Le premier ministre Stephen Harper a invité les Québécois, mardi, à résister aux appels à l'isolement.
Dans un discours à l'occasion de la Fête nationale du Québec, à Saint-Lazare-de-Bellechasse, M. Harper a demandé aux électeurs québécois de voter pour son parti aux prochaines élections d'octobre 2015.
Selon le premier ministre conservateur, avec seulement cinq députés au Québec, la voix des Québécois demeure néanmoins forte à Ottawa.
M. Harper a rappelé qu'au cours des dernières années, les conservateurs ont fait adopter à la Chambre des communes une motion pour reconnaître la nation québécoise, une démarche symbolique, en plus d'avoir fait une place à un représentant du Québec au sein de sa délégation à l'Unesco.
M. Harper était de passage dans la circonscription de Lévis-Bellechasse, représentée aux Communes par le ministre de la Sécurité publique, Steven Blaney.
Fidèle à son habitude, M. Harper a choisi de se rendre dans une petite localité rurale pour prononcer son discours devant environ 500 personnes réunies dans un centre communautaire.
M. Harper sera ce mercredi au Lac-Saint-Jean, où il participera à une annonce en compagnie du premier ministre québécois Philippe Couillard, député de la circonscription de Roberval.
