Does she have what it takes?
In the Gazette this morning, there is a large article on Pauline Marois and her husband’s estate on Ile Bizard. The article suggests some shady dealings done in order for them to have acquired this property. I can’t say that I’m surprised. As I often say, the politicians job is to secure votes from the poor and to secure money from the rich all on the premise of protecting one from the other. Hypocrisy seems to be a requirement for running for office. What, too cynical? I thought it was particularly telling that she graciously invited journalists to view her modest home in Charlevoix overlooking the St Lawrence river, while never inviting them to her “real home” on Ile Bizard. (Their words not mine.) Looks like she’s learned the ropes well.
