The Standing for Dignity group asks that Jean Boulet no longer be a candidate

MONTREAL — The Debout pour laigue group is asking that the outgoing Minister of Immigration, Jean Boulet, no longer be a candidate for the Coalition avenir Québec following his statements on immigration.

In a press briefing on Friday in front of the Prime Minister’s offices in Montreal, the group asked the head of the CAQ, François Legault, to show consistency, since he affirmed that the outgoing minister had disqualified himself as minister. of Immigration, through his statements. He must therefore stop being a candidate for the CAQ, argued Wilner Cayo, president of the organization.

Minister Boulet had affirmed that « 80% of immigrants go to Montreal, do not work, do not speak French or do not adhere to the values ​​of Quebec society ».

Mr. Cayo argued that “Quebec is much more open than that”. Immigrants, whether recent or long-term, participate in the Quebec economy, in Quebec life, create jobs here and integrate well, he argued.

Standing for Dignity said he was « disappointed with these inflammatory remarks, these misleading remarks, which divide » from Mr. Boulet.
