Quebec Liberal leadership candidates in their own words
The three candidates for the Quebec Liberal Party leadership share their agendas
Posted: Mar 15, 2013
Seen by many as a the front-runner in the three-way race for Quebec Liberal leadership, Couillard came out of political retirement to set his sights on the party's top job.
Known by some as the "architect" of the Liberal's ill-fated plan to raise tuition in the province, Bachand's record as finance minister during difficult economic times has nonetheless put him on solid footing as a leadership contender.
When he announced his leadership run in October, Moreau was considered the least known of the three MNAs vying for the position. He has identified transparency as a key issue for the party moving forward and has centred his leadership campaign on the theme “Proud to be Liberal,” and bringing people back to the party fold.
