In a surprising move Friday morning, Premier François Legault took to Facebook to discuss Bill 61, throwing barbs at his opponents' reactions to the controversial legislation. He put the onus on Quebec's opposition parties to support the bill that he says will "help us revive the Quebec economy and build schools, hospitals, and public transit projects more quickly and repair our roads." He called on Quebecers to support him.\n"[The opposition] also wants to speed up the renovation of CHSLDs and seniors' homes. We owe that to the people who built Quebec," Legault stressed .\n"These projects are expected in all regions of Quebec. We need them."\nSome of the main concerns with Bill 61 involve certain articles regarding environmental protections that the Québec Solidaire has called "problematic."\nDominique Anglade, the Parti libéral du Québec (PLQ) leader, described the bill as a "bulldozer [...] a bill that bulldozes the way things are done and that has not been prepared accordingly."\nThe CAQ has proposed some amendments to Bill 61 in light of the controversy.\nThe premier mentioned that he listened to the concerns regarding "environmental protection, section 50 on the integrity of public contracts and the period of time during which a state of health emergency applies."\nBonjour tout le monde,\n \nJe vous écris tôt ce matin parce que j’ai besoin de votre appui.
