Quebec’s former lieutenant-governor Lise Thibault will have to spend at least a few more days in jail on the sentence she received for fraud and breach of trust. The 77-year-old former viceregal had her first parole hearing on Friday but the two members of the Commission des libérations conditionnelles who presided over the hearing could not reach a unanimous decision on whether she is ready to be released. Beginning in 2007, Thibault was accused of spending beyond the limits of her expense account. Questions on her spending continued after her departure, with federal and provincial auditors general pointing to $700,000 in unjustified expenses.
