It’s the result of another auditor general’s report that found Daoust personally authorized the sale of Investissement Quebec’s shares in Rona.
The CAQ said in a press conference on Feb. 3 that the minister told media he was not aware of the sale and accused Daoust of lying to the public.
“She’s not to be blamed because she’s working with the documents that have been given to her,” he said.
“What I said in February is exact – I’ve never been informed of that transaction.”
Daoust said the auditor general is mistaken, and he stands by his original comments.
