OTTAWA — The Leader of the Liberal Party of Canada, Justin Trudeau, issued the following statement on the election of Philippe Couillard as Premier-designate of Quebec:
“Today, Quebecers voted for a better economy, instead of a third referendum, by electing Philippe Couillard as their new Premier and giving the Quebec Liberal Party a strong mandate to address the real issues in the province.
“Liberals in Quebec and across the country are focused on jobs, the economy, and growing the middle class. It is clear that Quebecers share this view.
“As I have said since last summer, I had the utmost confidence that Quebec voters would reject the negative, divisive politics of Mme. Marois’ proposed plan. I am proud that my fellow Quebecers have chosen unity and acceptance as we move forward together.
“As a Quebecer, I am thrilled that my province will be represented by as dedicated a leader as Philippe Couillard. I would like to extend my sincere congratulations to his entire team. I look forward to working alongside them to help bring about economic growth and a strong, thriving middle class.”
