Pascal Bérubé cleared by the ethics commissioner

Photo: Jacques Boissinot The Canadian Press The Ethics Commissioner of the National Assembly considers that the actions criticized by Pascal Bérubé by the CAQ are “anecdotal”.

PQ MP Pascal Bérubé used his MP email in too little a way for this to constitute a breach of the code of ethics for elected representatives of the National Assembly, concludes an investigation report filed Thursday .

The Ethics Commissioner of the National Assembly, Ariane Mignolet, considered that the actions criticized against Mr. Bérubé by the Coalition Avenir Québec (CAQ) are not sufficiently significant.

“Taking into account the above, I conclude that the Deputy did not commit a breach of article 36 of the Code by sending, on September 15, 2023, a communication to members and supporters of the Party in the constituency of Jean-Talon from the email address provided by the National Assembly,” indicates the commissioner in her report.

The code of ethics prohibits MPs from using public resources for partisan purposes.
