Jean Boulet « disqualified » as Minister of Immigration

Jean Boulet was « disqualified » as Minister of Immigration in a second term of the CAQ, said Premier François Legault, because of offensive comments about immigrants.

Last September 21, during a debate in Mauricie, Minister Boulet declared that 80% of immigrants “do not work, do not speak French, or do not adhere to the values ​​of Quebec society”. For François Legaut, his minister made remarks in « the heat of the moment » which are « not acceptable » and « false ». On Mario Dumont’s show, he claimed that Jean Boulet « disqualified himself » as Minister of Immigration.

The minister later apologized on his twitter account for the comments he made during the debate, explaining that he had “poorly expressed” his thoughts.
