Following a recent Quebec cabinet reshuffle that took place at the end of January, Pontiac MNA Andre Fortin was appointed Parliamentary Assistant to the Minister of Finance, Carlos Leitao.
Fortin, who was elected in 2014, has been a
member of the Financial Commission since last fall. “I was honoured to accept the position, and I thank Premier Phillippe Couillard for trusting me with these new responsibilities,” said Fortin, noting he will
collaborate with Leitao to achieve “even greater”
economic success for the province.
According to Fortin, he will work on the upcoming budget with Minister Leitao, and since the
budgets are the base for all government action, he will have significant input into key decisions. “I’ll use the opportunity to make sure Pontiac, Outaouais, and rural Quebec priorities are heard,” he added.
