In last October’s Provincial Election, Sherbrooke MNA Christine Labrie was the only person to be elected in the Eastern Townships who was a member of a party other than the majority Coalition Avenir Quebec (CAQ). Four months out from election night, the Quebec Solidaire (QS) Critic for Education, Sports and Recreation, Families, and the Status of Women said that she is settling into her new role well.
“We are starting to be really efficient,” Labrie said sharing that even though she is the only representative of her party this side of Montreal, she does not feel isolated. While stating that she intends to work in open cooperation with her CAQ neighbours on matters of importance to the region, the MNA said that being the only opposition voice in the Townships has meant that she has become a person sought out by groups who don’t feel they are heard by the government.
