No, Quebec is not closed!

Friday, while being interviewed by Stéphan Bureau on the show The world is inverted In TVA, Gabriel Nadeau-Dubois asserted that Quebec Solidaire called for an “opening speech” on immigration while the Lego government speech was a “closing one”.

This is the usual talk of QS.

Others are closed, we are open.

Version of the famous phrase “We, we are peppy, peppy, others are not peppy”.

closing tag?

Here is what we can read about Newspaper Thursday :

“Traffic on Roxham Road is such that more than 3,600 asylum seekers are currently housed and fed in 20 hotels and temporary accommodation sites in Greater Montreal.

“While most of them are based around Dorval Airport and in downtown Montreal, hotels in Brossard, Boucherville or Laval also welcome them.”

It’s a sign of closure, right?

Here’s what we could read on Radio-Canada’s website on May 12, 2022:

Quebec will welcome more than 100,000 permanent, irregular and temporary immigrants in 2022, a record number. Of this number, approximately 70,000 permanent immigrants will be received, an increase of more than 50% compared to 2021 due to the catch-up that the Legault government is doing to compensate for the decrease in the number of immigrants during the pandemic. »

Mr. Nadeau-Dubois, instead of doubling down on empty phrases, has given us specific numbers.

From what percentage of immigrants living on its territory can a country be officially declared “open”?

In relation to its population, Quebec is currently one of the most welcoming countries in the world.

This, even if we have a great challenge to meet, is the protection of our language—which, I don’t know if you’re reading the papers these days, is threatened, especially in Montreal, where immigrants settle in great numbers.

Is this not enough for QS?
