A couple of parents grieving the loss of a child, who died in a road accident involving an intoxicated driver, claims to have been redirected to a fundraising cocktail of the Coalition Avenir Québec (CAQ) to meet the Minister of Transport and Sustainable Mobility, Geneviève Guilbault.

Antoine Bittar and Élizabeth Rivera made this declaration in parliamentary committee, Thursday afternoon, as part of special consultations surrounding Bill 48 on road safety.

The couple, who wanted to be able to meet Ms. Guilbault in order to make her aware of the dangers of drunk driving, said that the office of CAQ MP Marilyn Picard had advised them, to do so, to participate in a cocktail on October 12. at $100 where the minister was to be present. Which they both did.

It was In a restaurant. There was a fundraising activity. We were told: "You buy the tickets and you meet the minister; you have two minutes each.

A quote from Élizabeth Rivera, bereaved mother and president of MAAD Montréal

I didn't agree, Ms. Rivera said. I said to Antoine: "I don't want to do that." But […] he convinced me. We have been. We met the minister. We had our two minutes. And honestly, when I left the place, I was really disappointed. And I found it unacceptable that we were asked to pay $200.

Mr. Bittar and Ms. Rivera testified Thursday on behalf of Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD Canada), an organization that campaigns for the blood alcohol level of motorists to be lowered from 0.08% to 0. .05%. Proof of the effectiveness of such a measure has been made in other provinces, they argued.
