Quebec set a goal of administering the first vaccine dose to 75 per cent of adults by June 24, but now officials expect to reach that goal by June 15, Legault said . Quebec Premier François Legault was all smiles when he announced the gradual lifting of measures this summer and congratulated residents for following the rules.

She said a Québec Solidaire government would raise the minimum wage to an hour by May 2019 — a move she said would raise the living standard for one million Quebecers. "It's the right time to improve peoples ' working conditions, and raising the minimum wage is the base, especially for people to get their heads above water," Massé said , accusing the other three party leaders of Legault also used the word "illegals" to describe some asylum seekers who have come into the country. He asked Couillard to apologize for a Liberal party candidate who accused the CAQ of being a racist party.

QUEBEC — Premier François Legault has lashed out at media and politicians from outside Quebec who have tried to link the tragic events in London, Ont., with Quebec’s state secularism law, Bill 21.

“I saw certain editorials, certain commentaries in the rest of Canada that tried to create a link between what happened in London and Law 21,” Legault said at a news conference to announce the creation of a new museum program showcasing Quebec history and culture.

“I find this revolting and totally unacceptable. We are not going to let journalists in the rest of Canada denigrate and treat Quebecers as racists.”

He went on to say "And the thing about it is , whether you Asian, Hispanic, other than European, and you join the police force, you should know the oppression being placed down on our people . That's why I called him a ch*nk, I wanna get that clear. "I was at work and I was pulled down here, and everybody left," he said . Christian magazine editor says he won ' t hire Ivy League graduates anymore because they're either woke and self-important or too afraid to stand up to cancel culture.

As he has done in the past, Fauci argued that when he has seemingly changed his position on issues like masking, it’s because new data has been presented. “As a scientist, as a health official, when those data change, when you get more information, it's essential that you change your position “Beyond the dangerous arrogance and pomposity of proclaiming ‘anyone who criticizes me is attacking Science’ - thus placing himself off-limits from questioning - he *admitted* he purposely issued false, anti-science, politicized claims, such as telling people not to wear masks,” journalist Glenn Greenwald tweeted.

It was the second day in a row that Quebec politicians reacted to columnists and politicians, including federal Transport Minister Omar Alghabra, who said Bill 21 was “part of the environment that Muslim Canadians feel that they are being targeted by.”

On Sunday, four members of a Muslim family were killed when a pickup truck jumped the curb and ran over them.

Police said they were targeted because of their religion .

The three opposition leaders in the National Assembly have also reacted to certain media stories outside Quebec, saying attempting to link an attack with a law from another province is simplistic at best.

On Thursday, Quebec MNAs took their irritation over the issue a step further, adopting a motion proposed by the Parti Québécois on the issue in the legislature.

Many people on the political left have a tendency to place scientific method on a pedestal and not consider it for what it is – which is , purely and simply, scientific method. Rather, they treat science as a sort of dogma which cannot be challenged. In a sense, their attitude towards it is not that different from a However, Dr. Fauci comes across as if he is the self-declared face of science and that he cannot be questioned for this very reason. Aside from this being wildly untrue, this is a prime example of scientism. It promotes the idea that his diplomas and governmental position make him someone who

Racist accusations are really frustrating, especially you’re labeled as “ racist ” over a conversation that has nothing to do with race. At the end of the day, you know in your gut that your statement was not intended to be racist . Listen for instances of racism in other people ’s attitudes or conversations. Use your own experiences to lead an educated and civil conversation as you politely point out another person’s racism . With your own experience, you can lead a productive conversation that may inspire positive change in the other person![16] X Research source.

The motion states that the “National Assembly strongly denounces all forms of hate and violent crime.

“That it denounces all links by certain politicians and media in the rest of Canada between the tragedy in London, Ont. and a Quebec law.”

The motion was adopted unanimously on what was the second-to-last day of the current session. The house recesses for the summer Friday.

In Ottawa, the Bloc Québécois tried to have a similar motion adopted in the House of Commons, but failed to get the consent of the house to proceed.

The motion proposed to denounce any link between the tragedy and Bill 21, the law that prohibits persons in positions of authority from wearing religious symbols such as hijabs and turbans on the job. It was adopted in 2019.

Asked what has irritated him the most about the editorials and comments, Legault said it was the attempt to link Bill 21 “which does not apply in the rest of Canada,” and what happened in London.

‘In all cases, it’s safe’: Quebec premier stands by advice on AstraZeneca vaccine

  ‘In all cases, it’s safe’: Quebec premier stands by advice on AstraZeneca vaccine François Legault explained that people who got that brand of vaccine as their first shot can safely opt to stay the course or switch to Pfizer and Moderna for their second dose. Either choice is a good one, he said. "In all cases, it's safe according to Dr. Arruda and Quebec public health," he told reporters Friday. "That's what is important to take away.

Virginia was especially keen to join the nationwide efforts to refashion children’s education into a new and patronizing style of social control. Last month, Virginia announced it would streamline educational “equity” – a plan which involves replacing math with “foundational concepts,” ditching algebra, geometry, trigonometry and calculus, and imposing a lowest-common-denominator model of teaching and wiping out the option of taking any advanced math course before entering the 11th grade.

During his address, he said he would be meeting with Mr Putin to 'let him know what I want him to know'; told the crowd that 'global warming' is the biggest threat to the US; teared up as he paid tribute to his late veteran son Beau; and boasted that 'America is back'.

“Bill 21 has nothing, nothing at all with what happened in London, Ont.,” Legault said. “It’s totally unacceptable to see some people from the rest of Canada trying to put both subjects together.

“I will not accept that these people treat Quebecers as racist.”

He made no mention Thursday of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who has also been attacked by the Bloc for his comments about the tragedy.

While Trudeau has said he does not agree with those who say Bill 21 fosters hate and discrimination toward minorities, he made other comments on face coverings that some felt were misplaced.

He said he would not be surprised if, in the weeks and months to come, that there is a change of attitudes about religious symbols in Quebec “in part because for the last year we’ve been spending a lot of time with masks covering our faces and receiving services from the state.

“And also because there is a real concern about the rise in intolerance and Islamophobia.”
