News bits from the campaign
Radio-Canada broke a story on L’Enquête about how an SQ surveillance of a Liberal fund-raiser was cut short minutes after the man met with Jean Charest at a motel in Dorval, back in 2009. Charest spent Thursday saying this kind of journalism wasn’t ethical; the Fédération professionnelle des journalistes hit back with a cutting statement: Il n’appartient pas au premier ministre, ni à aucun autre politicien, de dicter aux médias leurs choix rédactionnels.
Radio-Canada finds the PQ is ahead in Facebook activity but Québec solidaire excels at Twitter.
You know, I would really love to read a straight-up account from Jean Charest about how he got entangled with the Mafia, from the first glance across the room, to the moment when he realized he was in too deep to get out, and examining the various stages as it sank in that he was simply going to have to keep telling bigger and bigger lies to keep himself and his party afloat. Could make a good movie.
