Mr. Speaker, the parliamentary battle over Bill C-20 is over, but the political fight has now begun.
The undemocratic nature of Bill C-20 reveals the base instincts of this government, as it pursues its assimilating attack against the people of Quebec, while showing its inability to renew a federalism that is centralizing, dominating and wasteful.
Through their support of this bill, the federal Liberals from Quebec are showing their true colors and are confirming their subservience to the interests of the rest of Canada.
The excellent budget brought down in the National Assembly this week marks the beginning of economic deliverance for Quebec. Pursuing the battle will make Quebec's social and cultural deliverance a very close reality and its political emancipation a greater possibility than ever.
Together, let us continue the fight, the fight for the freedom of the Quebec people.
