Today I was in Saint Jean sur Richelieu with our candidate Véronique Langlois to support the citizens who oppose the cancellation of the municipal referendums.

Municipal referendums, which are triggered when a certain number of signatures are obtained, allow citizens to take democratic means to stop zoning changes, the destruction of green spaces and other projects that are harmful to the environment.

A bill passed by the Couillard government allows municipalities to take away citizens’ right to referendums.

The Green Party of Quebec will continue to stand up against any attack on democracy and our democratic institutions.

Alex Tyrrell
Leader of the Green Party of Quebec
