AUBUT DELAYS MEETING WITH PARIZEAU, TWO COULD MEET TOMORROW
Published May 24, 1995
Nordiques spokesperson Jean Martineau said yesterday's scheduled meeting between Nordiques President Marcel Aubut and Quebec Premier Jacques Parizeau was postponed because Aubut was out of town on business. The CANADIAN PRESS said the delay "looked more like another round of one-upmanship between the equally strong-willed Parizeau and Aubut than a sign of a breakthrough in efforts to keep the Nordiques in Quebec." Parizeau: "All I could say was yes. If that's what you want, you'll have your meeting on Thursday" (CP/TORONTO STAR, 5/24). In Montreal, the GAZETTE's Don MacPherson writes, "One has to wonder why Parizeau is allowing himself, and the office of premier, to be jerked around by a would-be carpetbagger like this." MacPherson notes that Parizeau "seems to care more about the Nordiques than Quebec City does" (Montreal GAZETTE, 5/24).
