Joël-Denis Bellavance June 20, 2012
(OTTAWA) Twenty-four hours after adding its voice to that of the Charest government in denouncing United Nations critics with regard to the special law (78), the Harper government took grande measures to defend Quebec’s right to adopt the controversial law.
Industry Minister Christian Paradis made a motion to recognize the National Assembly’s right to adopt this law, adopted at lightning speed in hopes of ending the student conflict.
Mr. Paradis’ original proposal reads: “This House recognizes the right of the Quebec National Assembly, duly elected, to pass laws such as Law 78, within its jurisdiction.”
Conservative strategy was to force the New Democratic Party (NDP) to become muddled in the student conflict. This file is seen as a thorny issue for the party of Thomas Mulcair, as several of its MPs and activists come from the student community and some have publicly expressed their sympathy for the “red squares.”
