  • First I want to say a few words about the tragic death of George Floyd in the

  • United States. As Premier of Quebec, I stand in solidarity with the people who

  • denounce racial violence we must continue to build a society free of

  • racism. I want to thank the vast majority of people who respected the distancing

  • measures and who were a mask at the protest in Montreal yesterday. On the

  • other hand, those who took advantage of it to loot and vandalize must face the

  • legal consequences.

  • Mr. Premier, going back to yesterday's protest one of the

  • main messages from the protesters was that systemic

  • racism is not just a U.S. problem, that there is systemic racism with Montreal

  • police and the SQ. Do you agree with those protesters?

  • I would say that

  • yes, we have to admit that we have some problems in in Montreal, in Quebec, but

  • the problem is not as worse as in the United States, I would say. But still, I don't

  • like to see that fewit's a real very, very small minority of our police people

  • that they choose a bit the people arrested, so I would like that we stop

  • that and I want to make sure that the study that is done and the book that

  • will be presented, the green book by Geneviève Guilbault, this problem will be studied

  • in order to that we make sure that it doesn't happen anymore.

  • I'm gonna retake the question of my colleague from CBC and I'll just go in

  • a little more detail here. Justin Trudeau, earlier today he said

  • regarding the protests in the U.S., but in Canada as well, he said anti-black racism

  • is real, unconscious bias is real, systemic discrimination is real and they

  • happen in Canada. So do you still think that Trudeau is wrong and that the

  • protesters yesterday are wrong and that there is no systemic discrimination and

  • systemic racism in Quebec?

  • We have this discussion very often. I think there

  • is some discrimination in Quebec but there is no systemic discrimination.

  • There's no system in Quebec of discrimination. It's a very, very small

  • minority of the people that are doing some discrimination.
