The provincial Liberals say ordinary Quebecers may have better luck getting answers from Premier Pauline Marois since, she's been avoiding questions from the opposition and journalists.
The Liberals are asking Quebecers to stop Marois while she's out campaigning and ask her to explain the "deal" between the FTQ and her husband, Claude Blanchet, that was referred to during the Charbonneau Commission.
"We are asking the people of Quebec, when they meet Mme. Marois they have to ask; what is the deal? Why don't you want to explain the deal?" Lise Thériault, the Liberal candidate in Anjou-Louis-Riel, said at a press conference Monday.
If Premier Marois hadn't called an election, she and her husband would have been testifying at a National Assembly committee this week to explain why their names were heard on wiretaps during the Charbonneau Commission.
"Mme. Marois started the election because she doesn't want to answer the questions, she doesn't want to give the truth to Quebecers and we think that's unacceptable."
Marois's name was also heard on tape when the head of the FTQ said he would ask her help to avoid a public inquiry into corruption.
Opposition parties forced a commission that would have required Marois and her husband to explain the "deal" during testimony between March 10th and 18th.
But it was cancelled because of the election call.
"She has to come and explain it, This is totally not normal,” Robert Poëti, Liberal candidate in Marguerite-Bourgeoys said.
