Corruption crackdown, coming soon
The Parti Quebecois' first move in the up-coming session of the National Assembly will be to introduce a new anti-corruption law.
PQ MNAs are preparing for next week's return to the assembly with a caucus in Drummondville today.
"Our first priority, our first law, will be a clean-up of construction, political parties, and the municipal world," says Jean-François Lisée while in the hallway outside his meeting.
"It's part of our genetic make-up and it's one of the reasons Quebecers elected us."
He says the focus on corruption will not undermine the Parti Quebecois's other priorites, like language and identity. "We can walk, chew gum and text at the same time."
Minister Agnes Maltais says new details on their corruption crack-down will come down very soon.
"You'll see it next week. We'll table a law. A new law," she says.
"We have to change things and we are changing things. You'll see how next week."
