Law on the secularity of the State: “15 to 20 Quebec” would have responded to the call of Manitoba
The canadian Press
WINNIPEG — The premier of Manitoba, Brian Pallister, is recognized for never to run away from the confrontation, promises an approach that is more “bold” in 2020. He also reiterated his intention to continue his crusade against the quebec law on the secularity of the State.
Two weeks ago, the government of manitoba has purchased advertising in media of quebec, inviting employees of the State who feel threatened by this act of moving to Manitoba, which is looking to fill bilingual positions in the public service.
Nearly a score of Quebecers would have responded to the advertising campaign of Manitoba, according to Mr. Pallister, who dream to pursue the approach.
“The answer, in the short term, 15 to 20 Quebec in two weeks showed an interest to visit us, and potentially to apply for a job in the public service of Manitoba,” he said in French.
“It is a response minimum, but it is encouraging,” he added.
The prime minister of Québec, François Legault, had replicated the campaign of Mr. Pallister, claiming that it should instead work to improve French-language services to its population.
On Tuesday, the premier was presenting his programme for the new year, while his progressive conservative government is in the third month of his second term.
“Manitobans have asked for boldness. They have had the audacity (in the election of 2016). Then, we were re-elected, then they will have even more,” said Mr. Pallister in a press conference.
In addition to its dispute with the province of Quebec, the prime minister has said they want to continue to control spending in the public sector despite the protests of trade unions, as well as to reduce taxes despite criticism from the opposition.
