Mario Fortier has a Bachelor’s degree in psychology from Université Laval and has lived in Lévis for 30 years. He has worked as an estimator in the construction industry for 21 years, but is above all a well-known figure in the region’s municipal politics.
First elected as a councillor in 2009, Mr. Fortier also served as President of the Société de transport de Lévis from 2017 to 2021. A member of the executive committee in Mayor Gilles Lehouillier’s team from 2013 to 2017, he also sat on the Sustainable Mobility Committee, the Traffic and Public Safety Committee, the Cultural Advisory Commission, the Quebec Metropolitan Community, and the Chute-de-la-Chaudière Inter-Municipal Waste Management Board.
So, after 17 years of political involvement at the municipal level, including 12 as an elected official in the City of Lévis, he is now entering provincial politics under the banner of the Conservatives:
“What I want is a less interventionist state, with citizens who are less taxed, less imposed upon, and who have more freedom and latitude in deciding what is best for them. It is time for a government that respects some limits on the citizens’ ability to just pay and pay, a government that tightens its belt instead of always dipping further into the wallets of Quebecers to fill its coffers. It is also urgent that we improve services such as access to clinics and family doctors, and that we allow the private sector to contribute to the health care system. Cosmetic reforms do not work! Only the Conservative Party has a new vision and new solutions to offer Quebecers.”
