Singh uses Sherbrooke visit to ­announce plan for ­Quebec

By Gordon Lambie

NDP party leader Jagmeet Singh made a campaign stop in Sherbrooke on Sunday to announce his party’s plan for the province of Quebec. Standing among a crowd of supporters at the Le President Hotel, Singh made it clear that he believes his party offers the best option when it comes to standing up for Quebec culture and identity.
“We must stop the condescending approach with Quebec taken by previous federal governments,” the NDP Leader said. “One of the goals of our plan is to give Quebec all the tools it needs to move forward, to achieve its full potential.” Alexandre Boulerice, the NPD MP for Rosemont—La Petite-Patrie, spoke more directly to the details of the plan, which includes elements such as enforcing Bill 101 for businesses under federal jurisdiction and going after web giants for tax income as ways of helping to defend Quebec’s distinct cultural identity, as well as other items like ensuring that all supreme court appointees are bilingual.
