    Éric Tétrault, who wishes to succeed Sam Hamad in Louis-Hébert, says he has nothing to reproach himself for, even if it is found, in 2008, with Nathalie Normandeau in the dressing room of Lino Zambito.

    As soon as his candidacy official, together with the prime minister and liberal leader Philippe Couillard, Éric Tétrault is found to justify his past, in addition to having to defend themselves to be parachuted into a county that he has left several years ago.

    While that was taking place the press conference, the witness the star of the Charbonneau commission, former construction entrepreneur Lino Zambito, has revealed that Mr. Tétrault was part of those whom he had greeted in her dressing room, during a Celine Dion concert, in August 2008.

    The era Charest

    The liberal leader has meanwhile defended to reconnect with the days of Jean Charest, as the reproaches of the Parti québécois. Mr. Tétrault has, however, been the communications director of prime minister Charest, from 2008 to 2010, and previously chief of staff for Jacques Dupuis, minister of public Safety.

    “The message is that we just recruited the president of the association of manufacturers and exporters of Quebec “, said Mr. Couillard.

    Mr. Tétrault has also ensured that it no longer maintains any link with the ex-federal minister Alfonso Gagliano, of which he was the spokesperson for, same thing for the ex-mayor of Terrebonne, Jean-Marc Robitaille, with whom he has worked as deputy chief of staff.

    “I’ve been working in institutional relations for the City of Terrebonne, said Mr. Tétrault. All I can say is that if, in the eyes of the authorities, there are people who were able to commit acts that should be punished, the authorities will have to act and do their work. “

    False start

    “It is a false start for the liberal Party, clearly,” responded the deputy caquiste Eric Cairo.

    The latter also has denied strongly that his political party had approached Mr. Tétrault for Louis-Hébert.

    In an interview with Radio X, last Thursday, Mr. Legault has, however, told her that he had indeed met with Mr. Tétrault in the presence of his chief of staff. “We had actually raised the possibility that he is a candidate on the South Shore of Montreal,” said Mr. Legault.
