Special roaming on QUB radio: Lionel Carmant, the great absentee

Benoit Dutrizac really wanted to hold a big forum on homelessness on his QUB radio microphone, but Lionel Carmant was conspicuous by his absence. However, six mayors quickly understood the importance of this debate and immediately responded to this call: Évelyne Beaudin (Sherbrooke), Bruno Marchand (Québec), Daniel Coté (Gaspé), Guy Caron (Rimouski), Catherine Fournier (Longueuil) and Mélanie Dufresne. (Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu).

To this impressive panel we must also add the mayors France Bélisle (Gatineau) and Julie Bourdon (Granby), who had previously spoken before Dutrizac’s microphone. Excerpts were also presented.

“Mayors have stories to tell, complaints to announce,” Dutrizac exclaimed during his meeting with presenter Alexandre Dubé. I think we don’t know what is happening in our cities. »

In all the horror stories told by the mayors, there is no trace of Lionel Carmant. The minister was apparently not available to hear the mayors’ stories.

It must be said that QUB radio tried by all means to get the Minister responsible for Social Services to participate in this important debate.

“We’ve been inviting him since last spring, Lionel Carmant, to come and talk about his traveling game plan,” Dutrizac explained. There I understand why he doesn’t come for an interview. It’s because he doesn’t know what to say, he doesn’t have a game plan, he doesn’t know what to do! »
