(Quebec) The Legault government refused a motion aimed at redressing a conviction of former MP Yves Michaud 20 years ago.
Recall that the National Assembly, at the call of the PQ government of Lucien Bouchard, then condemned remarks by Mr. Michaud which had been deemed anti-Semitic.
Mr. Michaud has always pleaded that his words were attributed to him without merit and demanded justice for him to be rehabilitated.
Friday morning, PQ leader Pascal Bérubé tabled a motion asking that the error made in 2000 be fixed.
The motion also asserted that the Assembly is not the appropriate forum to blame a citizen or do justice.
Minister Jean Boulet, who acted as government House leader on Friday, refused to table the motion.
