    CHAMBLY – The leader of the Parti québécois (PQ), Jean-François Lisée, was optimistic for the coming months at a meeting inauguration held in Chambly on Sunday afternoon.

    According to him, the appointment of Véronique Hivon as vice-head of the PQ, the last week, and the launch of an advertising campaign have had a positive effect. “It is not only on the ice, it is in the territory of the adversary and account for goals”, has launched Jean-François Lisée in front of activists gathered at Chambly.

    “People who said that it was likely and probable that [one goes up in public opinion], to share with us, there was not much of it. In two or three weeks only, it will start to go up,” said Mr. Lisée. The PQ was recently in third place, with 20 % of voting intentions, according to a survey Light–Duty, conducted from 22 to 24 January.

    Mr. Lisée made the remarks during a speech presented on the occasion of the investiture of Christian Picard, who will represent the PQ in the riding of Chambly in the general election next fall. The candidate, who is currently working as director of cabinet for the mayor of Lachine, Maja Vodanojic, has previously served as director of cabinet in the ministry of sustainable Development, Environment, Wildlife and Parks under the government of Pauline Marois.
