The QLP requires a great mobilization of the business community and the government Legault to nominate Quebec to host the summit of 2020, the COP26.
It is the turn of Quebec to receive the great annual summit of the united Nations on climate change, supports the official opposition liberal party.
The liberals are claiming, in effect, a great mobilization of the business community and the government Legault to nominate Quebec to host the summit of 2020, the COP26, has learned The canadian Press.
The liberal Party (QLP) makes this request by the time the summit of this year, the COP24, ends in Katowice, Poland.
The liberal mna for Nelligan, Monsef Derraji, which has been sent by his party to Katowice, discussed the possible candidacy with the delegation of québec was composed of entrepreneurs and researchers.
In an interview that aired Sunday, Mr. Derraji argued that 2020 is the appropriate time for Quebec, since South America will host the COP in 2019 and, according to the usual order, this should come back to North America afterwards.
According to him, the prime minister François Legault has missed an important appointment this year by not giving in to the UN summit, unlike its predecessors, such as Jean Charest and Philippe Couillard, so it must now return.
