Liberal family: The past catches up with Philippe Couillard


 27 April 2017

Since the beginning of the week, it has been the Chinese water torture for Quebecers, who are learning more and more about the good old liberal system of influence, deplored the CAQ leader, François Legault.

In a week span, they learned that:

  • The exmajor party fundraiser ,Marc Bibeau, and the former premier Jean Charest are under investigation by the UPAC
  • The actual premier ’s chief of staff was defending Marc Bibeau’ s economic interests
  • A liberal MNA, still in office, is apparently under investigation for having favored a real estate developer close to the mafia, according to Yves Francoeur of the SPVM police union
  • For François Legault, all these stories have the disastrous consequence of weakening the confidence of Quebecers. Member for Montarville, Nathalie Roy demanded that a parliamentary committee will be put in place to hear Yves Francoeur.

Overbilling at Hydro-Quebec: liberals refuse to apologize to Quebecers


 7 April 2017

Questioned by the Coalition Avenir Quebec, Energy Minister Pierre Arcand refused to apologize to Quebecers for the $1.4B overcharge they have been victim of since 2008, through their electrical bills.

Yet, the Couillard government was well aware of this disguised tax, since they themselves put an end to the reimbursement mechanism introduced by the Régie de l’énergie, in order to use this jackpot for a return to a balanced budget.

Remember that on Wednesday, not only the Minister acknowledged the existence of this overcharge; he also closed the door to an eventual reimbursement to Quebec’s families. The CAQ member for Saint-Hyacinthe, Chantal Soucy, denounced this arrogant attitude and this selfish act by the liberal government.

Extra-billing of $ 1.4 billion: The CAQ launches the campaign “Libéraux, Remboursez!” (Pay us back, liberals!)


 4 April 2017

Between 2008 and 2015, thousands of Quebecers have been unfairly billed $ 1.4 billions of dollars. This practice had been established by the liberal government of Jean Charest and perpetuated by the government of Philippe Couillard.

The energy critic for the CAQ, Chantal Soucy, strongly denounces this sneaky trick on the families of Quebec. For the residential customers, the overbilling represents about 587 millions.

The campaign “Libéraux, remboursez!” of the CAQ is available here . Chantal Soucy invites all Quebecers and clients of Hydro‑Quebec to publicly denounce this overbilling and request a refund by the liberals.
