LOL ... you may have read it somewhere (I did too) but it's just a load of crap posted on the Internet which ignorant people take to the face value as true info without using their own brain.I thought she was a billionaire? Could've sworn I read somewhere that she inherited a **** ton of money.... maybe i'm imagining it
Her family, while apparently well off, is nowhere as rich as some think it is. Last year her dad had to sell the family home (the house Bouchard grew in) to pay $850K CAD to the Government in back taxes which makes you wonder why would someone truly rich would have to resort to such an extreme measure, even if it's not the only property owned, to pay such an amount. They would simply write a cheque for the amount owned or would not try to skim the Gov on taxes in the first place.
Also, you wonder why his supposedly rich daughter did not spare the change to save him the trouble and simply write him a cheque to pay his debt; $850K is no big deal if someone's net worth is in multi-millions as believed.
Here it is an article on the matter from a local news paper (in French): https://www.journaldequebec.com/2018/05/05/le-fisc-est-aux-trousses-du-pere-deugenie-bouchard
This is in addition to another failed tax avoidance scheme he pulled off to finance his daughter's tennis career (why do that for $80K if you are really rich?) on which CRA (Canada Revenue Agency) called him off few years ago. He lost the case in the Tax Court as well (see article below for some details).
There is however an wealthy individual in Quebec, which is one the Canadian billionaires, named Alain Bouchard (worth about 3.9 Billion USD according to Forbes 2019) which was probably used as a hook for the fake news. However he is not related to Bouchard and he has 4 children on his own but none of them named Eugenie .
While Bouchard is certainly not poor (multi millionaire for sure) she is nowhere as rich as some people here think she is.
