The parliamentary leader of Québec solidaire (QS), Alexandre Leduc, told his government counterpart, Simon Jolin-Barrette, on Wednesday to “go fuck himself” in the middle of the Salon bleu.

Mr. Leduc launched fuck you Simon off microphone, which was corroborated by both the deputy leader of the opposition, Michelle Setlakwe, and the CAQ MP Sylvie D'Amours.

I made unacceptable comments towards Simon Jolin-Barrette. My words went beyond my thoughts and I sincerely apologize. He is a colleague that I appreciate and I will manage my emotions better in the future. My apologies also to the president.

A quote from Alexandre Leduc, on the social network questions, at the stage of information on parliamentary work, and tension was then rising.

Mr. Leduc returned to comments made by his colleague Christine Labrie last week, deemed unparliamentary by President Nathalie Roy, to ask for clarification.

Mr. Jolin-Barrette was contesting his opponent's intervention when, suddenly, Mr. Leduc lost his temper.

I don't x27;do not accept to be insulted by Québec solidaire on the floor of the National Assembly when I exercise my functions as leader of the government, to be told: "fuck youSimon!" Everyone understood here. […] These are radical, disrespectful remarks. […] In French, it means: "fuck you, Simon!''

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.
