  The day after a momentous election victory in which he re-drew Quebec's political map, Premier-designate Francois Legault sought on Tuesday to reassure Quebecers and other Canadians uncertain what to expect from his government.
    He said he wants to build a "strong Quebec inside Canada" and to reduce Quebec's dependence on equalization payments from the federal government.
   The Coalition leader told reporters he has no intention of softening his controversial campaign promises to reduce annual immigration to Quebec and institute language and values tests for recent arrivals. And he said he would invoke the notwithstanding clause if necessary to override the Charter of Rights and Freedoms and ensure public officials in positions of authority wear no religious symbols.
