Blanchet Reacts to Singh’s Racism Allegation Against Bloc MP – June 18, 2020

In a news conference on Parliament Hill, Bloc Québécois Leader Yves-François Blanchet comments on Canada’s failed bid to win a temporary seat on the UN Security Council. The Bloc leader also faces questions about NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh’s accusation of racism directed at a Bloc MP during the June 17, 2020, sitting of the House of Commons. Singh was ordered to withdraw from the House after he declined to apologize for calling Bloc Québécois House leader Alain Therrien a racist; Singh’s remarks came after the NDP’s motion concerning systemic racism within the RCMP was denied unanimous consent in the House.
