglade’s ride of Saint-Henri-St-Anne.

Parti Québecois leader Paul Saint-Pierre Plamondon is to make several stops from Quebec City to Longueil today, while on Sunday his campaign will fly to several parts of the province.

Conservative leader Eric Duhaime plans to start by going door-to-door in Quebec City before heading to a rally in the largely English-speaking Montreal suburb of Pointe-Claire.
