Normandeau subpoenaed to testify at Charbonneau Commission

Former Quebec deputy premier Nathalie Normandeau has received a subpoena from the Charbonneau Commission.

Normandeau says in a statement she received the subpoena this morning.

Jean Charest's former No. 2 said in a statement she's been meeting with investigators from the corruption inquiry in recent weeks.

If inquiry officials deem it necessary, Normandeau says she is willing to testify at the probe.

Her name has surfaced at the inquiry, with allegations she received gifts like hockey and concert tickets in exchange for favourable decisions when she was in cabinet.

Normandeau has vigorously denied the allegations.

    It appears that the QLP may have "Applebaumed" themselves.
    In other words, they did what Michael Applebaum did to himself: created the police force that gets them arrested.

    Wait, they haven't even got to the PQ. You ain't seen nothing yet. Now this is reality TV.

    I wonder if she'll also have a memory loss like the others. I'm still waiting for MISTER pauline marois and how he screwed the system with her help.
