Liberal leader Dominic Angled has come out in support of his health spokeswoman Mary Montpet, publicly reprimanding his colleague Gaton Barrett on Twitter for his stance on the issue of family medicine.
After a special caucus on Wednesday to restore order to her forces, the official opposition leader appeared before the media on Thursday.
“Each representative should comment on issues that fall within their purview. Mary Montpet, spokeswoman for Health, ”she said in a thinly veiled critique of Gaton Barrett.
She said she expects “sinless solidarity” from her Caucasus members and condemned the former health minister for “stumbling”.
Mary Montepett, the current health spokeswoman for the Liberal Party of Quebec, criticized Gaton Barrett on Twitter on Wednesday for writing a tweet that was “unproductive as the authoritarian attitude of Prime Minister Legalt” in the Family Physicians file.
Public criticism is usually rare among members of the same party.
Former health minister Gaton Barrett attacked the president of the Federation of General Practitioners on Tuesday on the social network Twitter.
“I listened to all of Dr. Godin’s interviews.” He uttered the same words when he pledged to register 85% of the population in 2015 and move its members to Adopted Access. […] Do not believe! ”He wrote.
At the time, Gaton Barrett passed Bill 20, which could impose financial penalties of up to 30% on physicians’ salaries if they did not take enough patients.
“Abuse of power”
For Dominic Anglade, however, Law 20 was “not on the table now” because Health Minister Christian Dubey wanted to introduce a bill that would provide new penalties for doctors who do not pay enough for patients.
“We have to consider everything, all the options have to be on the table, but the bulldozing way of doing things is not the way of doing things,” she said.
Liberal leader Legalt also spoke of the government’s “abuse of power” because it received a list of doctors, including the number of patients everyone looked after using a health emergency.
“If we have a reason, there is only one reason today to say that we should not have decrees that are repeated week after week, here is one,” Dominic Angled said.
