Does Trudeau think what happens in Ontario stays in Ontario?
Newsflash: everyone in Quebec heard you criticizing the notwithstanding clause, citing the need to protect the rights and freedoms of education workers in Ontario.
But it has been used repeatedly in Quebec without a whisper from Ottawa.
Why should the rights of Quebecers stop at the Ontario border?
And even worse, using the clause to force Ontario teachers back into the classroom is a temporary measure. Forcing people in Quebec out of their jobs, or any position of authority for that matter, because of their religious beliefs, has a far greater impact.
It took 48 hours for Trudeau to denounce the use of the notwithstanding clause in Ontario.
Meanwhile, a teacher in Chelsea, Qc was relieved of her position over a year ago.
Is Trudeau prime minister of all of Canada, or just some Canadians?
