Kariane Bourassa is clear: respect in politics should be the norm. However, the young MP already has several bad experiences with certain elected officials in her constituency.
Perhaps the worst of them: the mayor grabbed a 32-year-old woman by the collar.
The day after the physical confrontation, the mayor in question apologized for his unacceptable behavior.
Mme Bourassa accepted his apology and did not file a complaint.
She even refuses to name him so as not to add fuel to the fire. But despite everything, she has a very clear explanation.
“I’m young, I’m blonde, I’m small,” she explained to Antoine Robitaille via QUB radio.
Listen to the testimony of MP Kariane Bourassa, on the microphone of Antoine Robitaille, via QUB radio :
Another mayor simply refused to speak to her directly, instead calling a cabinet minister.
The member for Charlevoix-Côte-de-Beaupré was forced to set the record straight.
Remember that Kariane Bourassa was elected in 2022 with a large majority in this election cycle.
