Mr. Lisée, to him, is not surprised by the declaration of PKP. “It sends us signals for a long time,” he said.
“I tell him that if he wants to come in our team, it would be a great addition to the PQ in October that came from, but I learned yesterday [for the first time] that her daughter Romy is agree with me and campaigned for it to be present. That is what he will do? It will be up to him to decide,” said Jean-François Lisée.

Mr. Gravel asked the leader of the Parti Québécois if he would have preferred that the business man speaks to him about it first in private. “I have no problem with what Pierre-Karl or other people, when asked, say that actually it is a conversation that they have,” replied Mr. Lisée.
“A former chef who wants to return will not be satisfied with a minor role, it seems to me that I méfierais to your place, right?” subsequently asked Alain Gravel.
“This is not how I see the policy. I want to have a very strong team with people who have the stature and experience, and why not of the ambition,” said Mr. Lisée.
“Now, the ball is in his camp. For the moment, he said no, but I have confidence in Romy and I would like it that [his son] Thomas with it”, he added Jean-François Lisée.
