(Carleton) The return of Nathalie Normandeau behind a microphone and as the holder of a well paid job does not change the strategy of the group that launched a fund to financially help the former Deputy Prime Minister to pay his legal fees. The campaign is held.
“We are delighted that Nathalie has got a new job. The fund was not created because she had no job, but to assist in his defense. The reasons that motivated us to create the Fund are still the same. The new job Nathalie changes nothing, “said Fabrice Bourque, President of the Fund, in a statement.
