The government confirmed their departure on Friday morning, information first released by The Journal of Quebec. It has long been assumed that M.me McCann (69) and Mr.me Blais (71) were not going to seek another mandate – the opposite would have been a huge surprise – but they had not made the official announcement yet. Announcements were scheduled later.

The two main interested parties were unaware that their departure was going to be revealed now, according to our information.

This is one of the most beautiful news, and which pushes me to devote myself to my family. I will provide an update to the citizens of Sanguinet soon. »

The spokesperson for M.me Blais, Jean-Charles Duchetto, has confirmed that she will leave politics at the end of her mandate.
