Conservative lawmakers and Liberal ministers fought over a recent “freedom convoy” protest in Ottawa when the House of Commons began to sit on Monday.
Conservative leader Erin O’Toole worked hard to talk to them early in the question period, as Prime Minister Justin Trudeau signaled that he would not meet protesters earlier that day because of their views. I asked if I would.
“Does the Prime Minister agree to go through the department and meet some of his federal-affected truck drivers?” Autour asked.
“Mr. Speaker, science is very clear. The best way to survive this pandemic is to get people vaccinated. In this way, the supply chain disruption caused by this pandemic is over. You can do it, “Trudeau replied.
After that, Outur attacked Trudeau’s leadership and used the recent COVID-19 diagnosis to show that government policy is increasing social tensions, just one of the tools to deal with a pandemic. I made an impression.
“Mr. Speaker, it’s not leadership when ignoring and splitting when a country needs to be united,” said Autour.
“Vaccines are very important, but as the Prime Minister’s own COVID diagnosis shows after three vaccinations, to get our lives back to normal, Mr. Speaker, you need to use all the tools in your life. When will it return to normal? “Autur asked.
“I know, and every Canadian knows how frustrating it is to have to deal with this pandemic for the next two years, and continuously. But Canadians also step. We’ve never been so united in Up. Almost 90% of Canadians are vaccinated, “Trudeau replied.
Conservative Deputy Leader Candice Bergen also called on Trudeau to “heal the cracks” with those who oppose him, rather than calling his name or lighting a gas lamp. operation Including providing false information).
“I think we all support freedom of speech in this house,” replied Minister of Public Security Marco Mendicino.
“But there is a big difference between the incitement to freedom of speech and hatred, the incitement to violence, and the blasphemy of the War Memorial. I hope the chair and my honorable colleagues will blame it in the clearest words. . “
Mendicino is a protester climbing to the top of the National War Memorial, and perhaps Photo Apparently patrolling the social media of those holding the Nazi flag away from the Capitol.
“Of course, we all condemn the hateful and destructive acts of a small number of people in any protest,” Bergen argued.
“Are you standing in front of the statue of Queen Victoria in Manitoba, destroying the statue of Sir John in Montreal, or flagging Terry Fox? Whether it’s a burning church, you have a black face. Whether it’s the flag of Hezbollah or the flag of the Nazis, we all blame it. “
Conservative lawmaker and financial critic Pierre Poirievre recently refocused this angle during the intervention, saying that the views of the minority of the protests should not pollute the entire group.
“Just because the prime minister wears racist costumes over and over again doesn’t mean that all liberals are racist,” Poirievre said.
“Why doesn’t the Prime Minister choose personal responsibility instead?”
Government house leader Mark Holland pleaded, saying it was time to “go ahead” and relieve tensions.
“I would like to ask citizens not to make things worse, but to work together to find ways to make things worse and prevent the blockade that is happening in this city, and citizens are making their lives and legitimate dissatisfaction. Can be heard quite a bit. “
“I hope his government respects the thousands of people who are currently fighting for their livelihood, trying to do their best to get the country back on track,” Poilievre said. rice field.
