Marois rescinds double-dip deal for Boisclair
Andre Bosiclair's sweet deal has been cancelled.
Earlier this week, the former PQ leader had been appointed Quebec's Delegate-General to New York.
But, he and Premier Pauline Marois came under withering criticism for the agreement which accorded Boisclair the status of a permanent civil servant, or a near lifetime job because he had also been appointed assistant deputy minister in the International Relations Department.
This morning in Quebec City Premier Marois announced that the agreement had been modified and while Boisclair will take up the post in New Yorkhe will no longer have status as a permanent Quebec civil servant.
