“The summer has been kind to
Premier Legault,” said Dr. Lorne Bozinoff, President of Forum Research. “He
continues to govern from a position of strength and is likely bullish about his
agenda for the fall session. If an election were held today, it looks Legault
would actually improve his hold on the National Assembly.”
