Gabriel Desjardins

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Gabriel Desjardins (Temiscamingue):

Madam Speaker, I rise in the House today out of solidarity with my constituents in Rouyn-Noranda and McWatters. Today a general strike was called in Rouyn-Noranda for a few hours as a public protest against a decision by the Quebec government to move the headquarters of the Service de conservation du Nord-Ouest.
The Premier of Quebec must listen to the voice of the people. They say this decision is wrong and a waste of money. I want to ask the Quebec Premier to meet a regional delegation for a frank discussion of this matter and then make the right decision, which is to keep the Service de conservation du Nord-Ouest in McWatters.
