Boisclair to quit New York post
La Presse reports Andre Boisclair will step down as Quebec's delegate-general temporarily to fight questions by a CAQ MNA about his past cocaine use and a reported government subsidy involving a construction boss said to have ties with organized crime.
Jacques Duscheneau says the former PQ leader needs to provide answers.
Boisclair, who might sue Duschesneau, has scheduled a news confererence for Monday in Montreal.
Given that Duchesneau was a former police investigator and head of the provincial anti-collusion unit, that left Quebecers wondering whether he actually knew something about Boisclair or whether he was engaging in a smear job.
Duchesneau has played coy, declining to say whether he holds any incriminating information.
Boisclair then threatened Duchesneau with legal action if he didn't retract his comments.
Duchesneau in turn said he had no intention of withdrawing the remarks.
