Mr. Speaker, the Canadian government throws Quebec under the bus all year long, but when election time rolls out, something magical happens.
On May 25, the Liberal member for Lac-Saint-Jean went out to announce $700,000 for Saguenay businesses. I do not imagine they will be adding that to their electoral expenses. The problem is not the investment itself, it is the timing. It is quite simply unacceptable.
Did the government attempt to influence the Chicoutimi byelection using public money?
