The parliamentary leader of the government, Simon Jolin-Barrette (Archive photo)
Fortunately, I did not hear these comments, defended the vice-president of the Assembly, Chantal Soucy, who was then moderating the work. But I remind you that it is unacceptable to make these comments in this House.
Even on the other side of the benches of government, the deputy parliamentary leader of the official opposition, Michelle Setlakwe, came to endorse Mr. Jolin-Barrette's protests.
The remarks have been very clear, unacceptable, unworthy, they must never be uttered between colleagues, this is what we teach our children, and especially not within the confines of the Salon bleu. This must be denounced.
