The federal Minister of Employment and Official Languages, Randy Boissonnault, accuses provincial premiers of obstructing “the ambitions” of Canada.

We We have a lot of ambitions as a country and yet we have provincial prime ministers who are still in the past and do not want to see us build, who do not want to see us grow, he said during his speech. appearance on the CBC radio show, The House (New window).

We can do great things with this country if our provincial partners would work with us.

A quote from Randy Boissonnault, federal Minister of Employment and of Official Languages

The comments of the federal minister, elected from the riding of Edmonton Centre, are mainly aimed at the Premier of Alberta, Danielle Smith, the Premier of Saskatchewan, Scott Moe and that of New Brunswick, Blaine Higgs. The three mentioned that they would defy federal environmental regulations or consider doing so.

Danielle Smith invoked the sovereignty law last Monday , because she believes that the proposed electricity regulation will endanger the reliability of the electricity network. According to the federal minister, this law is just a distraction.

It's a toothless tiger. Some will say that it is a questionable piece of legislation. I think this is a great distraction.

A quote from Randy Boissonnault, Federal Minister of Employment and Official Languages

On November 30, the Government of Saskatchewan announced that as of January 1, 2024 SaskPower, the Crown corporation responsible for the electricity network, will stop collecting the carbon tax on electric heating.

However, Randy Boissonnault's criticisms are not limited to the behavior of these prime ministers in the face of federal environmental ambitions. He mentions during the interview the new rules in Saskatchewan and New Brunswick which require that the change of name or pronoun, at school, of a student under the age of 16 must be done with parental consent.

Provincial premiers attack minorities or harass them, instead of working with them on general policy issues, he deplores.

This is not how you build a country. As a federal government, we have great ambition. We want to move things forward.

A quote from Randy Boissonnault, federal Minister of Employment and Official Languages

However, he maintains that 'he maintains good relations with all the prime ministers, but nevertheless points out that any attempt to evade federal laws and regulations will end up in court.

This is a country where the rule of law reigns and if a provincial government does not want to respect the law, we have courts to resolve that problem, he said.
