Quebec wants to end politicians’ ‘repugnant’ mandatory oath to King Charles

According to a government official, Quebec will introduce a law that would allow elected officials to not swear to King Charles in Canada’s provincial assembly.

Coalition Avenir Quebec’s (CAQ) government’s parliamentary leader said that they are prepared to introduce a bill to end the requirement. Critics call it outdated.

Simon Jolin-Barrette stated: “I believe Quebecers are behind me. This can be done quickly together.

A spokesperson for the government suggested that the oath could be replaced by an optional one.


In the late 1500s, Britain colonized Canada and defeated French colonists.

Canada is now one the 15 Commonwealth realms, which are countries that still have the British monarch as their head state.

It is also a member the Commonwealth, a group that includes nations with similar interests and which was historically made up of ex-British Empire countries.

On Tuesday, the speaker of Quebec’s National Assembly stated that all elected members must swear to King Charles and not just Quebecers to fulfill their duties.

Two members of Quebec’s political parties, who are elected by voters, have said they won’t take the oath.

Paul St-Pierre Plamondon is the leader of the social democratic and sovereignist provincial party Parti Quebecois. He stated in a statement that he had “perjured myself” in his first act as an elected official, and that he had sworn allegiance to a foreign colonial power that has caused harm to Quebec.

King Charles will host a reception in advance of COP27, despite not being.

King Charles can make an impact on the issues that he so deeply cares about.

He said that his party had discussed several solutions with the CAQ but didn’t address the bill.

The Quebec National Assembly will resume its duties later in the month, following an October election in which the centre-right CAQ won a large majority.

Quebec has had a history of tension with Canada. In 1995, Quebec narrowly voted to remain part of the federal government.

Although Quebec’s parliament is one of only 10 provincial legislatures in Canada, it holds a unique position in Canadian politics. It has provided many prime ministers to Canada over the past 50 years, including Justin Trudeau’s father Pierre. The province also supplies three of nine supreme court judges.
