Legault’s comments about ‘suicidal’ immigration increases stir controversy

Comment by Coalition Avenir Québec leader François Legault and by incumbent labour and immigration minister are sparking debate. Legault said on Day 32 of the campaign trail that it would be "suicidal" for the Quebec nation if more than 50,000 immigrants arrived in the province per year. Those words came just hours after comments from Jean Boulet surfaced saying the majority of immigrants who settle in Montreal don't work, don't speak French and don't share Quebec values.
