GATINEAU, QC, June 18, 2019 /CNW Telbec/ - Considering that QCNA Executive Director Sylvie Goneau is running in the federal election as a candidate, QCNA and Sylvie Goneau have come to a new agreement, effective June 13, 2019.
Sylvie Goneau is taking a Leave of Absence from QCNA Executive Director duties from the period including June 17, 2019 to October 30, 2019.
The members of the Board of Directors of QCNA appreciate the work done by Ms Goneau for the year that she was at the helm of the organization and wish her well in her endeavour.
"Civic engagement is at the core of Canadian values," notes QCNA President Lily Ryan. "But newspapers in Quebec go to great length to remain as a-political as they can. Ms Goneau agrees to a leave of absence to eliminate any possible perception of conflict of interest or partisanship and we thank her for her dedication to the growth of the industry."
