Charest Trying To Avoid Holding Inquiry: Marois -- Montreal Gazette

Construction allegations making Montreal look bad outside Quebec, PQ leader says

The Charest government is doing everything it can to avoid having a public inquiry into allegations of corruption in Quebec's construction industry, Parti Québécois leader Pauline Marois charged yesterday.

The government has thrown up a "smokescreen," she said told the National Assembly, adding that the media based outside Quebec are giving the impression that Montreal is a pool of corruption.

My Comment: If I was Marois, I would be very careful on who she is accusing of "impropriety". As For Premier Charest, an inquiry is (probably) going to reveal a lot of skeletons in everyone's closet .... but on principal and decency he should call for one anyway.
