Mr. Speaker, this is the fourth time in less than 30 days that the Liberal Party of Quebec and the Government of Quebec have taken a stand against Ottawa's policies.
Three weeks ago, after unanimously rejecting the concept of "principal homeland" proposed by the federal Liberals, the Quebec national assembly asked the Minister of Natural Resources to reconsider her decision to cut funding to the tokamak research project. Two weeks ago, the Quebec national assembly unanimously condemned the environment minister's decision to ban the use of the additive MMT in gasoline.
Last week, the Quebec national assembly unanimously reiterated the fundamental right of the people of Quebec to make up their own minds about their political and constitutional future, whatever the federal justice minister might have to say about it.
The federal government is increasingly divorced from reality as seen by Quebec.
