Party of Quebec Canada hopes to bring Anglos and Federalists to justice

English-speaking Quebecers will soon have another party to vote for and represent in the National Assembly: the Canadian Party of Quebec.

The party positions itself as a “federalist party for no reason”, one of the founding principles of which is bilingualism.

“If you believe in a country called ‘Canada’ and a united Canada that includes Quebec, there really is no choice,” said Colin Standish, a spokesman for the party.

“The Canadian Party of Quebec is really the only option that is shamelessly, shamelessly and proudly Canadian.”

Led by Standish, a Quebec eastern lawyer, the party says it will oppose some of Quebec’s most controversial laws, including Bill 21, a provincial secularism law they want to repeal; and Provincial Language Reform Bill 96.

“Of course, English speakers, minorities and well-meaning Quebecers have been attacked for four years now,” Standish told Olx Praca.

Standish is the second person this month to announce the formation of a new provincial party vying for English-speaker votes.

Former mayoral candidate Balarama Holness said last week that he also throws his hat into the ring.

Parti Québécois and Québec Solidaire say they are not worried about increased competition.

“I don’t think these parties pose any threat to Quebec Solidaire,” said Gabriel Naudo-Dubois, leader of Québec Solidaire.

Parti Québécois MNA Pascal Berube says that one more party means more choice for English speakers.

“I think it’s the Liberal Party’s business, I’m sure they’re more concerned than we are,” Berube said.

Liberals in Quebec are concerned that the new options could divide English-speaking votes.

They invite people to take a look at their track record.

“Look who opposed bill 21, who opposed bill 40, who votes against bill 96 and understand that the Liberal Party of Quebec is deeply interested,” said Andre Fortin of the Liberal Party of Quebec. .

For Quebec Prime Minister François Legault, bilingual Quebec is not an option.

“If we want French to stay in place 50, 100 years from now, we have to have Bill 96, Bill 101, we need immigrants to go to French schools,” Lego said when asked about Standish’s new party.

Both the Standish and Holness parties still require permission from Elections Quebec before they become official.
