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:
- Bernard Poulin exchanged with Paul Houde on 98.5 FM in Montréal in addition to his interview on Planète 99.5 FM in Lac-St-Jean and with journalists from the NRJ 102.5 FM and Rouge FM 94.7 FM newsrooms of the Centre-du-Québec region. He also contributed to an article in Les Affaires.
- 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.
- Bernard Poulin made a second appearance with Paul Houde on 98,5 FM in Montréal (listen to the interview at 00:10:05), as well as on Planète 99,5 FM in Lac-St-Jean.
- Luc Lacombe was also interviewed by Paul Arcand on 98,5 FM in Montréal, in addition to providing comments on NRJ 102,5 FM and Rouge 94,7 FM in the Centre-du-Québec region, as well as on 103,5 FM Radio du Grand Lanaudière.

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.
