A tour of Quebec’s regions
At the end of July, I began a summer tour of Quebec’s regions to meet entrepreneurs and local officials and discuss with them tourism development and various regional issues in which the federal government is involved. As I do in all such meetings, I explained our government’s efforts to foster a better business environment by reducing red tape and the tax burden for businesses.
Here I am with business people in Sept-Îles and Gaspé.
The village of Mont St-Pierre in the Gaspé peninsula held this year the 35th edition of its Fête du vol libre (a hand-gliding festival). I met the mayor, Jean-Sébastien Cloutier (centre) and the prefect of Haute-Gaspésie, Allen Cormier.
In Matane, I kicked off the 20th edition of the Festival country with its director, André Rouleau.
Still in Matane, I stopped by one of the largest soft ball tournaments in Quebec, the Festi-Balle Coors Light, organised by Sylvain Caron.
