Head of Government
Mr of Quebec
As Premier, as a government, we have a duty to preserve what our predecessors have left us. We have a duty to those who come after us to safeguard nature and halt the loss of biodiversity. Morally, we cannot leave it to the next generations to correct our mistakes. Together, at COP15, we created the "Montreal moment" that the planet needs. Quebec was there.
Parc national de la Jacques-Cartier is host to one of the most beautiful glacial valleys in Québec, the spectacular Vallée de la Jacques-Cartier. The Jacques Cartier River, calm in some places and turbulent in others, has sliced a 550-metre-deep channel into the plateau. A coniferous forest dominates the high plateaus, and deciduous trees people the deep valleys. Here, nature is both inspiring and serene.
