The day after the broadcast of the program “JE” on the decline of Saint-Élie-de-Caxton and the allegations of a toxic climate at town hall, the Legault government was arrested.
In this small village in the Mauricie, we feel that people have lost confidence. Some say they have been abandoned.
As part of the investigation, storyteller Fred Pellerin, who put Saint-Élie-de-Caxton on the map, said: “We couldn’t find a tool. There is nothing to do. We bathe in this black water there. We call for help and no one comes to help us ”.
The Minister of Municipal Affairs, Andrée Laforest, maintains that she has taken all the necessary actions. At the end of her investigation, she said that there had been problems of perception.
“If there are advisers who feel mistreated, there is the Ministry of Labor,” the minister explained in an interview with LCN on Friday.
The opposition does not budge, the CAQ must intervene urgently in Saint-Élie-de-Caxton. “An intervention must be made quickly, supervision must be considered,” said MP Marie-Claude Nichols, municipal affairs spokesperson for the official opposition.
