    The minister François Blais has brought back ghosts of the past in this parliament is back in session in the national Assembly by unchecking a hint to its rival political Éric Caire.

    The mp caquiste questioned the minister François Blais about Florent Francoeur, who has been appointed the grand patron of the human resources of the government, even if it had been the subject of five complaints of sexual misconduct, while he was the CEO of the College of human resources advisors.

    “Mr. President, lying by omission, which allows you to obtain a position that we would not have had otherwise, it appears to me to be extremely serious, it appears to me to be grounds for impeachment. The removal made it so, and it is provided for in the decree, which has appointed Mr. Francoeur, the impeachment so that there was no premium or compensation to be paid to Mr. Francoeur. The easy choice, the choice to abandon the victims, the choice to send an ambiguous message, it was to pay him a $ 170,000, which the government has chosen to do. Why?”, he launched to the minister of Employment.

    Then, the minister François Blais did not think twice before personally attacking Eric Cairo with his CV and embellished, who had made the headlines in 2009, when he was a candidate for the Coalition avenir Québec (CAQ).

    “Listen, Mr. President, to lie in his CV, too, huh, and maybe he would also have a zero tolerance of it. What happened with Mr. Florent Francoeur, it is extremely… this is extremely unfortunate, as we have already mentioned. I have to say that we were very satisfied, very satisfied with the work of Mr. Francoeur. The labour market partners were also extremely satisfied, eh, the work they were doing. However, in the situation, it was impossible for us, given the content of the responsibilities that he has, it was absolutely impossible for us to keep it in its position. We have therefore decided to buy back his contract, terminate it, and to make sure we truly give a very positive message to society,” he answered.

    On his CV which was available at the time on the web site of the ADQ Éric Caire suggested that he was a bachelor from Laval University in communications, when in reality there has followed a single session in 1993.
