The leader of the Bloc Quebecois is categorically denying allegations that were made against him Tuesday night in an anonymous Facebook post.
Yves-Francois Blanchet reacted today through his spokeswoman, Carolane Landry.
Landry says in a statement that Blanchet "unequivocally denies" the allegations, adding the Bloc leader is inviting the person who published the post to make an official complaint to authorities.
Landry says it is Blanchet's continued wish that the justice system be used to protect real victims of criminal acts.
She says Blanchet will continue his professional activities as Bloc leader and will not make any further comment on the allegations.
