Vincent Marissal eyeing the electoral district of Rosemont, which is currently occupied by the leader of the Parti québécois.

    “If he were to decide to present themselves in a county pq, it would tell us something about the real objective of Québec solidaire, commented Jean-François Lisée in the morning. Me, in Rosemont, I am very confident of the win, I think, I have woven a very, very good link with the people, with organizations, with local groups.”
