The address he acquired in 2015 now automatically points to the current site of Quebec’s Conservative Party when trying to access it.
At the time, the Conservative leader was a co-host with Nathalie Normandeau on FM 93, a Quebec radio station.
Mr. Duhaime purchased this domain name for $30, suggesting that the area should be closed.
On March 3, 2015, on air, he told his co-host, from Gaspé himself, that we need to have a real debate on Gaspé.
“Gaspé, it doesn’t work, there are too many distances, and too little population, or enough local resources to justify the subsidies it’s currently getting. Gaspé needs to stop asking the rest of Quebec to support it,” he said at the time.
Reached by the QMI agency, Cédric Lapointe, the press secretary of the former host, who became the leader of the Quebec Conservative Party, assured that the party had nothing to do with the situation and stated that the leader would not give an interview. thing
Eric Duhaime regretted visiting Gaspé last year, saying, “Not only did my thinking evolve, but time proved me wrong.” “I was under the impression that Gaspasia was going to experience a boom. We’ve always talked about the disfigurement and the declining region. It’s our understanding of Gaspasia, especially the factory called Gaspasia, that’s a failure.”
Mr. Duhaime noted last year that the Gaspé had been drained of its resources for the past 50 years and had to live dependent on the state.
