The man who was MP for the riding for the Liberal government of Jean Charest from 2003 to 2007 and from 2008 to 2012 took the opportunity to remind the few supporters present of the five major commitments that he will put forward between now and the day of the vote on October 3.
Among these, Mr. Bernard wishes to increase the attractiveness of the region and promote the recruitment and retention of the workforce.
There is work to be done both in the community in this regard and at the government level for facilitation. The first aspect I talked about with people, immigration, is to work a little better with the federal government to be able to shorten the time to get herehe mentions, while emphasizing the importance of improving the supply of housing and child care spaces.
In addition to improving access to health care and fighting the effects of inflation, Daniel Bernard also wants to support the development of Abitibi-Témiscamingue by focusing on revitalizing rural areas.
Given that we are currently having recruitment problems with nurses, among other things, we have to work on that in order to be able to bring people back and restore services to the small communities. This is where Minister Christian Dubé’s decentralization plan to return power and decisions to the local level should help.supports the CAQ candidate.
Finally, Mr. Bernard’s last major commitment relates to protecting water and improving access to nature.
Convince the electorate of Témiscamingue
A citizen of Rouyn-Noranda and city councilor since last November, Daniel Bernard is aware of the challenge facing him to seduce the electorate of Témiscamingue, in a context where three of his opponents are from the place where resided for an extended period.
I had to come and launch my campaign here. My candidacy announcement took place in Rouyn-Noranda. So coming here at the start of the campaign, in Témiscamingue, in Ville-Marie, was a must. I have always had Témiscamingue at heart. In my second term [avec le gouvernement libéral]I was here regularly to help the region, so much so that the people of Rouyn-Noranda thought I was here too oftensays Mr. Bernard.
In Témiscamingue, as in the riding as a whole, Daniel Bernard believes that his main challenge will be to make himself known to the segment of the electorate who was not old enough to vote during his two terms as MP for the riding over ten years ago.
