The member for Chomedey has not responded to questions from the media Wednesday morning.

The mna Guy Ouellette has found its place in the liberal caucus, but it does not recover, on the other hand, its seat of president to the Commission des institutions of the national Assembly.

The government Couillard sends it rather to the Commission of culture and education and the Committee on planning of the territory, in replacement of the liberal Pierre-Michel Auger.


The chair of the liberal caucus, Filomena Rotiroti, announced on Tuesday that Guy Ouellette had returned to the caucus.


In a letter addressed to the prime minister on Monday, Guy Ouellette was asked to resume his place in the caucus, but also his position of chairman of the Commission of the institutions to be able to ” continue [his] search for the truth “.


“I’ve always been very goal,” insisted the member for Chomedey in an impromptu press in the corridors of the Parliament building on Tuesday morning. “I have no grudge against UPAC “, he added, after a few weeks, however, having said to have been the victim of a “sting” of the police.


The member for Chomedey has not responded to questions from the media Wednesday morning.

Following his arrest, he had stated that the UPAC — which is accountable to the Board of the institutions — was trying to stifle. “[UPAC] will do everything for me to muzzle […] for that I cannot give my version or inform the population of all the bullying and intimidation that are currently underway. […] You’ve seen since Wednesday, we wanted to get away, ” he said at the microphone on 98.5. “I’m the only obstacle, as chair of the institutions and by the work that I do for the citizens of Quebec in the journey of the adoption of [the bill] will make the UPAC a body of police [independent],” he added.
