For a long time now there have been charges and counter-charges about crooked dealing in the Quebec construction industry – bribes, over-payments – government kick-backs. A new poll out today shows that 77 per cent of Quebeckers want an inquiry. Premier Charest maintains that any charges of corruption are a matter for the police to investigaste – not for a costly public inquiry. Some say Charest fears a full inquiry would hurt the Liberal party.
Rumours in today’s press say Charest is moving closer to a major inquiry and may, in fact, announce one tomorrow morning.
Should there be an inquiry into the Quebec construction industry?
What do you think?
