Émilie Paiement was born in Quebec and grew up in Mont-Laurier with her 7 brothers and sisters. She studied in the region and she is currently at the Cégep de Saint Jérôme in paralegal technology. She joins the fight of the Green Party of Quebec because she believes that the environmental issues have been taken for granted and that it is time to put forward the importance of Quebec's biodiversity. A committed young woman, Émilie supports several charitable organizations and is also involved in Leucan's mission to support young children and their families suffering from cancer.
Dedicated to helping others, she is involved in politics because she sees the sphere as essential to exercise her ideas, as well as those of her generation. For her, it is the best way to link the environment to the growing demands of our society. In fact, she hopes to focus on the protection of Quebec's biodiversity, especially the fauna and flora. Mr. Paiement also pushes for free public transport in Prévost. Combined with the electrification and expansion of the networks, it would bring alternatives to private vehicles in an isolated and underserved area.
The candidate would like to put forward a better educational system for the benefit of students but also teachers, to fetch the interest and curiosity of the people. She proposes a drastic change of the health system which, according to her, is too dysfunctional. Therefore, she wants to ensure free health services and better access to prescription drugs for all citizens. Finally, Émilie hopes to provide better funding for long-term care homes as well as better services for people with disabilities.
In this regard, for her, every vote in favor of the Green Party of Quebec proves that the ideas defended by the party resonate with the population. She would like to ensure that our province and its citizens are healthy, educated, prosperous and supportive, and would be honored to have your support in the upcoming 2018 elections in Prevost. Every vote counts!
