About Claude Blanchet

From Wikipedia

Claude Blanchet is a Canadian financier who served as the CEO of the solidarity fund of the Quebec Federation of Labour (Fonds de solidarité de la Fédération des Travailleurs du Québec) (from 1983 to 1997), and later CEO of the Société générale de financement, a government-owned holding company.

He started his financial career as the right arm of financial mogul Robert Campeau, serving in the Ottawa region. In his early 30s, Blanchet started to serve in public labour organizations.

He is married to Pauline Marois (leader of the Parti Québécois from 2007, and the Premier of Quebec from 2012).

Blanchet was named in the Charbonneau Commission and summoned by the legislative opposition to explain a secret 'deal' with the FTQ. Their testimony was deferred when Marois called an election in March 2014.
