Marc Tanguay takes on Québec solidaire

While the two parties will soon be engaged in a political standoff, during the by-elections in the Saint-Henri–Sainte-Anne riding, the interim leader of the Quebec Liberal Party (PLQ) Marc Tanguay shoots an arrow to the figurehead of Québec solidaire (QS).
The Liberal criticizes Gabriel Nadeau-Dubois' position on Bill 96, accusing him of “not defending the rights and freedoms of all Quebecers.”
“Québec solidaire is an independentist party that does not defend the freedoms of all citizens. Gabriel Nadeau-Dubois supported the CAQ, which attacked our rights and freedoms with Bill 96,” lambasted Marc Tanguay, through a tweet.
Gabriel Nadeau-Dubois doit arrêter de se défiler. Il doit dire pourquoi il ne défend pas les droits et libertés de toutes les Québécoises et de tous les Québécois. Pourquoi a-t-il abandonné les beaux grands principes de #QS? #polqc pic.twitter.com/WiicaLCg82

Recall that the PLQ and the Parti Québécois (PQ ) voted against the adoption of this bill, which reinforces the Charter of the French language, while QS voted in favor of it.
“The deputies of Quebec solidaire voted in favor of a Commissioner for the French language which brings us back to an analysis of the ethnic vote of Jacques Parizeau and which considers the language spoken at home as a threat”, thundered Marc Tanguay.< /p>
When it’s time to defend our charters of rights and freedoms, Gabriel Nadeau-Dubois is as much of an identity as François Legault.

The Liberal leader denounces what he perceives as inconsistencies when “on paper, Québec solidaire has a program that says defend the rights of all components of the population of Quebec, including those of minorities, and ensure that any action by the State takes their interests into account”.
Marc Tanguay thus accuses QS of derogating to its own principles and wonders if the “malleability” of the latter falls within the framework of “political calculations”.
Québec solidaire is currently holding its national council.
