His wife and co-founder of the group, Régine Chassagne, is one of liberal leader Dominique Anglade’s great friends. She also signed the foreword to the up-and-coming Prime Minister’s book, This Quebec that lives in me.
Mme Anglade was asked to respond to that controversy on Wednesday. “What can I tell you, when I read this, I was extremely disturbed. The allegations are serious. In such a situation, I have always said: The victims must be able to express themselves, denounce and file a complaint,” said Dr.me England.
Should the Arcade Fire group be cancelled? “The victims have to verbalise all of this. And that there really are complaints,” she added.
Butler’s refuted allegations are already showing consequences. Programmers from CBC, WKND, BLVD, and Indie88, among others, have announced that they are removing works from Arcade Fire.
