Yeah, that was on both the CTV and CBC news today.
For decades there's been whispering that the construction industry in
Quebec was in cohoots with the mafia, and a task force to root out all
the corruption has been doing a pretty effective job at finding out
who's been lining their pockets with money from government construction
The previous mayor was forced to resign about 7 months ago (last
November), and his replacement was seen as being clean as a whistle.
But, apparantly, this task force is digging pretty deep, because the two
projects that Applebaum was arrested for were done back in 2003.
I guess they figure if he's ever had his hands in the cookie jar, he's
dirty, and needs to go.
I'm just glad that they're getting rid of corruption in Quebec politics.
It's been going on too long.
