Quebec Liberals investigating sex-assault allegation against one of their own
By The Canadian Press — Oct 20 2016

QUEBEC — The Quebec Liberal government is reeling after an allegation of sexual assault against a male caucus member.

Premier Philippe Couillard said Thursday he's taking the matter seriously and has asked the party whip to launch an internal investigation to determine if the accusation is founded.

At a Universite Laval vigil Wednesday evening in support of victims of alleged sex crimes at a student residence, a young woman said she had been assaulted while working as a hostess at a Quebec City restaurant in the summer of 2014.

In a Facebook post that has since been deleted, the woman wrote the alleged aggressor was a Liberal member of the legislature.

He was not named.

She wrote that the sitting politician allegedly blackmailed her to not pursue the complaint, but that she ended up filing one with police a year later.

The young woman said in the social media post the investigation went nowhere and she claimed she ultimately lost her job because the politician was an old friend of the restaurant owner.

She said she has been marked for life by the event — both physically and psychologically.

Quebec City police confirmed that a complaint was filed in the spring and that an investigation is ongoing.

Couillard told reporters the matter will be treated with the highest priority.

Doesn't he follow the lead of his opposite number in Ottawa? Justin just ran two of his MPs out of the party on gossip alone! What is it, you cross the Ottawa River, and its a different world?

Justin doesn/t respect the law. It isn't fast enough and isn't certain enough to produce convictions.
