“There’s no doubt in my mind that there’s no question about her integrity,” Barrette said.
“If my statements or my positions did insult her in any way, I again apologize to her.”
Last week, Barrette accused Lamarre of not disclosing information about pharmacy owners overcharging private insurers, calling it a “scandal.”
“I heard his apologies, I accept them and I hope for the best for the next days, months and years,” she responded.
Lamarre was president of the Quebec Order of Pharmacists before entering politics.
