After the scuffle Tuesday between the president of the National Assembly, Nathalie Roy, and the solidarity MP Christine Labrie, who accused the State of Quebec of participating in “economic violence” against public sector workers, the words “exploiting women” will be added to the list of unparliamentary remarks.

This information was confirmed to The Canadian Press by the National Assembly. Thursday, on her Facebook page, the solidarity MP wrote this: It will now be forbidden to tell the Salon Bleu that the State exploits its workers. Too bad it's not forbidden to use them instead.

She then launched an appeal to everyone: I need your vocabulary suggestions to talk about what you experience when you are imposed compulsory overtime, when you work unpaid hours, when you are kept in the precariousness, when you are led to exhaustion by increasing your workload, and so on, listed the member for Sherbrooke.

On Tuesday, Christine Labrie provoked strong reactions at the Salon Bleu by asserting that three quarters of the people who work in our public services are women. Why does the CAQ persist in exploiting them?

The President of the Assembly, Nathalie Roy, had to ask him twice to withdraw his unworthy remarks. Ms. Labrie finally complied, grumbling.

Let us clarify that words deemed unparliamentary are not completely prohibited at the Salon bleu. The Chair has complete latitude to interpret and qualify the comments made by [a Member of Parliament] in light of the circumstances. There are no absolute criteria. The presidency's judgment depends on the nature of the remarks and the context in which they were made, indicated the spokesperson for the Assembly, Béatrice Zacharie, by email.

As for the comments made by the member for Sherbrooke […], it is the assertion [according to which] the government exploits the women whose presidency demanded the removal , added Ms. Zacharie.

The National Assembly notably prohibits an elected official from attributing unworthy motives to a colleague, x27;use violent language, make threats and make seditious remarks.
