MONTREAL – Accusations were flying at the National Assembly Wednesday as Quebec’s two minor opposition parties insisted the Liberals were refusing to reimburse what they call “dirty money.”
The opposition insisted the donations should be put in trust until she goes to court.
“I was surprised to see him getting up so fast. It looks like something was prepared,” said François Legault, CAQ leader.
“I hope it was not prepared with the Liberal government.”
“He has to base his very restrictive notion of the separation of powers on legal advice because in doing what he’s doing, it gives the impression there’s a political willingness to force the opposition to silence,” said Amir Khadir, Québec Solidaire MNA.
Normandeau and six other suspects are set to appear in Quebec City court next month.
