Bloc Québécois Leader Yves-François Blanchet on Wednesday demanded the return of Parliament as he denounced Prime Minister Justin Trudeau as a “king.” “I know Canada is a monarchy, but I didn’t know it had an actual king, someone who decides everything and makes a show of it on a daily basis and does not answer to a parliament. It does look like a monarchy,” said Blanchet. Trudeau responded to the comments in his daily press conference outside Rideau Cottage by saying that it was irresponsible for an opposition party leader to cry “dictatorship” because they didn’t get their way. The Liberals, joined by the NDP and the Greens, voted to suspend regular sittings of Parliament until September.
