“I am uncomfortable when Prime Minister Legault puts words in the mouth of someone who did not say them, especially words of this content. It’s serious,” he cursed upon his arrival at the last scrum of the season, Wednesday morning.

Pablo Rodriguez was reacting to the words of Prime Minister Legault who, in the verbal battle between Ottawa and Quebec on the subject of immigration, declared Tuesday that if Canada had not “doubled the number of temporary immigrants”, it would not There would be “no housing crisis except holes left and right” in Quebec.

The Quebec Prime Minister responded to Marc Miller, who had accused him of “sucking sugar on the backs of immigrants” by saying, as Mr. Legault said, that “100% of the housing problem comes from ‘increase in temporary immigration’.

For Marc Miller, François Legault “invites his figures” and “invents causality” between the lack of housing and significant temporary immigration.

“I do not deny the volume, but there is an exaggeration which means that immigrants are targeted,” lamented the Liberal MP from the Montreal region on Tuesday.

Wednesday morning, Mr. Miller preferred not to add fuel to the fire by rushing towards the Liberal meeting without turning to the journalists. It was his colleague Pablo Rodriguez who took the lead.

“I did not hear Mr. Miller say that Quebecers are racist,” said Mr. Rodriguez, categorically.

“He never said it, he doesn’t mean it, and Quebecers are not only non-racist, but they are among the most open and welcoming people in the world. He [François Legault] push it a little further.”
