SAGUENAY | A group of fraud victims have sent a letter of 15 pages to members who analyze the parliamentary committee on bill 141 on the supervision of the financial sector in order to demand the establishment of a process of compensation be retroactive.
The letter was addressed to the deputies by Christian Vallières, a resident of the borough of Jonquière, in the Saguenay, in the name of the 13 victims of Steeve Duchesne. The latter was sentenced, on the 9th of January last, to three years in prison for defrauding the equivalent of $ 560,000 to former work colleagues of the mill Graphic Packaging Jonquière.
Bill 141 provides compensation for future victims who would be caught out by a financial advisor. However, the group of victims of Duchesne claims that a fund of $ 64 million, and of the Autorité des marchés financiers (AMF) serves also to compensate retroactively for the victims of the past, and that this background is enhanced by Quebec.
In the meantime, the victims have asked for a refund to the Authority of the financial markets. Their folder is in the course of the analysis.
The group has obtained the support of the member pq for Jonquière, Sylvain Gaudreault, who will defend their ideas in a parliamentary committee.
Without compensation, the victims of Steeve Duchesne have the impression to live in another shock, after the fraud.
If the national Assembly wishes to adopt this bill before the election in October next, the mps will have to do a real sprint to a parliamentary committee. The session ends in mid-June and the bill is almost 500 pages.
