    In a rare show of political unity, Quebec Premier Philippe Couillard was joined by his political opponents as he attended a protest in support of workers at the Davie shipyard near Quebec City on Sunday.

    The protest was organized by union leaders and the shipyard’s owner to call on the federal government to give more public contracts to the shipyard in Levis, Que.

    In his speech, Couillard said most federal ship contracts have been given to British Columbia and the Maritimes, leaving little for Quebec.

    “We’re asking for equality. We are asking for justice. We’re not asking for charity, we’re just asking for our fair share,” he said.
