QUEBEC — The Quebec legislature resumes sitting today after its summer break.
Premier Philippe Couillard’s governing Liberals and the Opposition Parti Quebecois have promised less political partisanship during the daily question period.
The session will play out against the backdrop of what could well be protracted contract negotiations between the government and public-sector unions.
The Liberals have 70 members in the 125-seat national assembly, compared with 29 for the PQ and 20 for the Coalition for Quebec’s Future.
Quebec solidaire has three seats, there is one Independent and two ridings are vacant.
Quebecers are expected to next go to the polls in the fall of 2018.
