Frederick Bourgeoy, a former managing director and head of capital markets at Scotiabank, will run for Marguerite Bourgeoy’s vote in the October general elections. The 57-year-old man is an activist within the formation and is well known to the Liberal Party for wearing the colors of the Liberal Party of Canada held in Terrebonne in the 2019 elections.

He finished second only to Bloc Québécois Michel Budrias with 29.26% of the votes. “It was a human experience,” launches a person who left Scotiabank in 2019. He now wants to leap into “local” level local politics with Dominique Anglade’s army. He tries his luck on a safe vehicle that has belonged to the liberal faction since it was founded in 1966.

Elaine David won the seat in 2018 with an overwhelming majority (53.4% ​​of the votes) against Allied Avenir Quebec’s opponents. The members of Marguerite-Bourgeoys were represented by former Minister Robert Poëti from 2012 to 2018.

Mr. Vochemin will be part of the “economic team” announced by the liberal leader in the fall. Candidates say he has worked in the “Canada Business Community” for 30 years. For 10 years as an executive at Scotiabank, he was responsible for business development with commercial clients, governments and financial institutions.

Frederick Boschmann claims that he was tempted by the “ECO Project” launched by Dominique Anglade last November, especially with the aim of nationalizing green hydrogen. “I have gain [une montée en puissance] Around green hydrogen […] It seems that 2030 and 2035 are periods when players are quite determined. [sur le marché]So we now have a window, we are solid in it, “he explains.

“We are spoiled in Quebec, we have hydropower, we have water, and we can put in place the infrastructure to develop this project,” he believes.

He says he’s in politics out of “belief” while the party struggles to move the needle in a poll six months before the election. Liberals have been particularly criticized last month for the emergence of two political groups defending the English-speaking community.

Departure and arrival

Dominique Anglade confirmed on Wednesday the candidacy of Mayor Saint-Flavyan and Normand Côté, the head of the MRC de Lotbinière in Rotovinière Frontenac. Liberal leaders, a sign that elections are approaching us, will indulge in the announcement of some candidates over the next few days.

Several members have also recently been vacated by veterans, including Marguerite Bourgeoy, who confirmed that Elaine David did not seek a new mission and gave way to new blood.

Liberal MNAs Monique Sauvé, Nicole Ménard, Jean Roussel and Christine St-Pierre have announced in the last few weeks that they will not seek reelection in October. These departures will be added to the departures of Francine Charbonault, Gaetham Barrett and Resetterio, who announced their decisions before last year’s vacation. Kathleen Weil, Pierre Arkand and Carlos Reitao have always left suspense hanging in their political future.
