The Ethics Commissioner and ethics announced that it had opened an investigation into Sylvain Lévesque, second vice-president of the National Assembly and CAQ deputy for Chauveau, concerning a possible breach of the Code of Ethics and Professional Conduct members of the National Assembly.

The opening of this investigation follows a request from the solidarity deputy for Rosemont, Vincent Marissal, under article 91 of the Code. The latter claims to have reasonable grounds to believe that Mr. Lévesque would have committed a breach of section 36 of the Code, which provides that members of the National Assembly may authorize the use of State goods and services for activities related to the exercise of their office.

In her press release, the commissioner emphasizes that the alleged facts concern the use, by a staff member of the Chauveau constituency office in the exercise of her duties, computer equipment and the official email address provided by the National Assembly to promote the partisan fundraising activities of the Coalition Avenir Québec.

To support his request, Vincent Marissal relays certain facts presented in an article from Radio-Canada (New window) concerning the response sent to a citizen who requested the help of MP Lévesque to advance her file with the Minister of Finance, Éric Girard.

“After a few reminders from him, an employee of the office of the member for Chauveau then replied to him, four months later, that Minister Girard was passing through his constituency. However, she should pay to meet him,” we quote in the press release from the Ethics Commissioner.
