Legault chooses Facebook over the experts

Professors at UdeM are among those condemning the CAQ’s “simplistic” hatchet job on immigration, including the prof who was Simon Jolin-Barrette’s thesis supervisor till he quit to go into politics. Meanwhile, François Legault rejects the Montreal Chamber of Commerce’s resistance to his immigration changes, saying 90% of his Facebook followers agree with his plans.

That there is a textbook modern definition of populism. Never mind the professors and the business people, it must be right because Facebook says so.
