Mr. Speaker, the Parti Québécois has elected a new leader, and what a leader: he is none other than Jean-François Lisée.
As a former right-hand man to some of our most illustrious heads of state, he is the perfect person for the job. He is an intellectual, a man of words, a man of conviction. With Jean-François Lisée at the helm, the sovereignist movement will make major headway.
He will not be working alone. Alongside him, Martine Ouellet, Alexandre Cloutier, Paul Saint-Pierre Plamondon, Véronique Hivon, and all of the people on the ground will be working to make the sovereignist vision of Quebec's largest activist organization a reality.
With Jean-François Lisée and the Bloc Québécois by his side, we will build the winning momentum Quebec needs. As of today, we are all on the same path, the right path, the path to victory.
