(Ottawa) The premier of Quebec, François Legault, will still have to wait before seeing a single tax return administered by Quebec. The Bloc Québécois bill to this effect, which had received the support of a majority of the deputies, was defeated on Tuesday at a federal committee.

On Tuesday, at the finance committee, the Liberals voted against all the clauses of the Bill by Bloc member Gabriel Ste-Marie. The Conservatives, who were nevertheless in favor of the idea, abstained from voting. Only the Bloc and the New Democratic Party voted in favor of the bill.
Mr. Ste-Marie, reacting on Twitter, was sorry that Quebec continues to file two tax returns.
If his bill had passed, it would have forced the federal Minister of Finance to enter into negotiations with the Government of Quebec so that the province collects federal personal and corporate income taxes.
Conservative leader Erin O’Toole has defended himself for helping to postpone this request from Mr. Legault until the end of the day.
In a press conference, Mr. O’Toole blamed the pandemic which brings its share of economic uncertainty. In his opinion, this is not the time to cut jobs for federal public servants in Jonquière or Shawinigan, where there are offices of the Canada Revenue Agency.
I hope you are in health and well.
