Bloc Quebecois leader Yves-Francois Blanchet accused Jagmeet Singh of creating a "serious" social crisis and being responsible for "hatred."
Singh and the Bloc have developed a combative relationship ever since the New Democrat leader called Bloc MP Alain Therrien a "racist" in the House of Commons and refusing to apologize for it.
Blanchet openly criticized New Democrat MP Alexandre Boulerice for "being proud that his leader attacked a member in an orchestrated partisan scene, supported by [Justin] Trudeau, against a party more progressive and worthy than his own."
In response, the NDP MP went on to criticize Blanchet for meeting with Quebec Premier Francois Legault, accusing Blanchet of starting a "conspiratorial."
Blanchet responded by saying he made no secret of the meeting, while highlighting the "unfounded accusations" made against the premier and Quebecers.
"I invite you to ask the leader of the NDP himself if he is not responsible for something serious in two respects. One, he called the Prime Minister of all Quebecers racist because he does not recognize the term systemic racism, and two, one of his deputies, in a tweet, associated the Bloc Québécois with slavery and the Holocaust.
“Is it not the leader of the NDP who is looking seriously at himself in the mirror and knowing if he has not created a serious social crisis, a serious division between people who […] will have to remain friends, and for now, are dealing hatred and unfounded accusations because of him, and him alone, and him personally?" the Bloc leader said.
