8:53 P.M. More MERDE from KBec !!! …

While Premier Jean Charest told the Quebec legislature Tuesday he has not decided yet whether to call a public inquiry into the province’s construction industry ,  a veteran provincial Liberal confided to reporters that a decision has been made  , without actually using the word ‘ inquiry ‘ …

‘ Yes ,  people will be satisfied  ‘ Henri-Francois Gautrin , who represents Montreal’s Verdun riding in the provincial legislature , told reporters.

‘ As far as I know ,  a decision has been made ‘ he added …

Charest reiterated that his government has taken a series of measures to tighten laws and has named a permanent anti-corruption unit with more than 180 investigators …

‘ The government has taken firm steps , is very determined to get to the bottom of things (and) is protecting absolutely no one in Quebec ,  not a single citizen ,  including all those who sit in the Quebec ( legislature ) ‘  Charest said ,  referring to charges laid last week against former Liberal family minister Tony Tomassi …

BULLSHIT !!! …
