Several media outlets invited Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton to comment on the Quebec and federal budgets announced on March 20 and 29, 2012, respectively.

Other than the press releases (Québec and federal budgets) that were published following the budget lock-ups, which set us apart, some of our experts gave their observations and demonstrated their tax and financial expertise in several media outlets and various regions of the Firm’s network.

Tax Partners Bernard Poulin and Luc Lacombe, who both attended the two lock-ups, gave several interviews, notably with hosts Paul Arcand and Paul Houde.

The following are some of our experts’ appearances in no particular order:


  • Luc Lacombe provided comments in an article published in the magazine Protégez-vous, as did Michel Lefebvre in an article published in La Presse. Réal Létourneau contributed to an article in La Tribune.


We should also mention, among others, Stéphane Lagacé (Rivière-du-Loup office), Pierre Jones, Sylvain Gilbert, Guy Fauteux and Jean-François Thuot who delivered post-budget conferences, which further extended the Firm’s visibility. Lastly, Éric Dufour was interviewed several times, namely as President of the Chambre de commerce de Saguenay, in several media outlets, including Radio-Canada radio, newspaper Le Quotidien and radio station Kool 105,5 FM.
