One question for the Journal de Montréal

Public security minister Jacques Dupuis has been seen on the television quite a bit, but for some reason the Journal de Montréal hasn’t been able to secure an interview. Rather than accepting that newspapers simply aren’t as cool as television, the Journal is whining about it, and has published a list of questions for the minister about Sunday’s riot and the relationship between police and citizens.

The questions are pretty standard reporter questions, but as a fellow journalist pointed out to me, and as I now ask the Journal:
