The Member of Parliament for Trois-Rivières in the House of Commons, Louise Charbonneau, will not seek a second term if an election is called in 2021.
“I am deeply grateful for the trust people have placed in me. Until the end of my mandate, I will continue with my team to support citizens, businesses, community organizations, the business community and healthcare staff, ”she wrote in a message posted on her Member of Parliament Facebook page.
“I am not forgetting our elders! I continue to fight for financial support for people 65 and over in order to obtain a sustainable increase in the old age pension. Despite the confinement, my entire team and I are teleworking until February 8, Monday to Friday, from 9 a.m. to 5 a.m. ”
Louise Charbonneau was elected under the banner of the Bloc Québécois in the last federal election in which she was notably opposed to outgoing MP Robert Aubin (NDP), Valérie Renaud-Martin (Liberal Party) and Yves Lévesque (Conservative Party).
