    The member for la Peltrie Eric Cairo was forced to withdraw his remarks in the house, Wednesday, as they were “strictly criminal”, was held by the president of the national Assembly, Jacques Chagnon.

    The mp caquiste appealed again to the president of the treasury Board, Pierre Arcand, the subject of the “ads-partisan paid for with public funds by the government,” noting that the government has spent “25 times more” to “six months to elections” during a campaign carried out in 2014.

    Mr. Arcand has, for its part, defended these sums invested in the ads, which are less if we compare them with those injected by the pq government previously. He has also argued that “the campaigns put forward by the government, including, among others on the economic level” are not “partisan campaigns”. “It is the true information campaigns”, he pleaded.

    It is at this time that the member caquiste has committed his misconduct in parliament.

    “Yes, go explain that to Quebeckers, the advertising with the small bell to tell us when there is the punch, there, to enhance the value of the liberal Party, that it is in their interest. But I’ll never be jealous of a government that denies his word. I will never be jealous of a government that misappropriates public funds for his personal benefit”, he said raising the ire of his liberal opponents.

    “Mr. The member for la Peltrie, I would ask you to withdraw the comments that are strictly to accusations of criminal. Then, I would ask you to withdraw your remarks and finish your question”, asked the president of the national Assembly.

    “I withdraw, Mr. Chairman. But I’ll continue by saying, ” if it remains a little bit of honor to this government, can he make the commitment now to stop the use of public funds for its promotion?”, concluded Eric Cairo.
