With a margin of 327 to 1 vote, members of the Liberal, Conservative, Black, NDP and Green backed a resolution submitted by Black Cubacois on Tuesday, turning to Justin Trudeau’s Liberal government to hold on to the ballot during a health crisis.

When some of the sanctions imposed due to COVID-19 began to be lifted, Black Motion confirmed that it was “irresponsible” to hold elections during the epidemic.

Only independent MP Derek Sloan, who was ousted from the Conservative Party Caucus by leader Erin O’Toole earlier this year, voted against the move.

“We need democratically to be able to express ourselves on such a crucial issue and reach a common solution by the end of the parliamentary session,” said Yves-Franకోois Blanchett, leader of the Black Cubacois.

It is clear that the Quebecs do not want short-term elections and that the government must act accordingly.

Liberals scratch the block

Before the vote, Justin Trudeau’s Liberals mocked the Black Cubacois parliamentary policy.

The leader of the House of Representatives, Minister Pablo Rodriguez, and the leader of the Bloc, Yves-Franకోois Blanchett, said a few months ago that the hours of the Liberal minority government would be counted. He is also set to introduce a fraudulent resolution if Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, his Chief of Staff, Katie Telford and Finance Minister Bill Mornie do not step down in the wake of the WE Charity affair.

“In the autumn, the Black Cubacos wanted to go to the polls on the speech from the throne. We really need elections. And the leader of the Black Cubacos said, and I quote: If Parliament has the courage, the days of the government in place are numbered. If some of us have the courage, the hours of this government will be counted. . ”He went so far as to intimidate those who did not want the election, so who is telling the truth? Black since last fall or black today?», Mr. Rodriguez started.

In recent months, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has said he does not want a general election in the spring because his minority government could pass bills that he deems important. He pointed out that he had no choice but to appeal the verdict of the electorate if Parliament did not function.

In the liberal ranks, holding elections in the spring is now ruled out. But we are actively preparing for elections in late September or early October.
