Action Laval : About the party

Action Laval – Équipe Jean-Claude Gobé is a municipal party of Laval founded in April 2013, in view of the November municipal elections of that same year. The newly formed party won the second highest votes during the elections and became the Official Opposition at Ville de Laval.

This victory was only the beginning according to its founder Jean-Claude Gobé, former provincial MNA for the Parti Libéral du Québec in Lafontaine from 1985 to 2003. On the eve of the elections, he efficiently recruited a team of volunteers and candidates when facing organized contenders, which demonstrates the credibility and seriousness of his choice.

The party worked actively for all citizens of Laval as its Official Opposition. Some of the major subjects of the campaign is the tax increase, the overspending of the ruling party, Mouvement Lavallois, the completion of highway 19 and the extensive bureaucracy at the city. The official Opposition not being part of the political culture of Laval, Jean-Claude Gobé and his team were able to create such an essential role.

Some might say the passage of a political party to the official Opposition may be compared to the crossing of the desert, however for Jean-Claude Gobé, it had to do with getting to know the city, its issues and above all, its citizens. Action Laval is an open-minded party ; its members, volunteers and supporters come from different backgrounds, origins, and all ages. The party prioritizes youth and action. Since today’s youth will be the leaders of tomorrow, it is crucial for this party to bring them forward and support them in realizing their dreams.

Since 2013, this party, as Laval’s Official Opposition has accomplished much more than any other political group given the same time frame. Spearheaded by Jean-Claude Gobé, Action Laval will be present at the 2017 elections and for many more years to come!
