Coalition Avenir Quebec’s François Legault first to disclose personal assets
With a week left before the Quebec election, party leaders are beginning to reveal their financial situations.
That includes a $4.5-million Montreal home on which he pays about $36,000 a year in municipal taxes. It is his only property.
The party, which has a strong stance against tax havens, notes in the announcement that Legault has no bank accounts outside of Canada.
Legault says he chose to be transparent and honest with voters and challenged other party leaders to release their tax returns and asset declarations before the Oct. 1 election.
