Francois Legault knows potential buyers of Quebecor Media

pierre-karl-peladeau-cotes-francoisThe head of the Future Coalition Québec (CAQ), François Legault, says Quebec business people are willing to acquire the subsidiaries of Quebecor Media conglomerate sector.

Mr. Legault argued Wednesday that three or four people would be in a position to do a deal which would keep a Quebec property to these companies.

On Wednesday, the PQ leader Pierre Karl Péladeau, Quebecor controlling shareholder, reiterated that he does not wish to sell his block of shares.

Mr. Péladeau reiterated that such a transaction would expose Quebec to the loss of the headquarters of the company, which is also active in the telecommunications sector.

But Mr. Legault argued that the corporate media component that raises conflict of interest concerns with the political activities of Mr. Péladeau, find a buyer.

Just before a caucus of its deputies Wednesday morning Mr. Péladeau confirmed that he gave the instruction not to sell its shares to the agent to whom he entrusted his title last week.

“I did not intend to sell the shares that have been bequeathed to me by my father, he said. I did not intend to sell the shares of a Quebec company and losing a home office. I campaign for companies to keep them in Quebec. ”

But for Mr. Legault, who judges the situation of Mr. Péladeau incompatible with his political involvement, PQ leader is not obliged to sell its shares.

“These are private conversations, but I had several conversations in recent months, with business people of Montreal, he said. There are some who are willing to buy Quebecor Media section. Currently Mr. Péladeau a false argument when he said, “I want to keep Quebecor to keep it that Quebec ‘.”
