No liberal elected in Quebec: a first since 1948 | Elections Quebec 2022

In a more distant past we have to go back to Adelard Godbout’s Liberals in 1948 to trace such money laundering. Maurice Duplessis and the Union Nationale then unleashed a veritable tidal wave in the region.

Riding Jean-Talon was the last Liberal bastion in Quebec, while Sébastien Proulx was the only Liberal to have been elected in 2018. The following year he announced that he was retiring from politics and Joëlle Boutin from the group CAQ won the by-election.

This time the PLQ candidate in Jean-Talon, Julie White, did not get past 4th place and garnered less than 14% of the vote.

I did the best campaign I could do under the circumstances, I was in the field and had a 100% positive campaign.the losing candidate tells Radio Canada.

Of course, when analysts say the Liberal Party has been defeated for months, people have been saying for months that we will not be the official opposition, that is not the case todayshe is happy despite the defeat.

In this campaign we went with the wind in our faces. »

A quote from Julie White, Liberal candidate, defeated in Jean-Talon

Dominika [Anglade] ran a great campaign. I think people noticed her especially in the second debateShe adds.

According to Julie White, liberals need to step up their game.

There is no valid or invalid reason for losing, it is the only result. We will have debriefings to have in the coming weeks and thoughts.

Reconnect with Quebec

As for the lack of a Liberal deputy in the Capitale-Nationale and in the Chaudière-Appalaches, Julie White respects the voters’ choice and expects the members of her party to find solutions.

That’s not the scenario we wanted […] we must find solutions to reconnect with the electorate of the Capitale-Nationale. The result in Quebec is not similar outside of Quebec. There are regions where we did significantly better. I think we’re going to have to look at all of that over the next few weeks, over the next few months.
