Next up at Charbonneau: Julie Boulet


Former transport minister Julie Boulet will be the next to take the stand at the Charbonneau Commission — though that won't happen until at least Wednesday.

Tuesday morning, former paving company boss Louis Marchand returned to the stand for cross-examination.

On Monday, Marchand said he had been invited to a $1000-a-plate Liberal fundraiser by one of her aides.

He declined the invitation, and later got a phone call from Boulet herself, telling him how disappointed she was.

Marchand also suggested that all the major parties at the National Assembly routinely flout the province's strict party financing laws — at the same time they denounce each other for hints of supposed violations of those laws.

Boulet will be the first sitting MNA to go before the Commission. She was re-elected as the MNA for the Laviolette riding on April 7, but was not named to the new Couillard cabinet.

    You mean individuals who donated $1K for a diner with her weren't doing it because they support Liberal values?
