Jean D’Amour’s appointment to the position of Minister for Transport and the Implementation of the Maritime Strategy is a clear sign of the government’s desire to prioritize the marine sector as a tool for economic development.

With this appointment, the Liberal Party’s vision, as announced in its 2014 election platform, “to increase the economic spinoffs resulting from activities linked to the St. Lawrence River”, has a good chance of materializing.

The electoral campaign ended with a Québec Liberal Party (PLQ) victory. Overall, the Liberals won 70 of the National Assembly’s 125 seats. The Parti québécois (PQ) was defeated, finishing with 30 elected representatives compared to 54 in 2012. The Coalition avenir Québec (CAQ) consolidated its position moving from the previous election’s 19 MNAs to 22 this time around.
