Six candidates for Canada’s Conservative Party leadership were stabbed for the first time in Molire language on Wednesday, when the French were not always a deterrent in their attacks.
As the six candidates took to the stage in Laval, the names of the two leaders in the race, Pierre Poyleivre and Jean Charrest, were heard and the debate began.
Intended for the first theme, although immigration was opposed to random entries, it was not possible to identify candidates who were too open to the idea.
The public safety issue has also been resolved, a very current issue in Montreal, with shootings on the rise over the past few weeks.
“Security is one of the most important issues for the Prime Minister,” Jean-Charest argued, adding that crime in Montreal was now commonplace in the Quebec metropolis.
Mr. Poilievre’s favorite theme, his opponents do not hesitate to attack inflation and his desire to remove the Governor of the Bank of Canada, but also his focus on cryptocurrency.
“He’s in the potatoes,” Leslin Louis evoked cheer in the room, a few minutes later Mr Charrest backed up the idea.
Approved by Quebec on Tuesday, Bill 96 on the French language was not forgotten in the debate, which allowed Patrick Brown and Scott Aichison to speak out against this version of Bill 101.
Without taking a clear stance on the issue, Mr. Charrest took the opportunity to attack Pierre Polyvre directly on the subject of official languages.
“Bilingualism, Mr. Poyleivre, says in French Canada as well as in English Canada,” he said.
About the Trudeau government going to the Supreme Court to challenge Bill 21 and possibly Bill 96, the former Quebec Prime Minister assured that these were “jurisdictions falling within the purview of the National Assembly”.
However, he left the door open for thought. “If the case goes to the Supreme Court, the Government of Canada will not consider its own country.”
“I will not reverse the federal decision to challenge the law,” said Pierre Poelyvre, who changed his position after opposing a legal challenge in the past.
As in previous discussions, the duel between Pierre Poyleivre and Jean Charest was considered unique, with both counting the votes of Quebec members in the party to win.
Keep in mind that the last moment to recruit eligible members to vote in the September 10 election is the same last debate before the June 3 lucky date.
