Asked by parliamentary reporters after accusing the opposition of not respecting the state's downsizing, Mr. Legault, Wednesday.

“I feel that the posts we have added are necessary for the work of the government,” he opined.

Despite these recruits, “everything is collapsing, it's terrible: schools, hospitals, justice,” lamented Unity MP Haroun Bowazi.
