Couillard refuses to shorten his holidays
Couillard refuses Philippe Couillard was in the Gaspé on Sunday when the other premiers set out to meet with the Aboriginal leaders in Edmonton the next day.
A great salmon fan, the Prime Minister stopped at the Jojo restaurant in Amqui on Sunday at noon. “I think he was going fishing, probably at Causapscal,” said a waitress in the small Gaspesian restaurant, Jany-May Charest.
