Revue Politique

May 10, 2018

Former prime minister Stephen Harper has got involved in the U.S. pulling out of the Iran nuclear deal by endorsing a New York Times article approving President Trump’s decision. However, Justin Trudeau reiterates Canada’s position in favor of the deal. The following MPs discuss this issue: Steven MacKinnon (Liberal Party), Pierre Paul-Hus (Conservative Party), as well as Robert Aubin (NDP).

This weekend, the Quebec conservatives will hold a General Council hoping to pass an agenda that Quebeckers will approve at the next election. Pierre Donais welcomes Alain Rayes, Richmond-Arthabaska MP and Andrew Scheer’s Quebec political lieutenant to talk about this point.

Mario Beaulieu has decided to remain with the Bloc Québécois. However, he promises to give leader Martine Ouellet a run for her money. He states that he will work very hard until the referendum is held in the beginning of June to ensure that she loses the Party’s confidence vote.

Le Devoir’s editorial writer Manon Cornellier comments the week’s political events.
