The federal report on foreign interference has echoes all the way to the National Assembly: the Parti Québécois (PQ) is asking the Legault government to explore this avenue and possibly investigate.

The report in question published Monday concludes that elected members of the House of Commons “knowingly” work for foreign powers.

“It’s very serious,” PQ leader Paul St-Pierre Plamondon said in a press scrum at the National Assembly on Tuesday, even recalling that treason is a crime under the Criminal Code.< /p>

“We are faced with MPs who work not for their country, but for another country, who transfer confidential information. […] It affects Quebec. »

He criticized the Trudeau government for its “willful blindness” and its ideological interest in leaving certain foreign states free rein on its own territory.

The PQ leader wants to know what the situation is in Quebec and calls for action to protect the interests of the Quebec state.

He accuses the Legault government of “wait-and-see” and “putting its head in the sand.”

As to whether he is calling for a proper investigation form to the Minister of Public Security, François Bonnardel, he replied that he leaves it up to him to choose the means to take.
