    “What I want to see is what are these new data that contribute to a project that we believed dead and buried is now interesting. I want us to be explains it,” claimed the mp caquiste Eric Cairo, in an interview with our parliamentary Bureau.

    It must be said that the CAQ has never been too excited by the tramway project. At the last general election, the liberal Party had finally agreed to the “no way, streetcar” launched by the spokesperson of the regional of the CAQ of the time, Gérard Deltell.

    There is no more later than last year, the predecessor of Sébastien Proulx, François Blais, had had to withdraw after re-opening the door to the tram in an interview with The Newspaper.

    If the liberals have once again changed their tune, this is not the case of the troops of François Legault. “There is no more warm to the idea (of the tram) it was, it has not changed,” said Mr. Cairo.

    The spokesperson of the regional QAC ensures that his party had always been favourable to the improvement of the transit network in Quebec. “But I don’t understand this new craze post-election for the tram,” he said.


    Mr. Cairo hopes that the next electoral appointment, in 2018, will be for the citizens an opportunity to vote on a draft transit structuring clear and defined.

    It appears to him also “essential” that the future transit network structure linking Lévis and Quebec, this would be easily the realization of a third link inter-rives, he argues.

    “The first priority for us, it is the 3rd link, that is clear. However, it is well aware that the 3rd link is not the only solution to be put in place to decongest the City of Quebec, ” said Mr. Cairo.
