Sophie is a lover of nature and animals. She is against clear cutting without reforestation and against shale gas. She supports the right to clean air, clean water, and foods that are not full of chemicals. It promotes environmental rights and wants to enforce them.
She wants women to become more involved in politics because they have a strong will and determination. It is for the well-being of seniors and children. Public health and social services should also be a priority. With that, she hopes she can count on your support in the upcoming 2018 provincial election in Edmundston, Madawaska Center. She would like to work with you and for you.
