The CAQ used public funds for partisan purposes, concludes the Ethics Commissioner
The MNA for Arthabaska, Eric Lefebvre.
The use of public funds by the office of a CAQ deputy is “worrying”, concludes the Ethics Commissioner in a report tabled Thursday. Constituency employees have been mandated to prepare a media placement for the election campaign, while they are paid by the National Assembly.
It’s the office of government whip Éric Lefebvre that is targeted by the report, launched following a complaint by Liberal MP Marc Tanguay.
“I am deeply concerned about the extent of state goods and services that may be, or may have been, used for this purpose,” writes Ethics Commissioner Ariane Mignolet.
