MONTREAL – A second investigation has been launched stemming from the Police raids at the MUHC’s headquarters. According to a search warrant filed with the Quebec courts, there are allegations that former MUHC Director Stella Lopreste may have defrauded the McGill University Health Centre out of as much as $1.6 million over 10 years.It is alleged that the money was used for the purchase of personal items. Lopreste left the MUHC in 2011.
NASSAU, BAHAMAS — For more than a year, reporters have tried without success to reach Arthur Porter, a mysterious figure who occupied important, sensitive positions in Canada before controversies erupted and forced his resignations. He left the country, leaving serious questions and allegations unanswered.An oncologist by trade, Dr. Porter was appointed by Stephen Harper’s government in 2010 to chair Canada’s Security and Intelligence Review Committee, which oversees the national spy agency, CSIS. He was also in charge of the McGill University Health Centre (MUHC), one of the country’s largest public health agencies where, it was recently disclosed, a number of financial irregularities occurred during Dr. Porter’s leadership. This week, the National Post found Dr. Porter working inside a private cancer clinic that he owns and operates in this sunny Caribbean city. Would Dr. Porter, 56, ever return to Canada? “What for?” he replied curtly. “It’s a question that I don’t choose to answer at this time.”
Dr Arthur Porter it seems to gain sympathy has indicated recently he has cancer and is being treated for it in his own hospital.. well I do not believe him.. he has clearly been a con man and a liar much too long time.
Kuwait deal uses MUHC doctors and nurses A private Montreal company with close ties to the McGill University Health Centre signed a five-year, $86-million hospital-services agreement with the government of Kuwait in 2010, a deal that makes regular use of MUHC doctors and nurses.. Under the deal, the MUHC is to be paid by the private company, Montreal Medical International Inc. (MMI). However, an accounting of those funds has never appeared on any MUHC annual reports or other public document. The Régie de l’assurance-maladie du Québec is investigating the business model of Medical Second Opinion to determine if it confirms with the Quebec medicare law, as MUHC doctors are providing therapeutic advice to patients who have private insurance.
just 2 years?
Seriously I would now still investigate all purchases made at the McGill University Health Centres Hospitals..
