Lisée loses assistant chief of staff over Charter

Christine Fréchette

Jean-Francois Lisée's assistant chief of staff has quit because of the Quebec Charter of Values.

Christine Fréchette quit Friday, according to La Presse, because she could not defend the Charter.

She stayed on the job over the last few months because she was hoping that during the parliamentary commission, the party would tone down the rhetoric. Instead, it is launching an election and hoping for a majority so the charter can become law.

Frechette is quoted saying the Charter will be an important part of the campaign and she isn't comfortable defending it.

  • Cote St. Luc seniors drop-in centre will remain open

    A popular Cote St. Luc seniors drop-in centre will stay open, at least for now.

    The Montreal Gazette reported Saturday that the Caregiver Support Centre in the Cavendish Mall, which was supposed to close at the end of the month, had a late Friday reprieve from the health authority.

    Meanwhile the paper reports Cote St. Luc Mayor Anthony Housefather and Hampstead Mayor Bill Steinberg will meet next week to see if they can arrange alternate west-end facilities for the 40 seniors who use the centre.

    It's still not known if the decision is permanent, but certainly a relief for family members and caregivers who desperately want to keep their loved ones in their own community.
