After Louis-Charles Thouin, Sylvain Lévesque, François Jacques, Gilles Bélanger, Yves Montigny, this time, it is Kariane Bourassa, the MP for Charlevoix–Côte-de-Beaupré .

The Coalition Avenir Québec (CAQ) has been at the center of controversy for two weeks due to its financing practices and two of its deputies, Louis-Charles Thouin and Sylvain Lévesque, are the subject of an investigation by the Ethics Commissioner.

In a capture of screen obtained by The Canadian Press, Ms. Bourassa invites donors to meet the Minister of Municipal Affairs, Andrée Laforest, to discuss issues that concern you, we read, in exchange for a $100 donation to the party fund.

However, it is an employee of the National Assembly, Maxime Tremblay, who is the resource person for this fundraising activity.

Mr. Tremblay, however, provided his personal address.

Kariane Bourassa's political attaché sent to Radio -Canada, the MP's reaction, in writing.

The invitations for this fundraising activity were made by my committee of activists and I, from our personal emails. All rules were respected. I will not accept anyone questioning my integrity! At the CAQ, integrity is a fundamental value, a non-negotiable value. This is why the Prime Minister announced this morning that our party would give up private financing until the implementation of new rules.

Let us specify that in the case of Sylvain Lévesque, the Ethics Commissioner is investigating the use by a member of the staff of the Chauveau constituency office, in the exercise of his duties, computer equipment and the official email address provided by the National Assembly to promote the partisan fundraising activities of the Coalition Avenir Québec.
