The presence in the conservative ranks of a pro-life candidate is also unacceptable, the official opposition leader in Quebec said. We cannot accept thisshe said, adding that the… QLPwill not have a candidate who will challenge women’s rights this fall.

I would like to ask all political parties to have clear candidates who are not against abortion.

In a similar press conference, Gabriel Nadeau-Dubois, co-spokesperson for Québec Solidaire, also said that what’s happening in the united states used to be a stark reminder that women’s rights are never final

He also expressed concern that a motion by the Bloc, in which the free choice The woman’s decision to have or not have an abortion was defeated in the House of Commons on Tuesday, failing unanimous consent from deputies.

That also reminds us that, even here, in Canada, even here, in Quebec, there are people who want us to pull back on women’s rights, on women’s right to control their bodies.he noted. Me, it’s driving me crazy. It drives me crazy, especially as a new dad to a little girl.

With regard to the conservative candidacy of Dr. Eappen reminded Gouin’s deputy that his colleague Manon Massé had signed an open letter on March 8, ahead of International Women’s Day, in which he all candidates in the next election to support women’s right to control their bodies

Eric Duhaime defends himself

For his part, leader Éric Duhaime defends himself – first by recalling the PCQ’s officially pro-choice stance. That being said, people have the right to hold personal beliefshe makes clear.

People have a right to religious freedom in Quebec, and it’s not up to Mr. Legault, Ms. Anglade, or Mr. Nadeau-Dubois to decide who has the right to run and who doesn’t have the right to stand.
