“I won’t go back on it. Yesterday, I made a point of long press, accurate, and complete. It is finished”, he hammered in trade tight with several journalists.
Mr. Blanchet declined to respond to any question on the subject on Monday, on parliament hill, arguing that he had approached the question in a press conference full, the day before.
“The only people who I can agree that they consider that it is their job – that pose more questions, it’s you”, he launched to the QMI Agency during his press conference Monday. Our journalist asked him then if he was concerned that parliamentarians deal with these allegations and that it would compromise his job as elected.
