In his previous speech, Minister Christian Dubé noted a few examples of the value of his ministry with the investment of the company, which was presided over by the President of the Association.
If I hire a nurse’s aide, it pays in net $24 to $32 per hour […] now in Abitibi, you’ll charge $80.95 an hour, with a gross margin of 170% there, which I’m talking about.

Mr. Lapointe argued that we should account for the newspapers and allowances for the distance, besides recalling several times that he was not present to defend his business.
My crew has nothing to hide, he said. Patrice Lapointe said he was open to presenting elected officials with financial matters in a confidential manner, which was confirmed to him by the president of the parliamentary committee.

Mr. Lapointe emphasized that the pandemic has highlighted our importance and that the future will be based on sustainable cooperation and not burning the earth.
Minister Dubé reminded him that his association had taken action against the government.
As for me, I have come to defend an indefensible minister who has been mentioned twice today.
Well, I think, you had a hen with golden eggs that cooked for a week and you wanted three twelve days, we call it greed, cried Vicar Vincentius Marissal.
