Attorney General Simon Jolin-Barrette this weekend gave an interview to my colleague Patrick Bellerose who has not been bitten by worms.
I would even say that the minister dropped a bombshell.
IT GOES ON!
Here is an excerpt from the text by Patrick Bellerose:
“For the Attorney General, Quebec laws should be evaluated under the Quebec Charter of Rights and Freedoms, and not under the one imposed by Ottawa when the Constitution was rolled back in 1982.”
“The Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms was not adopted by the Quebec National Assembly. So there is a lack of legitimacy…” he stresses.
The minister wants a “collective conversation” on how to evaluate Quebec’s laws. “I believe that we should govern ourselves according to the Quebec Charter,” he stresses.
That’s right: Simon Jolin-Barrette wants all legislation passed by the National Assembly to be governed by the Charter of Rights and Liberties of Quebec and not the Charter of Rights and Liberties of Canada, which advances the notion of individual rights and takes collective rights into account of the nation of Quebec is not sufficient.
In other words, are some people freaking out because we applied the “controversial” exception clause to Acts 21 and 96?
These people better tie their cloaks with brooches because they didn’t see anything!
We’re going, friends!
We’re pretending the Canadian Charter of Rights doesn’t even exist!
Anyway, why should we recognize them? It was forced upon us by force! We didn’t even sign the constitution!
BATTLE OF THE TITANS
No more tattooing!
Quebec is now taking Canada head-on!
“Your charter of rights and freedoms, you can fuck it where I think, because for us it has no value …”
The Anglos will fall solid! Some will surely go so far as to say that François Legault and Simon Jolin-Barrette should be tried for treason.
After all, they are Canadian! Who brandish their Canadian passport when abroad!
How can they say such things about Trudeau Sr.’s Bill of Rights, which is considered a sacred document by many Canadians?
The founding text of modern Canada?

QUESTION TO MR. LEGAULT
However, Simon Jolin-Barrette’s explosive departure prompts me to ask François Legault a very simple question…
Like all other Quebec Prime Ministers before you, you do not recognize the Canadian Constitution.
And you want to protect Quebec from Canada’s Charter of Rights and Freedoms, which requires our laws to respect values that aren’t ours.
Well, Prime Minister, the Constitution and the Canadian Charter are Canada’s DNA!
Its very basics!
Its molecular structure!
How can you, in the same breath, affirm that establishing Canada poses an existential threat to Quebec… and say you want Quebec to remain in Canada?
Explain us because we are having trouble following you…
