“If I become leader of the Parti Québecois, I will apply every single recommendation of the Charbonneau commission,” Plamondon said.

Rooting out corruption and collusion are common values that he thinks will attract anglophone voters should he win the leadership race.

“I don’t think the core values are different parts of Quebec,” Plamondon siad. “I think everybody in Quebec is fed up with corruption, and my proposition, if I am the leader of  the Parti Quebecois, is to provide Quebecers with an honest, competent government in 2018.”
