QUEBEC | A lively debate about the place of women in the government of Quebec has concluded in a rat race, Wednesday, at the blue Room. “Shame on you” then let go of the prime minister, François Legault, to the place of the head of the official opposition, Dominique Anglade.
The rebuke came after an intervention by the liberal mp Hélène David.
It deplored the absence of women in the committee of the trained stimulus by the government Legault. It is comprised of four ministers male economic roles, those of the Economy (Pierre Fitzgibbon), Finance (Eric Girard), Labour, Employment and social Solidarity (Jean Boulet), as well as the president of the treasury Board (Christian Dubé).
“By 2020, it is unacceptable […]. The women are in the majority in the health care services, they écopent the more often the mental workload within the household, they occupy part-time jobs at the minimum wage, and they are the most affected by the massive loss of jobs. It would have had to convince the prime minister to surround himself with women to plan their recovery,” said Ms. David.
“I think that, if there is a government that wants to do the advancement of women in quebec society, it is the government of the QAF”, replied the leader of the government, Simon Jolin-Barrette, blaming the mp for the implication that the government was misogynistic.
It was also stated that gender equality had made little progress under the previous liberal government.
“I can reassure and assure my colleague that the voice of women is heard in the government. I would say that the larger pan of this crisis is health. We have a minister of women’s Health”, added the minister Isabelle Charest.
Visibly ruffled by the intervention of Hélène David, François Legault has dropped off the words “Shame on you” to the place of the head of the official opposition, Dominique Anglade.
“As the prime minister, a man, adds a layer and tell the head of the official opposition: “Shame on you“, […] I tell you, [as a] member man, I find it unacceptable and I should denounce it”, protested by following the leader of the liberal Party, Marc Tanguay.
The leader of the government, Simon Jolin-Barrette, said in blaming the mp Hélène David “ready[r] intentions” of the government. The minister of Justice, Sonia LeBel, has presented last week a draft law on the abolition of limitation periods, a subject that “especially affects women,” said Simon Jolin-Barrette.
Despite the intervention of the leader Tanguay, François Legault has not apologized for having detained Dominique Anglade off.
