Marois says she was told to keep quiet about UPAC meeting

Parti Quebecois Leader Pauline Marois is defending her party's decision to be silent about a meeting two of its senior officials had with provincial anti-corruption officials.

Marois says the UPAC anti-corruption unit asked the party to not talk about February's meeting.

The PQ leader said today the meeting was an informal one and that nothing was seized.

Details of the meeting came out on Tuesday evening, forcing the PQ to issue a statement.

Marois has been attacking the Liberals for several days on integrity issues ahead of the April 7 election.

She says it's unfair to compare the February meeting with the raids on Liberal offices.

    Continuously wading in lies. Lies and deceit, the backbone of the separatists.

    right, keep quiet about PQ getting investigated and play it down when it comes out. But yell to the top of her lungs that others are corrupt. this woman is the very definition of GALL at it's worst.

    And just why would UPAC need Marois to keep quiet.

    Is there a PQ sympathizer in UPAC?

    Marois says the UPAC anti-corruption unit asked the party to not talk about February's meeting.

    If this is true one has to question the ethics if this department. Why would an independent body publicly announce one visit with the Liberals and keep the PQ visit under wraps? Something stinks here.

    Asked to keep quiet? By whom (someone in the media needs to ask)!

    The PQ campaign manager is my guess....
