These amendments were inevitable because of Daniel Breton’s resignation from his post as the Environment Minister last week. He was pressured to take this step when numerous reports about his past were revealed. These reports cited by several news sources included driving infractions, and financial woes. Breton was once charged with over speeding his Porsche at 275 km/h, along with convictions of driving without a license. Later he was also expelled from his house in 2005 and 2009 for non-payment of rent, and did not pay the fines imposed by those cases up till now. Revenue Quebec fined Breton in 2007 for problems with income tax, and in 1998 he was convicted for employment insurance fraud. Meanwhile he was being blatantly accused by the opposition parties for bullying members of an independent environmental review board (BAPE).
