It is the end of purgatory to the high official, Dominique Savoy, who will serve under the orders of Pierre Moreau to the ministry of Energy and natural Resources.
Ms. Savoie has made the headlines in 2016 in the wake of revelations of the analyst Annie Trudel who had been hired by the former minister of Transport Robert Poëti to shed light on irregularities in the MTQ. Ms. Trudel said not to be welcome to the MTQ, and accused the deputy minister to have tampered with his investigation document.
In may 2016, the prime minister Philippe Couillard announced that the deputy minister of the quebec department of TRANSPORT was dislocated of its functions as a result of the testimony-and the shock of Ms. Trudel and of the auditor Louise Boily. It was then shelved at the ministry of the executive Board after a summer of having bleached.
In march 2017, the Director of criminal and penal prosecutions has decided not to bring charges following the allegation of production of false documents and of intimidation that were Ms. Savoie and other senior officials of the MTQ.
“I have always exercised my duties with the greatest sense of the State, guided by ethical principles, and this, with professionalism and rigor. If the DPCP provides lighting needed, it remains the case that reputations have been unfairly tarnished in this episode”, she lamented in a written statement that it has been sent to the journalists at this time.
Ms. Savoie will be found as well, effective February 19, 2018, deputy minister of the ministry of Energy and natural Resources. She was “director of State assigned to the secretary general of the ministry of the executive Council” and was earning a salary of close to $210,000.
