Bloc Expels MP

September 12, 2013 by  

Bloc Expels MP, The Bloc Québécois has expelled MP Maria Mourani from its caucus over critical comments she made about the proposed Quebec charter of values.

In an interview with Radio-Canada on Wednesday, Mourani said Quebec’s charter of values was a political miscalculation on the part of Premier Pauline Marois.

But Bloc Québécois Leader Daniel Paillé said on Thursday that despite what Mourani would have Quebecers believe, the charter is far from being a serious strategic error on the part of the sovereignty movement.

In an interview with Radio-Canada on Thursday, Paillé said Mourani’s comments crossed the line and are “irreconcilable” with the party’s position.

Mourani was making the comments as spokeswoman of a pro-sovereigntist group in favour of secularism which calls itself “Les indépendantistes pour une laïcité inclusive.”

Paillé said he expelled Mourani from the caucus after asking the MP from Ahuntsic to step down as spokeswoman of the group – something she refused to do, he says.

“Quebecers have the right to expect that all federal parties will respect their right to debate which is what the Bloc Québécois is doing, and that’s why we clearly support the proposals made by the Parti Québécois,” Paillé said.
