Don Macpherson: Everyone has their price – now we know Normandeau’s
Even though it’s only April, we already have a strong nominee for quote of the year in Quebec politics:
“It was Céline Dion, after all.”
That was the excuse that Nathalie Normandeau gave Radio-Canada’s investigative program Enquête for accepting concert tickets from a municipal contractor while she was minister of municipal affairs in the Charest government.
Enquête disclosed last Thursday that Normandeau received nine tickets to a luxury suite at the Bell Centre in Montreal for a concert by the Québécoise pop diva in February 2009 from contractor Lino Zambito.
