Mixed reviews for Liberal solution to protect Quebec seats
While NDP MP Daniel Blaikie calls Bill C-14 a ‘good start,’ the Bloc Québécois has criticized the proposed legislation for failing to protect Quebec’s overall proportion of seats in the House.
Intergovernmental Affairs Minister Dominic LeBlanc, left, tabled the Liberal government's proposal to protect Quebec's seats in the House on March 24. Ensuring the province doesn't drop a seat was part of the Liberal-NDP agreement, and NDP MP Daniel Blaikie says the bill is an 'important step' forward. The Hill Times photographs by Andrew Meade
