Quebec election: Parties back on campaign trail after death of Queen Elizabeth


Coalition Avenir Québec Leader François Legault is holding a news conference Friday morning in Quebec City, a day after he briefly paused his campaign due to the death of Queen Elizabeth.

Legault is speaking to reporters in the riding of Jean-Lesage, held by Québec solidaire but leaning toward the CAQ, according to the polls.

Québec solidaire spokesman Gabriel Nadeau-Dubois, meanwhile, will be about 125 kilometres south of Legault, in Trois-Rivières, Que., where he is releasing his party’s costed platform.
